    Setting the bar pretty low for a bigger car thread OP. Pretty sure that little import will fit in any spot labeled compact.

    Yeah, I guess I was talking about engines. That car will fit in any compact spot. But the 5.4l engine is a thing of beauty. That second one IS the argument for electric cars. hehe.

    Money ride with those miles. Are you angling for a buy back? Ex-wife?

    Lexus IS-F has an amazing V8, or at least used to a few years back. Unreal throttle response and sound.

    Miss my straight 6 now that Iím back to another turbo-4

    I saw one in Park City this year, he accelerated hard towards the roundabout, sounded badass.

    edit, I thought you were referring to the Lexus LFA.

    Yeah, I had a turbo 4 in a sedan once, and it was weak. Well it wasn't, but not nearly as good as a straight 6, or...... A V FUCKING 8!
    (turbo 4 in 944 turbo is fun)

    Almost. That would be the V-12. Two I-6 engines joined at the hip. All the smoothness, double the power and that amazing sound.
