Any power for that matter, once used to it, will need more.....lol:rofl:
But I would think at certain level, you might feel enough already coz once past that then might get too scary. For me I think around 300-400HP range with good torque delivery in a car weighing no more than 1.5 tons is good enough coz that's damn fast already for me as a road car.

Will need a proper powerful car for that department, that's why i have my e46 coupe, its going to be my night rider, thinking of 1JZ or 1UZ as its powerplant.

To be 300 is way more than enough, sometimes its the setup of the transmission instead of engine power, close ratio gearbox like FD2R can make it sprint so fast despite N/A engine with 222 hp.

Not aware of that, 12 years old car, minimum can get an EVO 9 2006 LOL ...

Pretty sure i will go with a 325i, was very happy with another well maintained one which revs to 7k rpm like a champ and shift crispy. 200+ Hp N/A 6cyl engine really intoxicating. Haven't try K20A - R though. Anyone can give me a ride :burnout:

Thanks,
Ken

3 Series is actually rather big already, not compact. It's mid size sedan and already rather heavy hence not behave like compact sedan.

That’s not the S4 you want. No sports diff. If you’re gonna pay that much for road tax you’re better off getting the fully loaded one.

It's small for my size, the M-sport seat can't hug my back well.

4 cylinders are prone to above your mentioned. 6 cylinders so far has lesser problems compare to 4 cylinders. But i am aware of the electric water pump issue, it will go out pretty soon.

Thanks,
Ken
