    0.88G for 140 000 plus? Big surprise, Mercedes slaps a massive engine in a car, turbo charges it, and doesn't even make it handle well.

    BMW really isn't the "We have a perfectly good V12, let's twin-turbo it" kind of company...

    it's about the same as a 350z, and all of OT insists that that handles better than anything on earth

    roadsters, especially heavy luxury ones aren't made to have amazing handloebraes :o :o

    if you're spending that much on a car, chances are you have a lot of money left to buy a real sports car :cool:

    it's 'cause BMW hasn't grasped the concept of making hard-top convertibles.
