I know the 3.0SC brigade will larf into the bottom of their testosterone fuelled yards of ale, but reading on another thread someone mentioned they were impressed with their 2.0l performance against a Z4 Beemer. OK the Z4 may not have realised he was being "challenged", but I quite often drive mine like I stole it and even when driven sedentary the little 2.0l bless it has a little bit of a raspy rumble to the exhaust note. So on reflection was I right to blow my extra spends on options or the bigger engine and less options??? I'm sure the bigger engine would make me smile on the few occasions I could use it. But the 2.0 ain't no slouch, I really love all the options and you really can't beat that feeling when you see people turn and point as you go by! To me, that's the winning crowning point of these cars, I really do love it despite the ICTP!!
