I agree basically, turbo lag isnt that bad, but it was a compromise with the wifey, had to get a car that she liked and a 4-door car at that, not usually what i buy, but what can you do. Its really at its best on the highway, cruise at 70, step on it, and you are hauling really quickly. As i said, i really dont like the handling, but wifey has no idea of what i am talking about!!! It does the job when i want to pass someone though, or beat them away from a red light.
