      Since this question will invariably present itself:

      At what point is the new WRX possibly a better buy than the Golf R? Limited trim gets you leather and for 32k you can get the...

      I think only the Smart, iQ and Cygnet are smaller than the MINI.

      Much like auto manufacturers face a steep (and largely losing) battle with the US consumer with wagons and diesels, the same...

      With everyone clamoring for the BMW 1-series state side, little do we know that BMW has an entire brand dedicated to that market segment - MINI.

      While broadening the MINI brand is definitely...

      Now I see where you're coming from...because I think I might have been there about a decade ago, rationalizing how my Corrado VR6 was better than an Integra Type-R, how all the money and time I was...

      Simple. If the Sport/Comfort rocker switch goes beyond SPORT and into SPORT+, it has the DHP.
      All BMWs have Sport, Comfort (stock), and EcoPro modes. Without DHP, all Sport does is weigh-up the...

      Fairly certain the Hellcat's limits on backroads are far beyond what most can handle. Is it a Cayman? Is it an Elise? Is it a Miata? Hardly, but I can assure you that the Hellcat's limits are far...

      The 228 w/ M Sport & Track Handling comes in at $38,xxx - thats still $5k short of a base M235i, which is a decent chunk of change. That's 13% of the purchase price.
      Personally, if outright speed is...

      Comprehending $1,000,000 is a bit difficult. And my tastes are somewhat skewed to my demographic...that, and with a million dollars, I don't know if I'd really worry about long-term resale value.

      Thanks.

      So, yea, in keeping with my comments, Ford isn't re-writing anything, but rather attempting to prove main-stream tech in exotic applications - which definitely works.
      So far, of the...

      The original NSX re-wrote the "super car" book...this doesn't do that...then again, we're more in an industry of playing catch-up, so it is becoming harder and harder to make that game changing...

      Outside of extensive track work, anything "bigger" than stock PP with upgraded pads, is overkill and a waste of money.

      Makes perfect sense, since drag increases exponentially the faster you go, requiring more torque to maintain or increase speed.

      BUT...does it take into account engine load? My 2002 WRX feels...
