A properly modified STI is a blast and puts down power perfectly... Go for it

I think OP's point (a valid one) was that the 135i has trouble putting down so much power. Even stock with stock RFT's I would always be spinning my wheels. Now with a JB4 and better tires, I'm still spinning my wheels. Even the wider tires of the 1M don't alleviate this problem, as lots of reviews complain that the car's traction control is constantly kicking in. He want AWD for traction at these kind of power levels. Simple question, really, if you guys took a second to think about it.

Oh wait, this is the OT section. OP is a tool, lolol get a hybrid/minivan/econobox.

LOL, thanks guys for all the comments serious or not I at least got my laughs. I do want a fast car as I have had a 450 whp/wtq audi s4, which was faster than the 135i. My point as many have mentioned is that the 135i will be limited by putting the power to the ground aka traction issues.

So I want the power, but I want to also be able to use it via AWD...

P.S. Do they make the prius is AWD?

Chevy Volt. My neighbor has one, and he's been on his first tank of gas for four months now.
