Again what does this have to do with the ATS? Answer is nothing. By this logic then BMW brand has a horrid morality track record for their involvement during the WWII era. Lets go back to reality now...

You can't go wrong with either one. I also like the new GTI and the WRX but I would like something more grown up and RWD like the ATS or F30. Each one has its pros and cons. I am also looking at both...

I think maintenance is very important but so is engineering. I am not very kind to my 328 and it has treated me very well so far. I was very kind to my brand new turbo Jetta and it was an abomination...

The transmission is actually still pretty good but obviously the new 8 speed will be much better. A simple tune makes a big difference. Very quick and sharp shifts, the 3.6 sounds fantastic and puts...

IMHO if maintenance is a concern for you I would not consider either one. Look for something NA with a proven engine, like the upcoming 3.5 TLX or the Q50. I would stay away from turbo cars in...

Whatever makes you feel better but just don't try to race that POS in your track tuned M3 at the track because you will most certainly lose.

Well I guess it is a POS that embarasses track focused BMW M cars at the track...and it does it for nearly half the price.

It was a typo. I was referring to the 1LE package. It doesn't change anything in that post. It does cost under 40K and beats all the M cars and the 911 GT3 at the VIR.

Even as an avid Top Gear fan I'll take the VIR results over this anytime and that SS did not have the track package. Look at the VIR times between the 09 SS and 1LE.

403-466 lbs for the LS3 (depending on the application) and 445 lbs for the S65 just for comparison (M3 V8 which is 33lbs less than the S54 E46 I6 M3).

Probably the weight difference and the auto transmission make the difference but the LS3 is still such a gem.

By this logic cars like the Civic Si and 10's of other econoboxes that are lighter can easily outhandle the F30 around tight cones.

Agreed, but performance wise these cars are not even remotely close. It is borderline comical to compare the two (as far as performance goes).
