The only "data", and I am assuming it's valid, is that given by bear-avhistory in post #25. That data supports my experience that BMW, while giving a great handling feel, does not leave more mundane...

My friend just purchased a new Kia Optima. For the price, $26K out the door, that's a great value vehicle. Includes all kinds of goodies I'd expect to see in a higher priced car (for example cooled...

I would be happy to refer to any credible publication you have to support your context. I'm merely waiting for you to provide them (or a reference to them).

The data I have is available in post #25. Until you have something which shows otherwise the Accord, based on this information, is inline with the performance of the BMW.

Additional data would be helpful. With that said do you have anything to show the Accord is worse in handling than the BMW?
