    No one twisted their arms. Cry me a river...besides if they can afford a $100k Cayman, dumping it to buy one with a 4L is just another day.

    Seems weird the 4 would ďcommandĒ a premium if the 6 comes back. Especially if the 6 would be limited to a yet to be announced new model. The 4 would logically be the same as now and the 6 would...

    Quite possibly the reason VW has yet to go above 400, as in the Audi 2.0T.

    Re: Return of the six?????!!!!!!

    Itís not just pitch though. It has a different beat. Like a 4, like something is missing or a 6 with a couple dead coil packs/plugs.

    To me, the 4 at speed is just different not better or worse. Itís the lower RPM I donít like. The typical RPM one would hear day to day.

    Re: Return of the six?????!!!!!!

    I actually think it makes it much easier at low RPM, so the steady, repeated passes from the same spot make it pretty easy to tell that is a flat T4.
