Don't get me wrong... nothing like the styling, sound & complete package from Ferrari. But it'd have to be a weekend only car for me.. .and even then... I don't think I could deal with the lack of torque... I like 'short shifting' and lugging my cars around town.

That's interesting, I had the impression it has more torque than the M3. Perhaps it's much peakier in nature than the M3 torque curve?

Anyway, this would be a weekend/track car so I don't think it would annoy me.
