I cannot think of any with a close price tag

I am just comparing it to my other car. I am having to adjust my driving style at autocross to deal with the much slower response of the M3 compared to the elise. I basically have to drive a point and shoot style rather than trying to carry momentum.

I might try to convince a friend to drive one of them down for me later this year so I can run them both on the same course and same day to compare the data logs.

I have good logs from the last autocross to compare it to a mini, but thats not the best comparison.
