      Wouldn't the reliability factor knock the RX8 out of contention? As in aren't new motors every 60-70k for these the reality?

      I'm for turbo'ing/supercharging the BR-Z or FR-S.

      And you drive what? An Accord? Oh but it's the 6MT Accord..much more sporty. :D

      This mirrors my exact experience. After driving both back to back, I'd definitely pick the WRX if a DD. The power difference isn't noticeable and I found it much more enjoyable to drive.

      Yea, my Regal GS that throws up 0.94g on the skidpad and stops as quick as a Corvette is really an old person car. Never mind the adjustable suspension, that in GS mode, will crack teeth going over...

      Daily driver my ***. I suppose it's relative to what you were/are driving currently, but I would never want the STI as a daily driver if commuting for more than 5 miles.

      Why not a WRX? They're kid friendly, especially in hatch/wagon form, and has most of what you're looking for. They tend to win most of the autox events from what I've seen.

      Test drove the new STI and WRX back to back yesterday. In short: The STI is way too aggressive and loud for me as a daily driver, everything from the exhaust, to the jerky clutch and take off, as...

      The other downside to MINI ownership is the lack of dealer network and places that will work on them. I've heard from friends with them that most independent shops won't touch them, and you can't...

      I really like the new exterior, pretty much fixes all the issues I had with the current gen. They also fixed the new steering wheel, altough the center stack could still use work.

      But, this:

      I loved the new seats in the '14 sport package, really awesome seats.

      How's the auto box in these, are the paddle shifters quick?

      Not necessarily the case. :P RWD cars can understeer and have terrible weight distribution, just as the opposite for FWD cars.

      It is not nearly as black or white as people claim it to be. Most of the characteristics argued for one or the other have nothing to do with the drive wheels itself, rather chassis and suspension...

      But if you think the 1.8T is the best deal why get one at all over a FWD GTI? And then you at least get the 2.0T motor. The only reason to get this car is for quattro, which can't be had on the...

      You could also just get the Si, and then for about $4k install a supercharger or turbo kit. That would be a hoot.

      I don't know why Honda won't include xenons on these, I guess to keep the price...

      Does the Cupra have a real mechanical LSD? Not surprised, usually the added weight of a Haldex car kills the balance and sharper handling.
