    Those sound like the most directly comparable FWD cars. I know itís not a fair comparison as it was a few years ago, but the current gen Civic Type R was only $41k MSRP in 2017 and increased to $46k...

    I didn’t find the 2.0 AMG hand built engine very enjoyable to drive which is one of the reasons I ended up selling mine. With DCT and turbo lag, there is a lot of waiting for power which is probably...

    Plus they keep raising prices as they decontent. Profit margin is getting pretty good on these cars. So much for the $35k car for the masses.
