I've been driving MT cars most of my life. I'm pretty good at it. There is no way that a modern ZF 8AT will lose to a 6MT. And the links you provide show BMW's claimed times not real world car...

They are a pain. My son will soon enter kindergarten and eventually will have to belt himself in as the queue to drop him off does not allow for the parents to get out of the car. I can barely belt...

Of course but you are talking about the STI version of the WRX. A loaded non STI WRX with leather and nav package is under $35K. A comparable 328i is at least another $10K.

Another option is when your current tires become too worn, buy used OEM RFT's on eBay. They are readily available from verified sellers at prices far below new.

I don't think this is codeable. This (and the brake in an AT car) are required by government regulation.

100% agree.

I have CR on my Mineral Gray 2014 Sport Line and love it. No red dash which IMO is overkill. CR is very rare though. Most buyers are conservative and are fine with the black interior....

I guess I don't understand where you are coming from much of the time. You are getting a terrific new car yet most of your posts are negative towards the brand.

Huh? I have not found my BMW's to be "persnickity". You are confusing forum posts with the larger reality. And parts wear on all cars.

Only issue was a problem from the factory with the plugs in the console not working right. They replaced the whole unit. Other than that, only routine maintenance.

He already has a Sport Line so other than trim we are talking about the body kit and the steering wheel. And the wheels if he wants.
