What "objective numbers" are you referring to.  May be I'm missing
something, but (working from memory - don't have any car rags handy at the
moment) almost every BMW is faster than the competing Audi, does better on
the skid pad and slalom, and brakes better.  Moreover, BMWs offer the same
type of feel and attention to detail as Audi and Porsche.  Unlike, say a 6
cylinder Camry or a Maxima, which will put up very good numbers but just
don't have the "feel" that our Audis have.  Nothing but the most tricked out
(which will usually mean very loud, very stiff, and very fragile) Audi can
stay with a stock M3 or 540i 6 speed.
