    I Did a Thing

    Thanks! So far the only aspect of the car that I'd consider a downgrade is the transmission, but it's hard to top a DSG. Otherwise, it feels like it has pretty similar performance to the GTI without its harshness. When I initially test drove an ATS, I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did. I didn't expect to like this color combination, either, but it seems to fit the car well.

    Thanks! Here's another quick garage pic since today doesn't look any better.

    Thanks! I guess it has been a while since I've been on here. Time sure does fly... I've had the Miata for a little over a year now. Anyhow, I traded my GTI in on that ATS yesterday. It's a very lightly used '15 2.0t with 9k miles on it.

    Also, long time no see! More pictures to come once the weather cooperates.

    Kia News: 2018 Kia Stinger GT Is Something Very Different (UPDATE)

    I can't wait to actually see this. It looks great, even if it's a bit of a mish-mash of styling cues.
  6. The design is exactly what they needed to do with this model. It actually looks a class above the Equinox for once. The push-button transmission on the other hand... Who actually wants that? It seems like a huge miscalculation with its unergonomic design. Seriously... there are plus and minus buttons for gear selection. WTF.

    What's your most feared driver stereotype?

    Any driver of any jacked up truck ever.
  8. Very good looking car. I can't wait to see this wearing Buick badges. I want that wagon in the spy shots.

    Happy Birthday to our own Black Viper

    Thanks, y'all. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was being berated by the elder forum masters for my young foolishness.

    Want to Hear Somebody Take a Dump on the CT6?

    I think the problem with the CT6 is its lack of commitment to any one segment. It's not quite a flagship, not quite an executive in size, price, and features. It's almost like the original CTS in that its size is more similar to the class above its pricing. This has its advantages and disadvantages, as such. As far as CUE, obviously the more you use it and become accustomed to it, it's not going to be an issue for you. I, personally, can't speak on any of the newly released models with the supposedly updated software, myself. I've only had experience with 2016 and prior systems. Those, however, were truly awful. There is no way around that. Were they unusable? No, of course, not. If you bought the car, you'd likely get used to it just as many have gotten used to MFT over the years. That doesn't make it better than competitors systems. If you want to truly judge the system, don't do so without spending equal time with Mercedes', BMW's, Audi's, and especially Volvo's infotainment systems. Take away the bias, and you'll probably find they are much more sorted and intuitive systems. Lexus, Infiniti, and Acura, on the other hand are just as irritating as CUE, if not more so. With that said, I hope that CUE has been sorted out well enough with the most recent updates. Again, I haven't had a chance to use the system in a CT6 or XT5 yet so it could very well be. I've seen a few reviews that noted various improvements, so there is hope to be had.

    Here's another comparison with a similar verdict: Autoguide: Genesis G90 vs. Cadillac CT6

    Rip Off or Compliment?

    Cadillac design is starting to get stale, in my opinion. The switch to the wreath-less crest brought with it new grills that do nothing to help this problem. The ATS, from the head-on, looks absolutely dopey. The rest of the line-up doesn't suffer from that issue, but as a whole, they're rather staid. The V-cars manage to still stir the soul to some degree, but the overall design hasn't really been fresh. With Cadillac's Escala concept, I think they acknowledge that there is a need to at least tweak the design moving forward.
  13. It's nice they're finally trying, but the Sentra is just an awful car to start with. There's maybe one car it outclasses and that is the Corolla. Even then, it's a pretty close race to decide which is more garbage than the other.
  14. I'm slightly underwhelmed. It's restrained, sure, but I was hoping there would be more of a gap between regular trims, the Si and the Type-R. This seems to be more Civic Sport hatchback plus, but applied to the coupe. I would have wished for a more stepped approach. It does, however, fall in line with Honda's tradition of Si trims, none of which have been differentiated much from lower trims. Eh, considering the competition, the Civic is far from bland or dull. Cruze, Focus, Elantra, Forte, Corolla, Impreza, Sentra, Jetta, and Golf are all much more mainstream and looking. The only car with more emotion in the design is the Mazda3. And I'm pretty sure they're making bank. Just saying...
  15. Regarding price, my biggest question would be how much the shocks alone add to the sticker. They are of the same variety of those found on the Z/28 and that car commanded a pretty penny. Granted, there was a lot more to go into it than just shocks, but I have to wonder.
