      Blame your boss. Not a day off in three years? Yeeesh.

      Lets not distract from the fact that the pre-refresh ILX is mostly uncompetitive, especially in the powertrain department. A 150 bhp four-banger hooked up to a 5-speed auto in a car that's supposed...

      I don't get it. Why would someone want harsh, blue-tinted light instead of a pleasant soft-white? Just because LED = sooper hi-tech?

      The Mk6 Golf R has a soundaktor. Remove the plastic rain tray under the wipers and you'll see it. I recommend disconnecting it and wrapping the connector with electrical tape for a small measure of...

      THANK YOU. There's a lot of confusion on these forums regarding Haldex's mechanical capabilities.

      Funny how pictures don't really show how much taller the M235i is in person (particularly the height of the frontal area).

      Well that's about the most damning review I've read in one of the advertising-dependent buff books in a long time.

      Well done, cockerpunk :thumbup: And I thought I used to be badass for driving my track-prepped 318i (no traction control, off-brand winter tires) through MN winters.

      Honk if you see me this...

      AWD is the most significant point of differentiation here, in my opinion. If you live in a climate with serious winters, you might really like the AWD. A Golf R on snow tires would be unstoppable...

      The coffee and donut holes (I think provided by Morrie's Mazda?) are kind of half-assed, if you ask me. I mean, I know it's free, but I've never understood why the AutoMotorPlex doesn't invite some...

      I wish Honda still made cars like the first TSX. Typically great Honda engine/gearbox/chassis and the clean styling is aging exceptionally well. Yet another Acura that I would have liked even better...

      This. The Mk6 Golf R put down a very respectable time (roughly on par with the 335i, if I recall) but I just don't believe it could have done so on the stock all-season tires.

      Any idiot can regurgitate spec sheets. I'd like to know about the haptic qualities of each car. How do they feel to drive? What's the suspension tuning like? Tell us about the steering...

      You're reminding me how awful heel-toeing was in that car...I had forgotten about that detail. Removing the clutch-delay valve improved things somewhat, but I still found myself stabbing the gas...

      This. The e-throttle is ridiculously laggy. The car grips harder and turns in a bit more sharply than the E36, but feels heavier and less alive while doing so. "Muted" is a great descriptor here.

      I agree that ZHPs are a bit over-valued by the market. However, I think they'll hold their value well in the long-run because they exemplify the classic BMW sport sedan experience. That being said,...

      Sadly, it wasn't even an option at that point. One of my few complaints about my old ZHP.

      On a side note, my base 1992 318i did have a proper LSD. Go figure.

      I'm guessing the combination of aero and pedestrian safety requirements necessitate the low nose and raised hood-line. I've noticed this on more and more new car designs. It is implemented more...
