      PP is the only reason why I'm even considering a MK7. I do autoX and track my car, and both the bigger brake and LSD represent a pretty significant step up in areas that are lacking from my MK6...

      "Plus" acts on the rear to help turn-in in dynamic situation, also acts on the front under braking(as in no power applied). Previously XDS only works under power and only on the drive wheel. IMO XDS...

      This season is pretty interesting...the whole stealth thing is fun if not more fictional. I was recently reading Skunk Works (http://www.amazon.com/Skunk-Works-Personal-Memoir-Lockheed/dp/0316743003)...

      Thing is that'll probably what I do, options I care about are PP, and maybe bi-xenons...

      That is true and honestly I did not expect that before I bought my car now. Most just assumes VW costs more but their prices are competitive...

      I can't get away with anything under $39k I think when I tried the 228i config. I like those cars, just as with all Bimmer they are just way pricier...

      2 series are also heavy car, IIRC they are...

      IIRC LSD is included if you go with 6MT. Also Brembos are standard. I just priced one out and currently its $34.5k after $1500 incentive. Last year it went as low as $32 on clearance...

      Does a typical contract position open you up to the profit sharing or you are stuck with contracting agency's pay? We have a designer here thats basically on those "permanent contract" type of...

      The "Sport", "Standard" and "Comfort" isn't the main draw of adaptive damping, its the fact that it is adaptive and it should be able to dial out quite a bit of harshness of the ride, since with most...

      I can tell you this, the cost of DCC shocks as supplied from their supplier(last gen was Tenneco, not sure if MK7 is the same), is not going to be $800/car. But there are other considerations also...

      Well in low traction situation you want the power to shift earlier since it slips earlier(and easier). XDS may be working longer(and at lower speed) and that may elevate brake temperature more. So...

      Fargo on FX

      So how was it? I thought it was pretty spot on in terms of the tone so far, and they say the shows should ramp up much faster from episode 4 on. In watching the movie there were definitely those...

      Only really 2 things I don't want in SE, sunroof and leather seats. Then again most of the feature I could entirely do without. So I'd be content with S with PP and maybe lighting. DCC I could...

      Probably a margin thing. DCC isn't necessarily that expensive, but adding it costs more and they might not be able to get the margin they want until you bundle it with other layers of options. I...

      I'd imagine even on the stuff like the Civic redesign, most of the stuff under the skin is not really that different...

      Rear main is suspected not confirmed, all the symptoms I have is random accumulation of some oil between gearbox and engine block. But outside of that I've seen no other oil anywhere. I don't even...
