    Let me guess, redneck and impregnated cousin jokes lol.

    I've driven an M2. It's a very nice thing. The biggest issue I have with it is the turbo lag. Weirdly enough, the M2 feels every pound of its curb weight. The 350 feels lighter than its curb weight. Which to this day still upsets me in that what if the car really was 100lbs lighter? How amazing would that be.

    "American build quality," "It's a boat," etc. The M2 is an awesome car, but it is numb and, to me, lacks engagement.

    It's a boat...and the M2 isn't? BMW owner logic would say that car should weigh less than a Corvette. And a Corvette weighs 150lbs less. In Grand Sport form.

    Amazing haha.

    I love my S3. Love it even more now with the Stage 1+ ECU tune and TCU tune. The tuned DSG is phenomenal. It’s my 3rd Audi, and I’ll always have one in my garage.

    Clearly they didn't care about 0-60 if they put the 350 on top of that list.

    Im am not surprised the GT350 was #1 but I figured 90% of the GT350 performance for less money still would have placed on top.
