That's not what we're in BMW's for, at least I hope anyway.
Was just gonna say; it's hard to admit, but my finacee's RAV4 sport feels like it would walk all over either of my cars in a 1/4 mile, even my "mighty" 540i/6. lol. Not so sure about the better fuel mileage thing though. We've yet to beat my E36 on a trip up to the cottage and back. That's with me driving either vehicle (going for economy) and the same 2 people, dog, cooler and gym bag pretty much every time.

Strangely, there are people who think we're silly for modifying old BMW's in order to make them only slightly slower than a new Camry.
I was just going to post this. Its a dirty mod, but its a mileage mod.

Well at least in the 14's but its main build is for tracks than straights.

If you want to keep things in perspective.. My little 4 as it sits now holds its own pretty good with most modern cars within a range... It has bested the lancer gt, really close with focus svt, sir/si civics... Can it do well vs m3, mustang, amg, S4, g35, etc.. No... V6 camry not the new one , the 4 im sure it would be close... But for a 21 yr old car with a few mods done and more on the way she goes pretty good.

I love it when i go on the crusies when people dont believe i have a 1.8... Till i show them.
Yeah... we are more in the 16-17 second range with m42. Still, for a 17+ yr old cars, its kick ass.

A 1996-2000 corolla of similar design and vintage has NOTHING on me, and neither does a 1996-2000 vintage camry. New cars, are OBVIOUSLY FASTER, THEY ARE NEW.

Its all about comparing apples to apples, NOT apples to freaking watermelons people!!!
