i read an article on slate today about the increase in weight that modern day cars have over cars that were built even 22 years ago. is it fair to say that the e39 is 25% more nimble than the f10 and the e60 is 12% more nimble? because that's the math of the weight differences. and i'm ok with that if it means that one day that extra 300 pds saves me or my wife's or my child's life. you can keep your "feels less nimble"

We are all entitled to opinions.

I respect yours.

I never mentioned the percentage difference in handling. Even if its one percent, thats not the point. Im talking about the differences in feel that are transferred to the driver.

One More Thing, are you 100% certain that the 300 extra pounds has a significant impact on the safety of yoru loved ones?
