    With that Volvo suggestion, I am contemplating 'unfriending' WAY now.

    Come on Nick, if I had said Volvo 850 SEDAN, it would have been understandable that you want to unfriend me. But I said WAGON! Everyone knows Volvo wagons are cool!!! Smiley 


    Exactly. Also Ferrari wagons... Smiley

    You mean more soccer mums drive station wagons than SUVs? That is a complete reverse from the rest of the world. Very few wagons are sold in Australia nowadays. It's all SUVs


    I agree. I see far more SUVs driven by soccer moms/families than station wagons nowadays. My next car will most certainly be a station wagon.

    Porker, only thing I'm interested in from the last gen RS6 is the V10!

    If you want a V10 station, imo there's only one option, E61 M5. The V10 in the RS6 is much more anonymous. Smiley

    Nope. No wagon. Hate them. Never got one. I call them housewife or baby movers, even more than SUVs.

    What? Why? That makes no sense, these silly SUVs are the same just higher and less planted on the road.

    It beat almost anything when it came out, not sure but station wagons can be very cool. SUVs have more of a soccer mom feel in the ROW.

    Re: About to buy a '95 Ford Escort LX

    I went to my local Audi dealer today and guess what I found? This beauty below! You asked previously if the wheels, mirrors and indicators were directly from a 993, but I found a couple of even more interesting direct showcase of Porsche's involvement in this project, as pictured below. My friend who was with me told me that the brake caliper was indeed how the car came from the factory.

    Get it! Smiley

    I read up on the RS2 and it is truly a special car:

    • Joint venture between Audi and Porsche
    • Based on the Audi 80 Avant
    • Manufactured from March 1994 to July 1995
    • 2891 cars built
    • Assembled by Porsche in Zuffenhausen
    • 315 PS from a 2.2 litre inline 5-cylinder 20-valve turbocharged engine
    • 0 - 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds
    • Top speed 262 km/h
    • Porsche-designed braking and suspension systems
    • 304 mm / 299 mm vented brake discs front/rear with 4-piston Brembo calipers (with Porsche lettering)
    • 7.0Jx17 inch Porsche Cup wheels with 245/40 ZR17 tyres  
    • Recaro sport bucket seats

    Love it!

    Yeah, almost as manly as the GT4. Definitely too rough and butch for most SUV-driving soccer-girliemen here.

    That's exactly why I loved the 850 wagon and suggested a 850R wagon! In both BTCC and the Australian Touring car championship, they featured those station wagons. Love them!
