Welcome to the forums ferrarichika. You're not going to be thinking about speed when you're stuck in traffic either P

And what pray tell are you going to be doing 303mph in? Or is this just more yada, yada.

That is easy, get both and buy exotic. Cars will go over the speed limit. So if you want to hualing ass at like 100 on the interstate like i do every so often you could get a fast car. But when you reach the traffic i hope that is is nice in there. So as much as i think that speed is better, not everyone can buy an exotic car, so i would think that comfort is better for everyday driving because that is what we do drive to and from work/ school/ whatever. If you have to go fast then plan to leave earlier!!!

What are you saying, Bull? Hyundai's bottom of the totem pole car can do 100mph...albeit maybe downhill, with a tail wind...since when is doing 100mph "hauling a$$"???

Personally...as you'll notice from the name, avatar, and sig block...I'm a BMW fan. The M5 offers both speed, luxury, and CLASS!! And when comparing to it's rival, MBZ E55, a lot cheaper. IMO.

Yeah, if you drive an exotic like a Lamborghini Diablo or Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo, you can hual ass at like 100mph but it also looks nice inside for when you're in traffic.

ChevySuxD0ng, the top speed of the Lamborghini Diablo (that was once the world’s fastest car) is 202mph to be exact. I know that you didn’t mention the Lamborghini Diablo specifically but I doubt that you were referring to the LM002 that has a top speed of 126mph. You neglected to mention the fact that I tied a Lamborghini and a Fiat with the same brush and that the aesthetics of a car interior isn’t relevant to being stuck in traffic.

no my mom's focus can go at least 110. i have drivin it that fast. we have done nothing to enhance the performance of the car whatsoever. we did buy it used, and the people before us had it on a lease. but i don't think they did anything to it either. and the fact that it is the zts version might have something to do with it.

The slowest of the Focus hatchback range can do 106mph.
