      Things I miss from my 08' 335i

      -REST mode... thanks to the electric water pump it was able to keep the cabin warm for 10-15 mins in the cooler weather, when you popped in for a coffee or just had...
    2. Wow... the Japanese have an inherent advantage?...

      Wow... the Japanese have an inherent advantage? what is this, 1976? VW has used Panasonic radio's for years... the radio in my 93' Volvo... lot of Mitsubishi stamps on that thing.

      As for...

      IIRC the Vue was based on some Opel CUV, and the Chevy version was produced to amortize costs, due to the fact that the Saturn run/engineering for the NA market had not been paid down... the main...

      BLIS is sensitive... it can see posts, walls of bridges, pools of standing water etc... it's almost totally useless in rain in some cars. The system in my Mazda is newer/better than the camera based...

      Just give it 6 more months for production to really ramp up, and lot inventory to build. It's a GM truck... it will be good, and it will go on sale at some point! ;)

      I know a few guys who use them as work/country property beaters... lots of miles, lots of mechanical neglect, lots of abuse.

      They take it all in stride and keep on going. There are likely some...

      Makes sense. Toyota builds their only Lexus product that isn't made in Japan in Ontario. So they know the quality is top notch here. Costs are getting too high for low-dollar cars to be made in...

      The older body GMX211 Impala is a car built very cheaply for how large it is... it ends up being quite uncomfortable, and has quite a few annoying traits. Like a suspension that feels firm/sporty......

      Don't do it for practicality, the E90 isn't an impractical car at all... In fact the Focus is pretty impractical for its class.

      I had a Golf Mk6 and went to an E90 335i. Had both for two years......

      I wouldn't care if I was Honda either... Honda's are good to drive, Nissan's generally aren't. I can't actually figure out why so many people buy them.

      I agree. While I was too young to drive in the 80s/90s period, it produced some great cars that had a nice blend of performance, great practicality (same can't be said, trunk space is way down on a...

      I always thought the 5-7MPG large trucks get was damn impressive, considering the weight. 12 is mind blowing... some pickup trucks scrape by with 14mpg real world. I've driven cube vans that only get...

      A 911 is my realistic dream car. New they start at around what I make per year, nicely loaded... quite a bit more.

      My fiancee and I plan to save for one, but go used/well maintained. Makes no...

      Golf

      TDI engine
      Upgraded sound system
      Cloth interior
      Xenon/adaptive lighting

      One very nice car.

      I'll consider a Golf wagon as my next car. Hope they bring AWD tho.

      You might find the refinement is a bit lacking compared with your Infiniti.

      More like an output module that doesn't see enough load on it.

      You likely need to use resistors with the LED's like they do with signal lamp conversions. LEDs have very high resistance (hence the...

      Most people who can afford a mid-size end up in an AWD cross over here... because they make a lot more sense. The Venza was a good idea (Camry wagon with AWD) that resonated with Canadian buyers......
