    All German cars are built with the Autobahn as the standard. Thus German cars are built to attain higher speeds and do so very safely and well controlled compared to Japanese cars.

    the testing is a bit different in germany, I hear they have some sort of slalom test, and the MB A-class couldn't pass it without some type of stability system installed.... from what I understood of my coworker's broken english.

    Not anymore. German cars certainly aren't cheaper (like VWs used to be) or more reliable.

    Aside from sheer highspeed performance, the Japanese have the German's beat.

    WTF?????
    How many German cars have YOU driven? The German Automotive Council has a mandate in place that all road-going passenger class vehicles meet very specific stability and adverse-weather handling guidelines. As far as reliability, the 996 series is designed to require a major tune-up ever 100,000 miles. Oil changes occur every 10,000 miles under normal driving conditions. No other country can match the Germans' success in endurance racing (LeMans, FIM GT, DTM, etc.). They even dominate the American LeMans series. Those are factory spec internals for those engines, keep in mind.
    You must be a Honda boy. Save some money, get an international license, and take a trip to Germany. The Autobahn at 2:00 AM is an unparalleled experience. I've been to Japan, too, and the driveability & feel of those cars pales in comparison to das Deutsche Automobil.

    F1 isn't real. It' just a bunch of open wheeled racers you'll never see on the street.

    F1 is the undisputed pinnacle of automotive engineering. The presitge of each marque's road cars comes from their successes at this level. More and more F1 technology is being incorporated into road cars each year.

    I thought this is one of those "Germans are superior because they got bigger dicks."

    Maybe 5 years after it on the track, it may find it's way to a normal car. How long did it take VTEC to get to the Civic?
