I like to think I am still considerate, but I am human, I have my moments.... I find myself to be much more impatient when I am driving the BMW. I am definitely the most relaxed driving my Triumph. It's so slow you couldn't outrun a 3yr old on a tricycle, but it feels like a missile. > >I mean, you are the guy in Maine, right? How agressively do they *ever* >drive up there? Yep, I live in the 'burbs of Portland. Compared to MA or NY, not very. Compared to anywhere in the "flyover States", extremely agressively. I travel constantly for my job - People in the Midwest make me crazy they drive so slowly and passively! > >> >> Kevin Rhodes >> 91 BMW 318is (M3 Jr, same suspension, 40 less hp, 200lbs less wieght) > >Was the '91 318is an E30? I assume you are comparing it to an E30 M3... Yes indeed. 1.8l twincam four. Very much a junior M3 in spirit. Lovely car to drive, the more you rev it the better it gets. Bet it would suck to tow with though - to bring up an earlier thread! :-) Kevin > >-Fred W
