Diesel rules!!!! Significantly better fuel economy, better in gear accleration, stronger torque? What is not to love? The car is not a sports car anyway, it is a GT. It would be 3000lbs if it was...

I think the Caterham is more appealing; i like the classic look over the F1'ish body of the Atom. Good vehicle though, i hesitate to call something with no body a "car"

I did mention it a few months ago and i was just seeing if anyone had done such a thing. Weight reduction is not an outrageous thing to question on a forum. Just curious if anyone had tried to pull...

The only people who are the BMW demographic are those that keep their BMWs. I got my 335. Didn't like it (too refined, too much motor and not enough fun). Sold my BMW and looking for another...

Depends on the track. Something twisty and the Elise will walk. Long straightaways and the extra power of the 135 will make it much closer. The new supercharged Elise is most likely beyond the...

Get the lotus and a used beater for daily driving. No compromises then. You can get good gas mileage/something cheap for the commute (used Civic/Sentra/Cavalier/etc)

X6 = overly expensive answer to a question no one asked.

Drove one while car was in service. At 13k off it isn't a bad deal. At full sticker it is a joke. The car had an auto and it was decently powerful but not that great of mileage. I honestly don't...

I do like the 1 series if it didn't look like the one series or didn't cost like a BMW. I was interested in the one series ever since a mate ordered one; just not convinced it is for me. I merely...

So I am stupid for saying the backseat of a 4 seater is too small? If you are paying 48k for a convertible with a backseat it makes sense to be able to use it. Why not just...

That is another cheap entry level car. The X3 is horrifically overpriced; more for those who want the X5 but can't afford it. You would be better served in a CR-V than an X3.

No but there are bigger difference between the 5 and 3 and the 3 and 1. Larger price differences and different appeal. Both 3 and 1 appeal to sporty drivers and hence the pissing contests.
