For those who like loud exhaust, are you doing it for yourself or trying to impress the neighborhood?

Noise used to mean something. It would equate to speed and power. It is one thing to be noisy and fast. It is another to make a bunch of noise and be slow (or slower than the alternative).

I am curious to know how you managed to get 53,000 miles on one set of tires? Sounds impossible. In any event, on my 2012 I went with the Continentals non run flats and was happy. I did have some...

I believe the new 2016 has this collision feature. Does that make it a nanny car? Who cares what you call it, if it saves a collision why not. If you are a perfect driver, nothing lost.
