There was a time I would have said the same thing, but I think the Grand Cherokee is a standout product that doesn't have a typical "american" feel. I think it feels quite premium and Germanic in...

Congrats SLegacy! I think the new WRX is an amazing new platform. Rock solid with improved dynamics, and a good bump in interior materials. Still not GTI level, but much improved over the outgoing...

Bitkahuna, I think you and GSteg are correct that there's a trade off at low speeds and initial start off with DCT's. There's a lot of slippage and delay, even with the VW units, and right now a huge...

I agree with you the EVO, but there are technically more Mitsubishi dealers(~386) than Audi (~280) in the United States.

EVO is not a daily driver, super harsh ride that transmits everything. Steering wheel in my opinion was hard as a rock even though it's technically leather wrapped. Cheap interior materials. From a...

Depends on what your lease paperwork allows for. You could list it on sites like swapalease etc and try to get someone to take it over. Or, you could get a trade in/sell bid on it and see how it...

It's always liters per 100 km. Just use some logic, would it make sense that a car uses 16.6 imperial gallons, which is nearly 20 U.S. gallons, to drive just 100 km, or 62 miles? Sequoia luckily is...

Not collaborative, automakers often lend each other vehicles for evaluation/study. Example, Lexus loaned Jaguar an LS F Sport last year in exchange for the F-Type convertible (coupe wasn't out yet)....

Not really the same type of black c-pillar treatment as the Camry. The Camry's is on the pillar itself, the XE is still part of the overall door.

I think the door panels might look a little flat in the pictures, but it looks like they're stitched leather, so I don't think they'll be cheap feeling or looking in person. Doesn't have the wavy...

OP mentioned cosmetic looks, so I was commenting on mostly appearance. I agree that the E9X had a good feeling steering wheel, but even then sometimes it could feel a bit too thick all around. The...

E9X wheel's spokes just...

Definitely not the case with the latest M3/M4. The amount of lightweighting they did is intensive and very impressive, and likely part of the reason for the high price of the car.

Painted black mirrors and door handles on black cars don't look "cheap" This is not going to look anything like grained, unpainted plastic. Even from people who drive past it.

I don't think they'll look "unpainted" as the cheap mold-in-black plastic base pieces that you're trying to liken them to. They'll have a nice metallic/glossy finish, so it won't come off as...
