Yes yes worst car in the world from the worst company ever. Model x starts at 80 but goes to 140 if you go to the version that is faster than almost Hypercars.

It would be kind of :neat: getting an absolute base model hatch with the 2.0L/ :manuel: and using the extra :waxer: left over on good suspension and down the road (like after the warranty expires) some aftermarket power gainz. 2.0 is a total pig tho... and the body kit and suspension and interior u...

Didn’t max equate buying a Hyundai to contracting Ebola?

You also forget the 6/72,000 bumper to bumper and powertrain that would normally cost $2,500 third party to get an “extended” warranty on a 3/36,000 Or you could just get a reliable car where the warranty doesn't matter :zing: Seriously warranty doesn’t truly matter, the irony is when you get it yo...

That new Etron is bad ass, I’m also surprised they released it as “Etron” since that’s a name used for all their plug in vehicles. I thought it would be called Q6 Etron. I like it though, I’d lean towards that over the Model X. Definitely agree. Isn't the Model X also like twice the price? I though...

On the flipside I never found the 6 speed to be bad performing. It also seems relatively reliable with epic genii pushing 400whp through it, which is double the design spec. now that i think about it, I'm more :rage: at the transmission programming for mk6 and up on D, in manual mode it's decent, b...

It's not even flyover :doe: , whole East Coast is the same. It's really only CA and a few other Western states that have "cheap" premium.
It's also just 91, so not really apples to apples.

While I enjoyed driving the Sport in both manual and continuously variable automatic forms, which will cost you an additional $800, the Si still boasts a clear mechanical superiority: It pulls more power from the 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, bumping output to 205 horsepower and 192 pounds-feet o...

Not that it really matters, but the Si is heavier and slower.
