Just my two cents, but I actually would not want to keep talking with that guy... There are enough enthusiasts who can appreciate a variety of cars (including from different brands) while still being honest and balanced.
Indeed, I'm kinda feeling like that. Which is sad

I mean, it's one thing to say you like one car over the other for whatever reason (lighter/more nimble, cheaper, etc), but to make stuff up or "slant" the truth a little to make your case?

I mean, it doesn't get any better than referring to the DCT tranny as "oh, the automatic"
