      LOL. You gotta love the FWD econobox TCL race-car drivers.

      Because he wants a reliable and good performing car? :rolleyes:

      My vote to the TL-SH if you don't mind the styling. I would absolutely skip the auto and go for the manual.

      Give me the TLX SH-AWD Type S with that motor. You can keep the Civic Type R.

      I think it would annoy me as well. Winding up the TSI north of 6K made me cringe and that is a pretty smooth turbo four.

      Now I understand a little more what you are trying to say. I agree about the TSI/FSI, they feel much faster than they are in the low end with little to no lag (outside of the weird DSG lag). The good...

      I really like the sport seats in my 328i but I can see them being a problem if someone is overweight.

      Thanks for the review. The exterior styling is starting to grow on me a little and I think the rest of the car is great. I am a little surprised about your comments in reference to the TSI. Mine felt...

      It is not an oversight. 0-60 times are a very small part of the equation. These cars are not and never were all about straight line acceleration.
    10. I just think you are putting way too much...

      I just think you are putting way too much emphasis on the 0-60 times. I understand if the gap became wider at the end of the 1/4 in favor of the 4 series but exact opposite is true.
    11. If 0-60 times were that important to me I would...

      If 0-60 times were that important to me I would not waste my money on either of those cars. As you can see what the ATS lacks in 0-60, it picks up as the both cars accelerate and actually pulls away...

      Only people that have very limited knowledge on this topic would feel this way (about 90 percent of TCL). BMW's were never about 0-60 times and still aren't. How many times are you going to high RPM...

      What are you talking about? What margin.....Dude look at the 5-60 times for both, its a .2 second difference...

      That was my biggest concern since I really want a manual. Seems like the powertrain complaints have been addressed and the 101 mph trap speed is very good IMO.

      Yeah, they are very close in power, look at the nearly identical trap speed.

      0-60 times are really meaningless, at least to me. This takes absolutely nothing from the car and the manual has been greatly improved over the '12 models. Now with a re-tuned engine it puts down...

      Not this s... again, but if it makes you happy the tacky digital gauges are on the way.

      It does. At least that was the case with the previous Turbo/manual combo:

      If you look at the charts for our two competitors, you'll see the cars are dead-nuts even to 15 and 30 mph, so why the big...

      The 3 series has only one thing going for it and that is the N55 but I was really referring to the 4 cyl turbo vs 328. Chevy is going to sell this as a crate engine starting next month and once the...
