One other comment...
Depends on what type of driver you are. But since we have a small engine Lag II and a big engine version, i can pick up on some comparrisions.

Namely, if i want to have some fun in mine, and throw it around in bends it does so reasonably well for a car of its size. Not a sports car by any means, but it can be thrown into bends hard.
The V6 however you cannot throw it into a bend at warp speed. I can immeadiately tell there is a massive lump of iron under the bonnet adding a significant addition weight to the front of the car. Compared to my 1.8.
This weight of the V6 makes the Lag II want to plough on in a straight line.
That additional weight however gives the V6 excellent traction in a straight line. Even with the TCS turned off, i cannot get ours to break traction under full power.
