Hmm- who do you think does it better? I've been even more underwhelmed by the turbo 4s i've tried in:
Fords, Jags, Audis, and VWs.

The main issues I've had with the drivetrain atleast in the 28 models I've driven were the manic way they program the transmission (super aggressive about shifting down to 1st). Also didn't like how the idle is overly rough somtetimes.
