Do you mean lesser manufacturers such as Subaru? I drove a Subaru BRZ for about a day or so, that car can drive circles around the F10. The Subrau electric steering is probably one of the best I have ever driven, very nice feedback, much bgetter than anything BMW has to offer. I agree there are other factors involve in how a car handles, but suspension is probably the most important factor.
