      I'm with you.

      I just did a 3500 mile road trip. No DVD's.

      From the review you posted...

      Other than the drivetrain, they seemed pretty "meh" about the drive. They call it a "ball of mush" around the corners. Personally I think the FWD A3 1.8T and base...

      The way it snapped, he's super lucky it stayed on the ground. :eek:

      It's not difficult, but it certainly is more time consuming than a "normal" car due to the ride height, underbody panels, and dry sump lubrication system.

      The filter is actually easy to access.

      For the past year, the R8 has has DSG, so not on those.

      Possibly on an older R8 with R-tropic / e-gear. The R8's have smoother software that seems more clutch friendly.

      He wasn't trying to be funny. It was a thorough and detailed review. :confused:

      That video sucked. :thumbdown:

      I thoroughly enjoyed your Husqvarna review though. :thumbup:

      I also cut higher, I never considered to adjust my anti-scalp wheels downward on my Toro. I'm...

      I see why people get R8's. It's the same damn car and it costs a grand to service from new to 55k miles. All you pay for (above that) is brakes and tires.

      All of this.

      The issue is that no automaker is likely to discuss "targeted marketing" for obvious reasons. People will get butthurt. People don't like stereotypes. So information on paper isn't readily...

      You're assuming that's my only "proof".

      I've had multiple people involved with marketing these products confirm the same. It's no secret, especially if you break down what and how they are trying...

      Nice man. :thumbup:

      I had a lot of fun last year doing a mile event. I just looked up my split and I was just over 141 mph (227 km/h) at the half mile. I was definitely average at best...

      As long as you're happy, that's all that matters. :beer:

      When you take delivery, do they set the satellite radio to HAIR NATION or do you have to do that yourself? :laugh:

      Let's not get carried away. It isn't a Viper or something. In everything short of SRT/Hellcat trim, it's an open differential under performing (for the HP it has) underbraked no-so-great handling...

      I could see a bit of both being true. Also this type of advertisement (calling out competitor) isn't legal in much of Europe AFAIK, so Sergio needs to get his licks in where he can.

      I'd say that aligns pretty well with the young/trendy/scenester GTI demographic. Wouldn't you say?

      I can't recall the GTI ever trying to position itself as sophisticated/high class.

      That's not bad. I have a 240V charger in my garage. I considered a Leaf, but just can't stomach the ugly.

      My wife has already stated she won't touch an electric car though. She has seen me...
