Why? It has enough torque to do sub 5 second 0 - 60, 13 flat quarter on street tires.

I will go with you on this one.

Welcome to high performance cars. You want low maintennace, get a standard 3 series or any of the Japanese clones. Real motors have solid lifters and have to have the vlaves adjusted. And every 30 - 60K is NOT often. Often is having them adjusted every 3-5K miles.
