    You sound like you'd rather be in a cushy Buick sedan driving old ladies around.

    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    Ferrer apparently needs more real world car experiences and test drives.

    Ever driven a car before, Ferrer?

    Have you ever driven a big car on tight roads? European roads.

    maybe you missed some of his reviews.
    Mini, 1 Series, A6 4.2 V8, XF 4.2 V8 are the first that come to mind.

    Indeed, speed is fun. But speed alone doesn't cut it.
