      The Luxury Package available on the E36 M3 is generally considered less desirable, though not of deal-breaking magnitude.

      If you're a dash stroker and a door thunker, you'll definitely prefer an E46 cab over an E36.

      Really? I did not know this. It would explain my impression that my GLI is quieter on the highway than my old Golf 2.5. Not to mention the longer wheelbase, quieter 2.0T, and 6th gear.

      My '12 GLI...

      As capable as the other cars listed are, the E36 M3 will drive circles around them because a) it's not derived from a Golf and b) it's a product from BMW's good ol' days, when BMW was setting the bar...

      This is correct. I had a ZHP. Since the BMW spot in my garage is for a dedicated weekend/summer fun car, I kept the E36 M3. The ZHP is superior as a daily driver and road trip/highway car.

      Call Burnsville VW and ask to speak with Ugur Solim. He's one of the techs there -- a real car guy and former Mk6 R owner. He may have some good advice for you.

      Can you write a comparison between the R and the Scirocco? Which would you rather flog and why?

      Other than a torque curve located somewhat higher up in the RPMs, I'll bet this thing is about as daily-able as a stock Golf R.

      I just had a pretty nasty cold. Do I qualify for a ride in the McLaren?

      Congrats, OP. I was thinking about picking one up myself. They're just so much fun for the money!

      My girlfriend's '08 Focus doesn't have interior grab handles or map lights. Also, there is neither a trunk release lever nor a handle on the trunk, so the only way to open the trunk is with either...

      Yeah, I certainly wouldn't kick that one out of bed. But if I really want to listen to music, even my relatively modest 2-channel B&W/NAD home system is going to blow away *most* of these high-$...

      Personally, I tend to think that the car is an awful place to listen to music if you truly care about sound reproduction. So, for me, a base stereo is good enough for NPR/BBC.

      Harris' assertion that the Golf R has a more technical, competent chassis compared to the M235i is really quite stunning. I think it says a lot about how good the suspension tune of the new Golf R is...

      Now that I'm 30, I'm suddenly tired of so-called "mature" cars. I'm thinking about ending my life-long addiction to German sleds in tasteful silver/grey/white hues and picking up a garishly painted...

      I honestly think there's some truth to this. I'd say that about most German car drivers. The cars just mask the speed so well that it seems like traffic is moving in slow motion unless you really...

      I haven't driven any of the recent electric-steer BMWs, but as a lifelong BMW enthusiast it is my experience that each new generation of BMW (even M cars) is more filtered and dull than the...
