Yeah definitely a small list. I've had an STi, I didn't like it. Golf R is a FWD bias with traction control that can't be defeated, and the Audi's have terrible steering but admittedly I haven't looked in a long time. Maybe I'll have to check it out. The allroad seems like a cool vehicle. edit: 211hp.. nevermind.

Plus the Allroad's are all slushboxes too. The R is actually pretty fun as a daily driver, but I think it would fall apart on the track. There are Haldex controllers that can provide a more rwd bias, but I don't think the drivetrain is really made for that.

The B8 S4 is a great drive, with decent steering, they're just large, and very, very heavy and feel like it.
