I don't mind front-drive cars if they're cheap and...

The new Golf is as roomy as a 3 series, at least in legroom. Shoulder/elbow room isn't affected by front vs rear drive.

Yup, it might matter to a few of us but not to the overall market.

I hope it has some of the rawness that is in the F-Type.

Jaguar hit this one out of the park. And with the supercharged V6 from the F-Type it'll be incredible.

I want one. Stick would be nice though.

+1 I'm hoping the F-Type's V6 goes into the XE, cause that engine sounds incredible for a V6.

Looking at how the Jag XF is quite a bit cheaper than a 5 series (mainly cause it comes loaded), I'm...

mine's pretty loud, and on startup it occasionally shakes the whole car like the Big Earthquake (probably water ingestion due to ethanol in the fuel). :D

The Cooper S Works is getting a version of the new 2.0L turbo w/ 230 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Sounds like the engine is almost ready for the 328i (330i).

Sure, but I think it's better overall to avoid 1st model years, rather than say, LCI's with a new engine.

Driveshaft and fuel pump, I wasnt considering those engine parts I guess. If that kind of stuff scares you, buy a Lexus.
