Very little. Nearly all B4's ping on our 98 octane fuel-and a few have destroyed themselves. Even with quite high kilometers they still feel new. Nothing has broken. The main criticism is the lag between the first and second turbo coming on boost.
Excellent car- not sure why I'm getting rid of it. Almost the performance of a WRX with better comfort and less police/thief appeal. Excellent buying second hand.
With a few tweaks (thicker rear sway bar, brake pads) beautiful handling car (has standard Bilsteins).Only weak link is the problem with fuel and turbo setup.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
