Keep im mind that the AWD system sucks up ALOT of power. Back when I was lookin at Subies, The 2.5RS was only showing like 96 HP at the wheels when Sportcompactcar was doig their project car. I think it was rated at something around 200-220 at the crank, so that was all eaten up in that heavy drivetrain. I imagine the R32 is a similar story.
That's true fli, but you don't typically see a 50+% drive train loss. Or do you with AWD cars. I know it's an "industry standard" 15% for FWD and about 25-30% for RWD, but I've never heard anything on AWD. So maybe 50% is typical.
Still, I think VW would have been better off giving one to APR and letting them design one of their famous "factory look" turbo kits for it!
Of, just letting them play with it as an N/A car would have been good also.

well, johnny...I was anxious when I got my europlate, and I guess scared to drill holes in my bumper, so thats why I just zip tied the frame right to the grill. but now that I am brave enough to make the jump, I think I will drill and mount. thanks.
