Yes indeed. Not settling can mean waiting 2 or 3 years for the right one. That is 2 to 3 years of roadster experience down the drain. Best to weigh options and determine if a car in budget can meet...

Chris Harris nails it for me when he explains his idea of fun, in this review of his breadvan. Skip to the 2:40 mark if you're in a hurry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWB6vTboO5I

Car and Driver puts the M3 vert at 5.1 and the Si at 5.3. Not a lot between them. It makes sense since the S54 only comes into a clear advantage in the upper rev range.

I'm seeing 5.4 sec for the M3 vert and 5.1 for the Z4 3.0si in 0-60 times.

Yes, fun is subjective. The important thing is that even though the Z4M offers more ultimate performance, it is not the...

With regards to normal driving, the Si has more fun in it for me than the Z4M for the reasons I mentioned. For track use the M would be better. How did you come to the conclusion that the M3 vert...

Some big cars can dance too :). I always reserve judgment until the test drive. There is a lot more to a car than the stats.

That is a tough call. Odds are not in favor of finding an Si much below the 15's at the moment and they may take a year or two to get into the 12's. On the other hand buying a lower model now to...

$15k price + $1k for post purchase and preventative maintenance, or buy Wildag's well maintained Z4M. A no-brainer to me :D.

When it snows I cover my Scion with a tarp that goes over the windshield, and is held by closing the doors over it. Saves a huge amount of time in snow and ice removal.

How do you use your accelerator?

Do you press the gas pedal with the just ball of your foot or do you place your entire shoe on the pedal?
