I might have bought an S3, or even a Golf GTI (instead of my IS350) but could not bring myself to buy a VW/Audi product, for fear of reliability problems. Maybe they are OK, now.

The IS350 is a...

I ordered my RWD and got about $2k off of sticker. I really didn't want the AWD, and losing the 8-speed was a deal-breaker. I'd rather swap tires and wheels Spring and Fall, like I've been doing...

It seems like all one would need to buy are the blank sensors, and then a tire shop could clone them to the ID's of the stock sensors?

I'm a thin guy, and bought the non-F 350. I find it almost miraculous that they built a car where the standard seats actually hold me place and don't let me slide all over the place. With BMW I...

I find that difficult to believe, that the car makers would have new modern systems that are easily defeated.

Compared to 50% more power and the cool 8-speed tranny? You're cracked.

Is the VT30 needed, or does the Quickset do all that is needed. Prices add-up, if you need both!

I've been getting around 23 MPG in my brand-new IS350, less than 1000 miles on the ODO. Mixed driving.

I've been driving a RWD BMW for years, with no problems. The key is swapping wheels/tires, so you have real Winter tires, not all-seasons.

Not all all-seasons, are the same, BTW. The ones that...

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...

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.

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.
