I had an '84 VW GTI (the original one), a 91 VW GLI, then I drove an '86 325es. None of those cars had turbos, all had less than 150 HP, were quick and would turn on a dime. My favorite car is my current 325i and my #2 was the 325es. I would rather have a car that handled well than one that had 500 HP.
You make a good point. And it's not all about speed I kno. But I want a car with everything I want for the best bang for my buck.
