Of course you are gonna see more 2IS. They were in the market since 2006. 3IS came out in 2013 as 2014 MY.

335i does fly no doubt about that but compared to NA throttle response, there is discernable turbo lag. Not saying it is major but it is there. Yes bmw made improvements going twin scroll turbo (one...

I am not sure if it is entirely correct to say more sales = more people participate. Sure the more number of people drive the cars the odds are the participation is likely to go up as well, but that...

Are you saying you are going to install a supercharger on your IS350 F-Sport? If so and assuming you are successful, you are really breaking all the records here. I have yet to hear anybody to boost...

Given 200t has a turbo one may wonder if a third party ECU tune becomes available in the near future. I would be very curious to see what kind of gains the tune will bring. Usually FI engines are mod...

I thought new 2016 GS350 will have 313hp (not 311). This is healthy 7hp and 3ft/lb increase lol. Despite the fact that Toyota's 2GR-FSE engine has been in the market for really long time now, it is...

It all depends who is the customer. Some customers hate negotiating because of many different reasons. So for them the key is not to overpay. So if Lexus right off the bat can offer reasonably...

Are you saying that the reason why BMW frequently brakes down is because it reaches 30+ mpg? You do realize that EPA estimated mpg is an ESTIMATE. The biggest single factor of MPG is the driver's...
