I also enjoy NA better and honestly, if I want to launch myself my GTI is plenty fast with DSG but it is just not the visceral feel of the IM.
I never tried or was in Marty's car but I drove a 180hp turbo Audi in an IM and it was not my favourite as the trottle was more like a switch and you kind of just hung on for dear life when it took off on you. It reminded me of driving a Kawasaki 1100 and from a standstill I had to hang on for dear life to hold onto the handle bars.
I passed on a real nice VW bug convert 1959 with a 2110cc bags etc, because I just could not take care of another car. but if Rich Drewek @Rich Drewek sells his Ghia and the border is open I might consider it.
