That's the reason I personally got the car, the balance of great handling, balancing, transmission, and engine combined with luxury and electronics. It just seemed like the OP didn't care about the luxury/electronic part and I didn't get a feeling that he really felt the need to push the car anywhere near it's limits to use the handling/powerplant.
(I knew I was poking the bear when I mentioned those two cars
I personally didn't even look at them until I did a google search right before I made that post)
