    And those all started 40 years ago when 200 hp was a super car.

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    All I'm saying is using awd to increase traction isn't anything new, these exotics have been doing it for the pass decade.

    Sounds like we're saying the same thing. It's clear awd is the way forwards to manage the higher hp levels and the exotics are moving over one by one.

    Sorry, I read this as it was something new they are "moving" too. Most exotics are already AWD.

    It's all good. Looks like Subaru and Audi were right all along. Though, there's a huge difference in how a subie trans behaves compared to say a Lambo. One has safety in mind and the other wants to retain the rwd experience while making use of the front wheels so as not to waste all that HP.
