A lot of people have to get the next new thing. They impulsively buy an R, then some new car comes out that they think is the next cool thing to get and they move on to that.

Not sure I would call the VAQ a real LSD. I'd take a purely mechanical LSD over that VAQ any day.

It isn't full time AWD. The car has to "sense" something happening to actually get the AWD to engage. If it was full time AWD, I believe the handling would be a little more predictable.
