First car was a '68 Dodge Monaco, a big old tank. I was 16. It was 8. First new car was an '85 Dodge Daytona Turbo, a 146hp turbo 4. Peppy for then but even my '06 X3 would have run away from it. First real sports car was a '91 Mitsi 3000GT VR-4. 300hp TT V-6 and AWD. Its handling was well above anything up to that time and still the most neutral easy to drive at the limit car I've had to date. 4 wheel drifts where a breeze. The handling would not bite you even on sheer ice. And that was with Michelin XGT-4 performance all-seasons.

Hey guys, I know this thread is soo last week but I'm sitting here at the detailers looking at the sept issue of Car & Driver and I see that the 2011 IS was reviewed in the august issue. Their road test summary lists the 0-60 as 4.4 and the 1/4 mile 12.9 @109.9... Anyone have this issue?

just traded my blue, sweet driving 2009 35i for a low miles 2011 white...35iS.....
still paid indeed the approx 9k upward ;-)
But
what a difference, better handling, the engine with the AT in manual and sport seems far more a team with the transmission, fast, fast and just love the sound of the exhaust, even my wife is grinning in the passenger seat.

For the record it's not an AT, you have a DCT or dual clutch transmission. No toque converter. While the DCT does shift automatically it's a completely different breed.

And I am still breaking it in, with only 20000 miles on it, so I am working on beyond grinning

Thanks

i am very happy with my 35i. However I enjoy the pops and burbles of the exhaust and I understand the 35is does more of that. And you don't get that from a Tune. Also i believe that they have some other heavier duty parts under the hood. (forged crank?) I am not real crazy about 19" wheels but they could work with the proper tires. The additional power is always nice but I can't imagine where I would use it. All in all I do wish I had one.

In the MHD Flash standard maps, you can go to the settings and there are options to change the burble/pop aggression levels and duration. Change the settings to max and you shall be very surprised at how resoundingly loud it gets on the 35i.

35is is a waste

Dinan stage 2 on 35i and 35is yield same results. I overpaid for a 35is in 2014.
