it's true..I have to floor it in 1st and 2nd in order to keep up with moving traffic from stoplight.. (I miss mini cooper s that I drove every summer for last 3 years) But I think 100 bhp in little e30 is more than enough to get around in the city + occasional highway driving.. what sort of mpg you get out of the touring? I haven't calculated my mpg yet but I'll check it out after I fill it up..
