I've gone through most of these 101 pages and IMHO the best looking sedan is Twenty's and the best looking hatchback is Zillon's.

Obligatory pic of my bone stock Sterling Gray Titanium, DCT, Premium, Cold Weather, Handling, Sunroof, MFT and navigation. Probably the only addition will be some 17" wheels to mount the 205/50/17 snow tires I have left over from my BMW 325i. Since I'm a wheel snob, I'll probably go with either the SE sport package wheels or the Axis wheels on Zillon's car.



1200 miles in two weeks and I'm loving this little car. Not missing the BMW and it's premium gas requirement at all. Don't get me wrong, the bimmer was a fantastic car but was killing me every time it saw the inside of my mechanic's garage. But it was 10 years old and seriously out of date technology-wise.

Sonic ... I've seen several references to using premium in our cars. Any empirical evidence of performance or MPG increases?

Regular is $3.759 and premium $3.999 in my area. That's a 6.4% price difference. Will I see a 6.4% MPG difference?

Tim, if you want empirical data check out the numerous MPG/Power threads, you'll be disappointed to a point. All I can say is try it for yourself and see. It all depends on your goals for your car.
