      I don't get it either, Dave. But I suspect I'm the old man yelling at the cloud on this one.

      I like the side profile of the new coupe, but the nose/tail is just way overdone for my taste,...

      I bought a Yoga 2 Pro.

      +:
      -Amazing screen. One of the highest resolution screens on the market, hands down.
      -Lightweight.
      -Fast enough for me with the i7 proc & SSD
      -Touch screen seems...

      These were, what, 190hp in stock form?

      So how is this better than an MR2 turbo, even in stock form?

      I like V6's, and this is definitely a nice one in Camry/Sienna/etc use. But I'm puzzled as to...

      As stated, it sounds like noisy HLA's. My Miata will sound like that on certain cold starts.

      I'd DEFFINITELY change the oil post-HG replacement before running the car any further. I'd probably...

      I don't care what it looks like outside.

      I just want to crawl into that driver's seat, listen to the B&W audio system, and never leave. (OK, for potty breaks. Maybe.)

      I've never wanted a muscle car.

      I've never, ever found the Challenger interesting.

      But this...this is so over the top nuts. I don't understand how it's compelling to almost any car enthusiast.

      Valid points both.

      Saturday was definitely not ideal dyno weather. I heard the guy mention how hot the intercooler was in the video.

      Good lord. I cannot imagine. Use only on the longest straights.

      That's like the 1200hp BMW claimed to get out of the M10 motors. How the hell, I haven't the faintest.

      I cannot believe that instrument of Satan is only 337whp.

      Seriously, people. WOT in 3rd gear is like Warp 9. One moment I was :cool:, then Shannon went WOT and I was :eek:.

      More impressive to me is that the MkVII Golf R is setting such a benchmark for the MQB chassis cars. That is in significant contrast to the MkVI Golf R and platform mates.

      This review just makes...

      I liked the Mk7. In stock form, it's not enough to get me out of my Mk6 (which says a lot about the Mk6). I look forward to driving a Golf R, though, as the Mk7 R is getting great reviews in the UK...
