Surprising Test Drive: 2013 Cadillac ATS

Anyone else driven the ATS? On a lark, my wife and I went out looking for one to test today. It's the first time either of us has ever gotten behind the wheel of a Caddy. The dealer we went to only...

You're going to love the 135. What a great car. I wish they'd bring the M135 hatch here-that would be the car we would buy in a heartbeat.

I believe that the AWD in the S4 is actually biased to the rear tires. And totally agree that it feels more planted on the highway than the F30 335. There are a lot of "objective" reasons that the S4...

Yeah, I think that's what both me and my wife feel as well. Actually, she said after driving the S4 that while the speedo told her she was going fast, she didn't like the combination of "push" from...

Great photo, Mike.

As for the feel of AWD, I think I mentioned that could be a possible reason why the S4 left me feeling ambivalent. I love the feel of RWD and now that I live in California,...

I have driven the 328i. Found one with 6MT and M-Sport w/ DHP a couple of weeks ago and it was the first F30 I drove. Fantastic car. I found it much more lively feeling and while it doesn't pull like...

I actually find the quality of materials in the B8.5 S4 really excellent. In fact, I actually thought it was nicer than the interior in an A6 that the dealer gave us a ride in (the S4 was not located...

The ATS is an interesting car. I like that they kept the weight pegged to that of the E46 M3, since that's the car I drive. I don't even mind the styling that much. My wife is a different story....

All that eye rolling must be affecting how you see the sequence of events that I've related.

Read my review—I drove the S4 before the 335. The S4 only felt "wrong" to me AFTER I got in the 335.

Thanks for the replies. I know the gear ratios are different, but I was mostly wondering if the great feel of the tranny in the 328i is also present in the 335i. Reason I ask is that I've always been...

Different Manual Transmissions between 328i and 335i?

So this is odd. According to RealOEM, the transmissions in the 328i and 335i are different. I looked both up and they have different part numbers. Does anyone know what's going on here?

You know, I did wonder about that when I thought the S Tronic meant it was an automatic. The thing is, the engine is so quiet in the cabin that I thought I'd just imagined seeing the blip. LOL.

Which driving mode were you in? Throttle response varies widely between EcoPro, Comfort and Sport.

I would call it a tie. Compared to my M3, both are very, very muted and quiet. But as I mentioned, the S4 had a really annoying creak from the top of the passenger side front window every time we...

Hey, I see you have the 328i Sport line. After all these drives, we're still leaning toward the 328i. Would love to get your thoughts, as you've had the 328 for a while, right?

Driven Back-to-Back: 335i M-Sport vs Audi S4

Our test-driving adventures continue. My wife and I had previously driven a 328i M-Sport 6MT and a 335i Lux Line. From that drive, we preferred the 328i but also wanted to find at least a 335i in...

I'm with you. Saddle Brown is an awesome color and the closest we now have to the old Cinnamon, which was my favorite interior for the E46 M3. Has anyone actually tried to get Saddle in an M Sport?...

So does this mean that with the ZDH package, you can have the drive mode default to Sport/Sport+ instead of Comfort? If so, that's almost a reason to get it right there.
