I know that lately, we've gained a lot of new members which is awesome and a lot of those new members are coming from other forums that may use vBulletin and their Private Message (PM) system. Here, we use the XenForo forum software which is (IMHO) much better than vBulletin. The "Conversation" system here is the same as the PM system on vBulletin. So if you want to PM another member, just click their username in a post, and click on "Start Conversation". To see all of your PMs, click on your profile and go to Inbox. Hope this helps.
Interesting read but they base everything on the Detroit show information and pictures of the ATS show car - nothing on actually having driven the ATS. The real comparo report will be when someone gets a production ATS and drives in along side the 3-series Bimmer (and the G37, etc.). Then we'll have a better answer - assuming that the testers can be impartial and call it as it is and not as the advertising department tells them to.
