Having just bought a V6 I thought I'd throw in my .02.  While I love the
12V V6 (it's so smooth!), I find that my I5 10V seems to be more fun to 
drive.  Maybe it's just me, but at times I find the V6 feels and sounds a bit
too "tame" and "civilized".

Plus in well over 200K kms it's never had any engine problems (knock on 
wood).  Reliable and fun.  What more could one ask for?  25V turbo I5
anyone? :)
