      Well, a stock wrx is not fast at speed so your frame of reference is limited. And you guys can't be serious, 80 is fast? Traffic down the turnpike is a steady 80 every day.

      I think if you guys had...

      You are right technically. But, think about the average driver. Very few people have any idea how to properly control a car driving the mall, let alone in an emergency situation.
    4. I can't see what the Subaru does better other...

      I can't see what the Subaru does better other than extreme circumstances where its better AWD system would be beneficial. For 99.9% of the real world situations, the CRV is a better car.

      And I...

      This thread makes my head hurt. How is this apples to oranges? WTF are people smoking around here. High performance versions of economy cars, AWD, more power etc.. Same idea.

      Love the quote on page one saying cops can't do anything because you can't prove its the same driver. Can't make this **** up.Gotta love our justice system and b.s. lawyers.

      I know I'm not the...

      Most of those happen even with a stock 335. :P

      Although its funny with just the factory sport package I've been denied service at 3 separate service stations over the years. It looks very low...

      Pump gas is crap either way.

      The world of E85 changed everything for me when it comes to fuel and made me realize what a night and day difference it is compared to pump gas.

      It's in your head...
    9. If the logic is to prevent blockage of airflow,...

      If the logic is to prevent blockage of airflow, the car is probably slow anyway and again the owner is trying too hard. Most cars in the real world 99.9% of the time will not be affected by a...

      It's a fad, mainly for kids under thirty. No offense meant of course to those who have it but to me it just screams you're trying too hard.

      People buy high 30k impreza stis, what's the difference? This car is practically just as fast and way more refined.
    12. If the idea is keeping the kid safe, driving any...

      If the idea is keeping the kid safe, driving any car with high performance summers below 40 degrees is not smart.

      4WD or not, get proper tires for the temperature.

      I don't think the drivetrain...

      That was one review, by Edmund nonetheless stop summarizing it as gospel. There have been several other magazine tests/reviews (C&D Lightning lap for example) where the 335i beat an Evo around the...

      $2,500 a year in maintenance is highly exaggerated. The potential issues are noted above, and somewhat accurate but $2,500 a year is nuts. No way in hell.

      If it was that much, I sure as hell...

      If you don't let the reliability hype train derail you, the 135/335's drive really well. The I6 is smooth as silk, and with a few mods the 135/335i is about as fast as a stock Corvette, low 12's...

      It doesn't tell me all I need to know because some people are smart enough to correlate trap speeds, HP and weight into a meaningful pattern. Not a precise 100% accurate pattern because certainly...

      Guess? They are not reporting the number as they are. That's the point. Typical over reaction and exaggeration to try and prove a point.

      I know weight comes into play. I am not saying to show the...

      I see your point, sort of, but 6 MPH trap speed difference is not close and is very noticeable. Also, with adaptive suspension the M4 is very comfortable and its frankly ridiculous to say it wouldn't...

      If I was in the market I would be all over this. Very clean for a 15 year old car in the NE.

      Love the color, classic BMW in every way.

      If you're not getting a sports package which includes wider wheels, sport seats and sports suspension the car isn't worth it. I highly recommend against Awd on an e90 for these reasons. Rwd e90s are...
