See i think you're not thinking this one through. In this country I spend most of my time either sitting on the motorway behind someone doing 65mph in the outside lane, or stuck in rush hour / town traffic. I almost never get to use ANY of the power of my car.

as a result, its the comfort / gadgets / sound system / good seats etc that make the car worth living with. As a result, in most driving conditions the toys are more important than the engine. Even a 318 can do 30mph
