And it is NOT the case. I swapped the cars with my coworker - N55 E92 ZSP 6MT (mine) with his V6 Premium Performance Pack Mustang for a whole weekend. There was NOTHING Mustang wouldn't do that my BMW could in my favorite twisties...
HOWEVER ... fill in the gaps.
Let's just say I had no problem having a car that costed DOUBLE to his and he had no problem keeping the car that costed HALF. Different strokes for different folks.
Heck, even my Jetta TDI 5MT can take most of those corners at the same speed ... but the FEEL is absolutely and completely different. Some idiots (like myself) are willing to pay for that feel, even if the numbers say it ain't so
