      As the consumer you have the freedom to compare rates and do your research ahead of time. Sometimes the dealers are actually pretty competitive with rates as well. With so much available online, the...

      Everyone in this thread keeps mentioning the Mustang but anyone who shopped the two or actually had a Z knows that they don't really compare driving feel or dynamics wise. On paper the Mustang might...

      Talk them down. Most credit union financing offers GAP for a flat fee, regardless of cars (my local one was ~180 last time I looked). The dealer will usually start off at some multiple of the...

      There is already plenty of aftermarket for the V8/5.0, and probably cheaper to make faster as well. Aftermarket exists outside of 4 banger turbos, especially with Ford or GM V8s. The EB aftermarket...

      Wow, the EcoBoost test numbers are a big letdown. With supposedly 60 more HP, it only traps 2mph more in the 1/4 than the Focus St (252hp). 0-100 isn't too far off either. The 0-60 is OK, but...

      Based on how things are shaping up, a GTI w/ PP (once it's available) is an interesting value proposition vs. the R. While the R has a bigger turbo and will be decently faster, I don't know if that...

      I think it's actually better at being a "luxury" car, but maybe not a sports sedan. It's less agile and nimble than the G37 was. For me, that's losing the appeal of what the G37 was supposed to be,...

      Ok, we all get it- you had a bad experience, you hate forced induction, N/A BMW I6 is the only way to go, etc. etc. Give it a rest.

      They're not all "software engineers". Not even close. They probably have a handful of talented guys that actually do the tuning. Also, engine tuners are not really "software engineers" in the...

      Looks good! Interested in all the exact parts you needed to successfully use the TTRS brakes.

      Sounds like the lack of a real business executive in charge of the finances. If you told me a bunch of car enthusiasts were running a company, I'd expect poor financial management.

      I'm sure Arin or someone else from APR's marketing army will be in here shortly to deny it all and tell us about their upcoming sale and "changing the tuning industry forever". :D

      VW seems to be rating the performance very conservatively, as the previous TTS did 0-60 in about 4.7. Since the S3 is tested to be at 4.4-4.5, this might be a low 4 second car.

      Yes, TCL often uses "NVH" as a negative in regards to any engine not made by Honda, VAG, or BMW.

      It's faster than that, my DSG did 0-60 in 6.3 stock. The manual is a bit slower due to ratios.

      As good as the new earthdreams 4 cylinder is, it's still down 20whp and 40 or more torque from the...

      While Accord 4 cyl 6MT is OK I'd still rather have the GLI at this price point, mainly for the superior, turbo powertrain. Size-wise they match up as well.

      There is no comparison, Jetta has a much larger back seat and trunk. The B6 and even B8 A4 have tiny back seats, never understood that.
