I used to fly SWA into MCI nearly once a week back in 2007 and 2008. We were over the moon when they added a kiosk selling food, beer and bottled water past security. I'd rather see that godforsaken terminal look like Cyprus than continue to be used. »
And they're pretty much the only company still selling cars with four speed automatics in the US. Their product is, quality aside, looking more and more like the GM of 20 years ago, relative to the rest of the industry. »
It's more a hot hatch than sports coupe, but I'm thinking Acura's doldrums could be addressed pretty easily with a new Integra. »

The biggest culprit was iDrive, which he absolutely hated with a passion that bordered on the religious. »
1) Avoid the autos like the plague. They're not even up to the stock turbo output.
2) Reinforce the engine mounts. It's actually a well documented fix to sandwich in some cut A/C hose into the engine mounts. Turns them much stiffer and much more robust.
