      184 is likely a misprint. Up in Canada we have the exact same engine and our Golf 1.8T auto and stick are rated at 184ft/lbs of tq, which is a misprint. It makes the same 200 as the USA model. ...

      Mine is new (less than 5000 miles on it), and I average ~ 13-14mpg all city driving so far though. My best tank was 15.5 mpg just before it got colder and where I live I remote start it a lot to...

      I could find my paper work to scan it in. Mine was a 2013 STI base and I got $1,800 off and 1% lower lease rate because that was my 5th Subaru at the time.
      If I build one right now with those same...

      I break all my new cars in by driving them normally. Including trips to redline once in a while, once car is fully warmed up.

      VRR - Etch: 229. I thought this went away in the mid 2000s haha. Just say you don't want etch and they can't charge you for it, even if it's on the car. Tell them you don't care if your car is...

      I leased a 2013 STI sedan for 477/month nothing down in Calgary. Granted that was a base sedan. I would have a hard time paying over $600/month even on the sport tech STI

      agree 100%. Looks so bland IMO. Even in higher specs I think the previous exterior was better. Interior is way better though on the new model.

      I had an STI and IMO that engine is one of its weak points. They need a new engine in the STI, period. Not very flexible, super bad on gas, many of them fail stock or modded. Subaru has done all...

      When I go on VW.ca and build a 4 door GTI with leather, nav and add 2295 for DCC (I think that's how much it is) I get 37k. So only about a 3K difference for a GTI that's equipped the same way.

      What about test driving a mkvii Golf 1.8T? Regular gas, still fun with 200tq down low in the rev range, decent interior.

      I said faster as in just acceleration.

      Until RS is tested I think people are getting ahead of themselves. STI for example (pre 2015) had LSDs front and back and handled poorly compared to the...

      I don't think it's hilariously outclassed as he put it, but latest Golf has won a bunch of awards and I myself would have a very hard time picking a Focus over a Golf in that segment. Same with GTI...

      I don't like the front. In fact I think the refreshed focus ST front looks better

      How do you figure? I quickly scanned the article and saw no mention of real LSDs, just electronic brake based tq vectoring. STI has LSD front and back doesn't it?

      I liked the BMW I6 so much I'm on my 4th one. This is the oldest one too, previous ones were all E90.

      First 2 kids: 2009 Forester
      3rd kid we got a 2012 Odyssey.

      Odyssey will stay until kids are older, which leaves me free to cycle through vehicles that are not as kid friendly.

      My first V8 but it's a truck. I get around 13-14 mpg around town. :eek:

      Wouldn't mind trying out a V8 sedan at some point in the future.
