Love it in my 2014 28i. Comfort is perfect for everyday driving, and Sport mode is intense for the backroads. I think the base setup is pretty good, so I wouldn't say DHP is a must have, but it's...

I think Liverman was likely thinking of camber, caster, and toe, which are alignment-related and can affect handling and impact on-center feel a bit. In this case, I don't experience anything like...

I have Carbon Black / Mojave as my color combo and love it. The Mojave is beautiful - it's less bland than it looks in pictures. A kind of gray/taupe color, with contrast stitching. Looks great...

I have a 28i m-sport and love the look and thick steering wheel and sport seats, but I'd say definitely not a must-have. It is more cosmetic than anything (unless, in Canada, the suspension is...

Another vote here. Have had Safelite replace two windshields with no issues. One had an integrated rain sensor, so I insisted on OEM parts. Cost a bit more, but they sourced through the dealer and...

I'm not sure how financing through two companies would work, but they'd certainly need to know about each other because I believe both need to be listed as lien holders on the title and with the...

I agree with those that say hydroplaning has more to do with tires (tread design, tread compound, and rubber compound), car weight, speed, and depth of water than anything else. Hydroplaning...

Both are great cars, and money no object, the S4 is definitely my choice. At $56K for the S4, though, I'd start thinking about a CTS-V. What's $5K more at that point? Slippery slope. =)

Looks pretty cool. I guess I'll hold off on getting that Garmin for a bit to see how this pans out.

FWIW, my dealer was also strict about it being exactly one year (or more), and they did NOT reset the counter, so my next one will be at two years or ~ 15k miles, whichever comes first.

The stock rear 18" ZSP tires are very wide for a snow tire. You'll be giving up a fair bit in traction. The general rule is narrow is better for snows. I second the opinion that a 17" wheel/tire...
