Well, the ones with a "star" are absolute pieces of garbage, so if true, I'd hate to see how non-star Eagle POS LS perform!

I've never heard anything, though.

The Bluetooth Audio can be funky.

I had an LG G2 and could not get Spotify to work via BT. Regular audio and Pandora worked.

I now have the G3, and all audio apps work.

The F10 is a big car. What do you do in your backseat that requires so much room?? :banana:

I actually prefer a door lock switch on the door, I'll take the security risk. If somebody wants to get into my car, they're going to figure out a way.

Payment will be the same (as one dealership offered), or slightly higher (as...

Haha, you're right.

I would agree -- the 5 interior design is a few notches above the 4, especially with that slash through the dash on the passenger side. I hate that so much.

Has anybody gone from a 5 > 435 GC? Impressions wanted, if so.

Strongly thinking about doing this change.

I love the lines of the 4GC. And the sportier drive/feel.

Have had 5s since 2008.

I maybe have people ride in the back seat 7-10x/year.

So...

You need to drive the 335.

I've spent a lot of time in a 6MT, and it's a lot of fun. A 550 can rocket from 80-100 a little faster, but zipping around town, the 550 is a snooze compared to go-kart...

Tempted to light this car on fire and then order a new one w/ summer tires. :)

Or better yet, get a car with a spare so I don't have to deal with these absurd RFTs!

What body style is the 335? If it's the F30, that has more creature comforts than the E60.

Make no mistake, though, the 3 is noticeably less roomy than the E60, even if paper suggests otherwise.

New Eagle LS2s are worth a little more than a piece of chewed up bubble gum.

Of course, with insurance, keep on ordering them.
