how do you peel out at a stop light in a 323, that thing has less torque than a Civic . . .

Currently I am without my 323 considering that I had a bit of a suspension curb mishap.... 90% my fault 10% traction control fault (it didn't kick in and I never disable it)

The 323i only has 170 ponies, it's not a powerhouse, but it does deliver much better feedback to the driver

I concur 100%. The only place it doesn't feel fast is when taking off from a standstill, but how fast might one NEED to go?!

I think it's a great balance..to me raw power isn't everything-its how the power is delivered.

You're wrong.

A civic driver would go for a drive to show off his 140 hp car with a fart can. He gets pleasure from the disgusted looks from other drivers.

We are more refined. We go for drives because we have the ultimate driving machine (maybe not with too many ponies) but still it is a good car that you can enjoy driving and turn the heads of people to put smiles on their faces

Civics are for immature teenagers. I may be a teenager but I respect my car, my neighbors and myself and personally would rather have the reliability, quality and craftsmanship my bmw gives me over a car that sounds like a sewing machine and makes me look like a stupid kid.
