There are many reasons a reduced power error could occur, and a bad HPFP is merely one of them (and at this point, a pretty unlikely one). It could be a bad O2 sensor, inability of the ECU to...

It depends on your living and driving situation. If, for example, you live on a hill and don't have another car to drive, you should get snow tires. If you don't have to drive or don't live on top...

The OEM sport package uses 225/40R18 tires on 18x8 wheels front and 255/35 on 18x8.5 wheels rear. 225/45R18 fronts would be too tall.

No problems for me. The windows will occasionally ice up so that they can't do the roll-down thing when you open the door like Zooks describes. Once the ice melts though, opening and closing the...

I'm absolutely interested in a diesel. The "fun" side of me would prefer the 30d, while the "frugal" side would prefer the 20d (or perhaps the 23d).

It appears that you have to order the M Sport package to get the sport seats. Any chance they'll be available as a standalone option or in combination with another package?
