Ok LTs, I have to say I am totally onboard with Enigma. I couldn't care less about 0-60 times. It only measures one aspect of a car's greatness. I'd rather compare track times. But any of those measurements are so driver dependant. I'd have to say the 0-60 time even being more driver dependant because we're talking fractions of a second. I was up at Watkin's Glen last fall for a BMW Driver's School. I have a mostly stock E-36 M3, but yet I was going faster than all the E46 M3s in my school. That means I was going faster than cars with 88 more horsepower than my car. Horsepower and acceleration aren't the only measure of how fast a car really is. BTW, I did a 2:24.6 at the Glen. I only wish all cars could be tested at the same track for a good comparison. I guess the ring is as good as any. But I've only driven it in a underpowered rental car.
