      The smaller ones are really cheap (like (<$400). This one has HDR but no local dimming so I guess it is more like HDR-Lite™— I didn't feel like spending $1200 on the 8000-series.

      I saw those LG...

      Broke down and bought a TV for the first time in over 10 years, replacing a Sony XBR 34-inch wideacreen CRT.

      This is the first thing that really hit all my data points: .ac wifi, built-in HBO...

      Okay, I floored it leaving every light, did 6000 RPM 1-2 shifts and went 80 MPH on the highway with the A/C cranked and my MPG for the trip home dropped from the usual 39-40 to 33.

      The Focus gets a 6-speed with much better gearing.

      The moderately powered cars do suffer when driven hard. I suspect a lot of journalists get out of 6- and 8-cylinder vehicles and into one with...

      Hmm, I don't see it, either. In the configurator, it used to be in the Packages section as something like "SE EcoBoost Package" and not in the Powertrain section.

      They talk about it on the Focus...

      How in the hell do you get 18 MPG? I just looked at Fuelly and the worst tanks I ever got in my 2.3 Ranger and our 2.4/4-speed Sonata were 22 MPG and that is in 100% city traffic in 100°F+ heat.

      I have had to stop myself from letting my foot off the brake when stopped at a light on a perfectly flat road (5-speed). People will see the brake lights go dim in their peripheral vision and get on...

      That is what mine ended up being (and almost the exact same reaction from the urologist).



      Haha, I wouldn't worry about that. I have had three or four of them -- it is very clinical. They...

      And port injected.

      They do have the 2.0T in a few Lexuses and there is a new turbo family trickling out across the pond, with the 1.2T 8NR-FTS that comes in the Auris.

      More stuff coming:...

      (The only thing to be aware of in that case is that the 10/100 warranty goes away. You still get the 5/60 B2B but not the extended powertrain.)
