Pfffff.

We have to heat the house anyway here 2/3 of the year.

And we use electricity to keep the house above 70 deg F.

Another false economy (like diesels). ;):angel:

Inefficient? How come. When the heated drying element is not on, it is like night and day.

Spots everywhere.

I *want* an heated drying element, period.

If you start saving 5000$ per year at 18 and STOP at 26, you will have more money at 65 than the guy who starts at 27 and stops at 65.

1. No, you are supposed to add 1 litre at a time. It is even written on the display.

2. I don't think that you'll have any problem, but LL-01 oil is expected.

Yet it has still a better power-to-weight ratio than the 320i, the 320i being only "worse".

They don't drop clutch for the 5-60mph neither brake torque; it is from idle or so. Otherwise it would kill the purpose of it.

TSX < > Accord.

The TSX had very low torque to start with, at 163lbs-ft and at 4500rpm.

The 2013+ Accord is a different story. It is quite torquey for its class and has more flexibility ...

My car has been taking 1 litre of oil every 2000 miles since new. I wouldn't be so concerned. Check for leaks anyway. Specially around valve cover and oil filter housing.

Well... they don't!

Accord 5-60mph 6.9s
320i 5-60mph 7.7s

That's a significant difference in my book. According to most people's little torque theory, it should be the contrary.

I don't know what that means. But forced induction doesn't make a quicker 5-60mph than an Accord 2.4 when the little theory and mislead numbers off this chart suggest that it should have.

Well if you look at the 328i N20 chart with +33.3% power, they claim about the same level at 3000rpm.

So yes, something is wrong here.

Something is obviously wrong here. I doubt that the 320i N20 is simply a castrated of a 328i N20 over X rpm and the above chart doesn't say that. Anyway, if torque curve was everything, then the...
