also, you really are the genius if you want a car for "normal American stop and go" or "highway racing." people buy cars for their own reasons, however too many good ones for not buying a car to do this.
I would if that was all I wanted in a car.
I was merely comparing a small aspect of the M3 and you took it like I was bashing the whole car and that one aspect was my only reason for wanting an M3.
There are obviously many other apects of the M3 that make it far more superior and that is why I am ordering one.
The M3 is not going to be perfect in all areas, but as a total package I believe nothing in that price range compares.
