Too many times on forums such as this, you get "my car is bettter than xyz," yada, yada, yada. Comments such as this just shows how narrow minded you are, and shows that you are not a true enthusiast.
I liken this to women. It's impossible to answer the question "who is the most beautiful".
Imagine making the comment "my wife/girlfriend is prettier/sexier than yours". Sounds pretty insipid and childish doesn't it...
My girlfriend is sexier than my wife but my wife is prettier than my girlfriend.
