      I ended up getting the Burley D'lite today at REI. Didn't think I'd be using the extra features of the Thule, and it was $100 more to get the bike kit (the Thule comes standard as a stroller).

      In my experience they work OK if your battery just needs a few more volts to start but if it's really low or completely dead it won't help.

      what did you end up going with? looking at the burley d'lite or thule chariot?

      All cars for sale in the US have to be able to run on 87 but that doesn't mean they should. They don't even have the equivalent of 87 aki in Europe, their regular is 95 Ron which is more like 91...

      So are you saying cargo hatch volume specs changed at some point? Positive when I had my mk5 it was only 12 cu ft or so, they didn't start reporting the larger #s until the MK7.

      Either way, it's...

      The Golf cargo room specs are a lie. Somehow they went from 12 cu. Ft in the mk5 and Mk6 to almost double in the MK7 (22 I believe) but the reality is it's nowhere near that big. I've had both and...

      Yes the Lexus 2.0T is a turd. I think it actually puts out less power than it's rated for while the competition is doing the opposite.

      Where are you located OP? You should be able to find a lightly used R in your price range.

      I wouldn't settle for the GTI with the thought you would need to tune it to make it what you want. ...

      Definitely the G! That RWD 6MT sedan will be a unicorn in a few years. They and the TL 6MT are both equally rare around here.

      I love the interior of the TL but I don't know if I could stand to...

      I can't seem to find a dynojet of a C450 to compare with the red sport. All the dynos I can find are a dyno dynamics which read extremely low. But IIRC the C43 traps something like 107-108 in the...

      Did not really consider them. They're just a bit too flashy and obnoxious for my tastes. Also, adding any options to the Benz quickly makes it a $60k car and the lease would have easily been 100+...

      Thanks! I might try that. I've also been looking into the Android modules you can get for the lower screen, really cool stuff!

      Dealer did not have any RWD versions. It seems that above NC, Infiniti doesn't send many RWD cars. I remember when shopping for my previous G37 years ago it was almost impossible to find a Sport...

      TTAC had one of the more thorough reviews of this car, and I think their summary describes the car nicely:

      "The BMW 340i will*feel more refined,*more polished and will handle better from the...

      Probably just bolt ons for now, but it looks like those are adding 20-30whp, so I'd be very happy with that. The turbos are rather small and Infiniti is apparently already pushing them hard in the...

      Ditto. Did not know there were deals to be had on these.

      Nice car. There you go trumping my new purchase. [emoji14]

      Yep almost 400whp with just a cat back and the lower downpipes.

      I would a love lighter Z with this motor and a DCT they are rumoured to have in the works.

      I don't know why they didn't bring over the VLSD from the G37 for the RWD models, but I'm sure they'll be an aftermarket option (if there's not one already). With the AWD version, it's not really...

      I covered both of those things in my post. The steering isn't old G37 hydraulic good, but the electric assist is fine. All the reviews online of this car had the DAS (drive by wire), which most...

      Yea, I've read that. Apparently larger aftermarket turbos will be tough, especially since they are direct into the manifold/heads (although this is common on newer turbo cars). Not impossible, but...
