      They are disposable family vehicles. What were you expecting? Enthusiast owned CRVs?

      Also, increasing your price range will help you in your search.

      What is your price range and type of...

      I actually cringed when I saw it. It's not what I was expecting from Aston Martin.

      The Dart? Fiat 500? Since they are all classified as passenger cars (ie not light duty trucks), they are all averaged together. I'm betting they did the math that if they sell a lot of the small cars...

      Dynomometers measure torque, while HP is derived from that and engine RPM, so lets stay in terms of torque. Torque is a twisting motion of a force around an axis. The longer the distance the force is...

      You are asking people to give you examples of a 2000-2005 AWD BMW with a manual. So there's the 5-Series, and the 3-Series, X3, and X5.

      I'd say pick one of those.

      True, but fuel economy is averaged over the cars sold. So selling a relative few number of cars that get low mileage isn't a big deal when you have a volume seller that gets great gas mileage. Does...

      Hub Horsepower and Wheel Horsepower (actually, torque, since that's what dynomometers actually measure) measure the same thing. There are no additional loses between the hub and the wheel. The...

      It seems like that 20" is base and you have the option of 21" wheels (As least on an RS7). Looking at the picture of the wheel/rotor, I'm not sure that a 19" wheel would clear the brake caliper.

      That was "Rob."

      Note the period in the username. This "Rob" is a totally different guy.

      Yes. Over the course of several months with my SVT Focus. I took it in to the dealer to get a simple thing fixed (a clutch pin), and over the course of 8 months I had the car back in there because...

      This is what I was going to say. I really like the look, but an inch or two smaller than pictured would be ideal.

      I would say yes, it's dangerous. The really old tires would get you to the corner store and back, but light, UV, and atmospheric degradation have taken their toll. I wouldn't want to drive at highway...

      This happens to me when people see what I drive (either my NA Miata or my BRZ). Just because I put effort into making and keeping my cars looking nice doesn't mean I spent a lot of money on them. No...

      That's a pretty bad strategy though, for pretty much any enthusiast car. If it's underpowered to begin with people are going to cross it off their lists, forget about it, and buy something else.
