How much does it matter to you?

When comparing cars people tend to argue over marginal differences in performance. Car A hits 60 a few tenths quicker than Car B. This car pulls .05g more than that car. This car traps a few mph fast than the other. This will lap the nurburgring 5 seconds faster than the other one. Etc etc.

In the real world, it really doesn't make a difference, unless you have to have the faster car, be it only by a little.

I should say that this pertains more to cars that are positioned to compete with one another, like the M3, C63, IS-F and RS4.

Does it really matter if one of those is faster than the other? On paper maybe, but I couldn't give a rat's ass if I had the faster or slower car of the bunch.

To me, it comes down to the driving experience. I don't see the point in owning the faster car on paper if it's not as involving or not as fun. I see so many arguments on this forum that go 10+ pages-long about how the GTR can (or can't) achieve its fabled 'Ring time. Honestly, who cares? Does it really matter?

That's what I'm wondering. How do you all see it.
