Yes, the steering is heavy, but that's a good thing. Every time I drive another car, I'm shocked at how light the steering is and am afraid I'm going to knock it off course with my pinky. The heavy...

I used to have an Audi S3 that had a ton of "humming" road noise. It was pretty quiet over bumps, but would drone a bit on smooth roads. Certain types of pavement were louder than others. Turns out...

When you guys talk about "road noise" are you referring to the general hum that tires make rolling down the road, especially on things like concrete highways? Or are you talking about bumps, bangs,...

I recently shopped an IS 350. Huge improvement over the previous generation. Much more connected and fun to drive, especially in Sport+ mode. The engine was a letdown however, especially at lower...

I test drove a 2011 335i with a sport package and it rode great! Firm but not crashy at all - even on some pretty bad roads.

I've owned a 2006 330i and 2009 335i, each with sport packages. Both...

Yes, that's correct. The FSDs are designed to work with the stock sport suspension. Combined with regular (non-RFT) tires, they will improve the ride greatly. It's still pretty stiff and sometimes a...

I was a huge Honda fan-boy back in the 90's. I had a 89 Accord, 97 Accord, 98 Integra GS-R and an 03 RSX-S. But when I grew up and started looking at sports sedans, I moved to Audi and BMW as...

I hear a lot of people blame the poor road conditions on bad winters, salt, plows, and traffic volume. As Nordic Kat pointed out, NH and VT has decent highways. They certainly have worse winters than...

Yet another pothole!!!

A month ago, I hit a nasty pothole and scratched my rim. Although it was quite an explosion, I got lucky in that I don't think I did any mechanical damage. I got the rim touched up and was as good as...

Ride height after sitting on a jack

I'm confused. People on here are stating their opinions about why they ditched their RFTs and posting valid arguments. And that makes them snobs? If a RFT is a better performing tire, why don't some...

I don't have winter rims. I mount stock-sized winter tires on my stock rims. So there's no advantage to leaving them on longer, at least as far as protection is concerned. Good idea though!

Nadir, I can't speak for Colorado, but the roads in my area are horrendous. With RFT, I had to deal with an awful ride quality day in, day out. 365 days per year. I've been driving for 25 years now...

Agree. Two scenarios...

Option A, RFT. Pay a fortune and have crappy ride quality. Pick up a nail with RFT. Limp to service station. Save the cost of a tow truck, but be stranded for 3 days...

My daughter isn't anywhere near driving age, but I think I'd feel better with her waiting for AAA rather than her attempting to change a tire on the side of a busy interstate.
