I asked them this question, the SA gave me a blank stare and asked me what a gear was. He said it shifts gears with lasers.

I mean if you only care about the 1/4 mile or 1/4 galaxy or any other straight line numbers, go for the UFO. But nothing beats the balance of the M3, and that glorious sound...

M3 FTW!

Interstellar travel would be good but I"m thinking the real fun would be abducting supermodels.

At the end of the day you're still only driving a UFO and not a BMW.

I wonder if Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, and Sigourney Weaver will agree with your review.

The UFO got to 60 in 2 nano seconds. The M3 felt like an eternity.

I would hope the UFO comes with standard navigation - otherwise you could seriously get lost driving that thing!!

Well... you forgot to add the UFO is not really a daily driver either as the M3 can do it all, track tool, around town grocery getter and daily driver to work - it actually has the UFO beat. The UFO is inferior in all things that are measurable by me, which means there is no subjective bias in this statment.

You picked the wrong car...err....ship to test drive. Should have crossed shops with the Death Star instead. This is totally an apples to oranges comparison.

Bwahaha this thread wins thread of the month.

Nav was standard. You could get this awesome 3D Virtual Map that literally put IN the map. Pretty cool.

I'll have to go ask Darth Vader if I can barrow it for a little test drive. Don't think he'll mind, do you?

The M3's idle sensor keeps dying.
