    forgot to tell you guys - i got a good deal on a Porsche Boxster rental in Vegas so i spent a half day blasting up and down the Lake Mead/Valley of Fire canyon road (government shutdown clearing the roads ftw!)

    car is simply awesome. PDK isn't better than DCT though.

    It eats rear tires. Fronts have been replaced only once, but the third time for the rears.

    Wrecked my 2005 TSX on Monday...totaled. Was debating between a 2011 535 and a 2009 TL. Was leaning toward the 535, but went with the TL. The Mrs. and I decided it was better to avoid having a car payment and reached an agreement that when I finish in 2.5 years I can get a new M5.

    Happy with the TL. Big technology improvement over my TSX.

    If you're referring to the difference in tread depth between the two rear tires, there's nothing intrinsic to tread depth that affects the dry (or wet w/o standing water) traction of a tire.

    I should have clarified that the right tire practically has zero tread depth.
