Re: Porsche builds brand new 993 Turbo S for 70th Anniversary

Looks great, but hideous color. Porsche is getting awfully cynical with these special editions though.

If we get another RDX, which is likely, it will probably be the regular version

Re: What was the last car that you "Raved?"

Technically, I raved lots of cars at the BMW M track days. M3/M4 were among my least favorites. I liked the new M5 a lot.

Re: BMW 3er (G20) 2019 *Now with First Drives*

I think the F30 335/340 is much better than the F30 328i, but neither handle as well as the E90. My E90 328i was much more of a driver's car than the F30 IMO.

Re: BMW 3er (G20) 2019 *Now with First Drives*

Do an extended test drive first. I think you will find that it is absolutely woeful to drive. Awful steering. Boring as heck. Engine does not rev worth a damn, and sounds like a lawnmower.

I...

Re: C&D Road Test: 2019 Genesis G70 3.3T (3-series Competitor)

Front end is hideous, depreciation will be shocking, but sure, why not.

Re: BMW 3er (G20) 2019 *Now with First Drives*

Agreed. They would sell a TON more M3's if they were AWD in the northeast. Heck, i might even get back to being an M3 driver*

but doubt it...

Re: BMW 3er (G20) 2019 *Now with First Drives*

Isn't it auto only now, inasmuch as it is only xdrive going forward and the xdrive now does not have a manual option, right?

I just think the take rate on RWD and manual is so low. I know here...

Re: BMW 3er (G20) 2019 *Now with First Drives*

It was awesome.

Drag race was M4 cab, X3 40i, X6 M, and M5

Lead follow was M3 and M4 (no M2 this year they said because the non-ceramic brakes are not good.)

Auto X was M2.

Still not a...

Re: BMW 3er (G20) 2019 *Now with First Drives*

Thanks. Just did the M Track days and I like the 2 series. That 240i engine has more than enough power. We drag raced the X3 with that engine, I think, and it was fast.

Also got to drag the new...

Re: BMW 3er (G20) 2019 *Now with First Drives*

I still have over a year left on my R but was thinking about this for my next DD.

Anyone have any opinion on the M240 xdrive? Is it better than the 3 series?

Re: 30th Anniversary of the Porsche 964

Never liked the styling on this car, don't get all the fuss about it. I think the 993 looks far better, and so does the 997.

Maybe it drives like God's chariot, but it ought to given the prices...

true, but to be fair, much as I loved the ITR, that wing was pretty obnoxious.

Re: My M5 deaded itself today

F this car and BMW for producing such garbage. Ditto the E90, albeit to a lesser extent. There is no excuse for catastrophic engine failure in this day in age.

If I upgrade from a Miata, that's what i would upgrade to. Everything Porsche is expensive though.
