Is it me or most NA (USA/CAN) reviewers are praising it and Euro Journo's don't like it or have harsher criticism.
What kills me especially is the Transmission debate...you have very good in NA and garbage tranny in Euro...

Guess where the hush money goes !! :money:

I kind of get the feeling that in Europe, they are much more into the whole car as a racing machine thing. Which is fine if you are in Germany :) With our 100 km speed limit and springtime potholes, we are much more practical in my opinion since we never really (legally) get to push the performance boundaries of our cars..

It's interesting that he praised the lack of road noise. This will not be the case with the run-flat tires that the Canadian cars will be delivered with. The B 250 also has these run-flats and the road roar is horrendous.

Otherwise the review seems pretty good.
