Say what? The "non Fsport IS" has the narrowest seats that you're going to find in a "standard" 4-door sedan. I'm very thin, and the tight bolstering keeps me in place quite well. With BMW, you...

No, it stays in the gear you want. At least the 8-speed does. Unless you redline it or come to a stop.

Every 10,000 with synthetic is fine. The old 3,000 miles BS is obsolete nonsense. On my BMW, I let the computer tell me, and it was well over 10,000 miles.

Some corrections need to be made to the above. You will not pay "quite a premium" to get a RWD car. The RWD car costs less. Period. If any dealer wants to charge you MORE to get RWD, find another...

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...

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

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...
