But in much of the US, you just can't do that. Especially in the Washington DC area I live, where traffic is extremely heavy and roads are poorly maintained. So, the Car seems to make a lot of sense where you live. Here 0-60 is probably more important. I don't push the limits often though--just when think I need it. Thanks, Pete
