You’re confusing engine with handling. Audi 5 cylinder is a fantastic motor with gobs of torque from 2800 rpm. It is a much better engine than the VW 4 cylinder and not substantially heavier. Read more

You have it the wrong way round. The 5 cylinder in the Volvo was from Ford.

Correct. Front brakes handle a majority of the braking load on cars therefore they heat up more. Additionally due to the size of the rotors, the source of that heat is substantially closer to the rim

There are a number of performance benefits to lighter rims (and carbon rims in specific). I’m looking at doing a back to back comparison piece on just this subject.

That isn’t an apples to apples comparison as the TE37s don’t meet the engineer specifications from any major automotive company. The Carbon Revolution wheels do.
