    Yeah man, it's easy to drive a powerful car steadily compared to smaller engine, you really need to rev it up so much just to keep up.

    1. Audi expensive to maintain..yes.. but the $ you pour into the Lancer to mod it is enough to maintain the Audi...
    - Hey you are quite on point on this, all those mods i had are not cheap too. Some electronic products i can moved over to the Audi to improve it further. Like the CVT cooler and TM Works.
    2. Lancer chassis probably compromised/weakened due to the accidents -- not sure how severe
    - Only body panels damage, like your usual grinding the guardrails type of accidents. No damage to chassis as per checked by chassis expert.
    3. You already have a #not1jzparking don't really need another modified lanevo, why not have a sensible comfortable car for normal driving?
    - Hahaha that pun is intended on Izso, i supposed you are right, focus my mods on one actual powerful car rather than distributing my finances. The 1JZ still has lots of things to be done to make the chassis match the new found engine power.

    Yes the Lancer is loud. The only thing i think Lancer will lose out to Audi in terms of driving is cornering, i really need to readjust my driving style or mod the suspension of A6 to able to match my driving style.

    After finding out you have had accidents in the Lancer - I changed my tune to Audi A6. I've been in and driven 2 generations of the A6 and I absolutely love how you can just waft along in that car. It's unbelievably comfortable and that's all I need in my current age and life now. But I know the maintenance costs will be astronomical though.

    If you are sure it's only asthetical damage on the lancer, then I think that's fine.... You already have the Volvo covering the potential role of the audi

    On side note,

    the Audi A6 engine is a 2.0 TFSI Direct Injection engine. Any known problem of this thing ? I believe its the same unit in Golf GTI MK6

    Mod? What mod? Who said anything about modding. I just know that engine is known to produce less horsepower than it is capable/suppose to, so that's a problem that needs to be fixed.
