How important is fuel economy to you guys?

Personally, I dont really mind. I mean I wont be driving a F350 Quad cab long bed, however I will pay within reason.

I say this because I want to be able to drive what I want. Like I plan on getting a jeep. Already worse milage then my Honda. Then I want to lift it, and larger tires yadda yadda.

It'll hurt my milage, but I dont really mind, because I want to be happy driving what I want.

Gas isn't getting cheaper. We're averaging around 5 bucks a gallon in California right now.

Important to me because I live my life broke. When you take time to see how much you're spending and how much value you're truly getting out of your transportation, it's important to find a compromise.

It's so bad here, I'm considering getting a Hybrid.

No, it's not going to be a Prius. Absolutely hate those cars.

I don't see the point in having so many gears. I just see it as a marketing gimmick. If I were to pay that much for the IS-F, I would rather pay a bit more for a E92 M3 or a C63 AMG. More substance, no fakery and pure driving pleasure.

If you're going to be making commutes in heavy traffic and driving around in downtown LA it'll be worth it. If you make long highway commutes forget it. You won't get much better mileage than an ICE car.

I use the 101 to commute from Ventura to downtown. It's not possible to drive on a highway in Southern California and not experience traffic.

Not really it multiplies the torque, and its one of the fastest shifting auto trannys. I was talking about the normal IS as a sports sedan, if i would spend that much i would get teh GTR
