      I love this car. I'm happy BMW made it in spite of all of the 'enthusiast' vitriol.

      I think it is a very sound package... for people with a little more disposable income. :P

      That's a terrible comparison given the Bugatti is noted to not be profitable and a money-is-no-limit product.

      Oh, man don't even get me started on the ignition case. :facepalm:

      To each his own. I think the Dart is one of the best if not the best compact designs out there.

      The only thing I see are:
      1) Styling that imparts a wide aesthetic (i.e. The flat grilles and...

      Screw that, mang! I love the black treatment on the higher trim Darts and this trim! :P

      I really dig these Chrysler designs of late. :thumbup:

      Aside from their idiotic teasing, which just tells me VW's technical people do not talk with their marketing people, I don't know why it is so hard to believe in the excuse they gave.

      If something doesn't pan out at all and it ends production way early... there is always room for negotiations with Purchasing (that is what they do after all). If the supplier has a legit...

      I can't discuss the details of the contracts, but I can say... IT DEPENDS rings true. You can never pin a generic rule of thumb or whatnot on everything. It's true in about every facet of life and...

      God, I pray it doesn't have that historically cute, pucker face. I hope they graft the new corporate grille on her with a lot if aggressive styling.

      Steel subframes look of lesser material and said material could be high strength steels.
