Thanks for the link to that site. Not getting anything done today! Reminds me how much I wanted a Passat Wagon W8 with a 6-speed.

I'm surprised he didn't pick an American truck.

2010 was the year of the patriotism-inducing Cadillac CTS-V Sportwagon—but all good years come to an end, and the 535dT is the rightful heir.

The site implies that this was the case.

Also, this is the "Powered Up" list, separate from the TG list.

Really? He picked a diesel? For some reason I thought he despised diesels.

He complains about them more often than he praises them, but has done both throughout the show since the re-launch. (Never watched the earlier stuff.) He's just trying to say something shocking/surprising/controversial. How else would he stay relevant?

I wish we could have gotten some of the older BMW diesels over here.

diesels aren't what they used to be. If you doubt, go drive one and report back
