You can special-order, like I did. I wanted the bigger motor and the 8-speed/RWD in the "base" car, and they stock nothing but AWD around here. I optioned only the blind-spot detection/auto-dimming...

It is hard to believe, but I'm not the first person here to report the issue. Apparently the way the air comes off that edge... I noticed it right-away on my first drive home with my fine new...

Whistle from Xpel PPF on mirrors - solved!

I had a pronounced whistle from the driver's mirror. Research here indicated that it was caused by the Xpel Ultimate PPF. The dealer confirmed that it went-away after the PPF was removed, and they...

And that F-sport costs $thousands, for very little, IMO, gain. And that F-sport gauge is... well, let's just say that I don't get the appeal. The regular gauges are better than the gimmickry.

The GS is a bit softer and less sporty. If that's what you're looking for... But it's not for me.

I have them. They look good. It improves on the slab-sided look of the IS (and most cars these days).

Comparing the non-F IS and GS, and IS is way better, for me. Very nice ride quality (much softer than my old E46 BMW with Sport suspension) yet still quite-capable handling makes it a great...

To each his own, but have you ever driven an E92 M3? The sound and fury of that M V8, and that 7-speed dual-clutch, so eager to downshift... That's a special car.

Subs in the trunk are horrible. I sound comes through the rear seats, which colors it badly. If you do this, I recommend a very low cross-over frequency, like 75 Hz.

Do you have a cite for that claim? I've read a lot of car mags over the years, and never any claim of any car doing that.

How many sedans are "more exiting"? An M3, sure, and maybe a few others, all that cost much more. Any car under $50k is going to have significant compromises.

Indeed. Why the heck would anyone who is worried about engine mods take the 250 over the 350?

I don't know about that. On my BMW E46 I switched to aftermarket low-dust pads and they were also *much* easier on the disks. The stock pads/disks were quite dirty and did not last long.

I'm going to that, when I get mine in a couple weeks, but only the front couple feet. Full coverage is twice as much $$.

"Fine" is a matter of opinion. Even "normal" modern brakes can be quite dusty.

Well, "literally no torque" is simply not correct. It is a "cammy" engine, as it must be to get 306 HP out of 3.5L NA. It's a trade-off, and won't please everyone.

As for "slow downshifts",...

It comes loaded for that, though. It's not more expensive than the IS350, similarly equipped.

When that 20 year old car is an M5, most definitely. And getting more power per dollar is no surprise, if you're willing to start with a cheap FWD car like the Cobalt SS.

Time passes, and engines...

Make that "dustier" brake pads. You can keep them. Nothing else on your list is compelling, IMO.

They are tied to the same option package. You get one, you get the other.

One of the few options that I spec'ed, trying to keep my IS350 around $40k.

For about $45k, or about $70k in today's dollars. And that without nav, 10 airbags, etc, etc.
