I like both FI and NA cars. I swapped between them many times since 1989 when I got my first FI car after a couple of NA cars. However when we get to NA engines of the S65's or S54's calibre there is no contest for me, I prefer NA. I'm looking forward to buying the F80 but not because I think the S55 is going to be a more fun and pleasurable engine, instead it's the updates to the chassi, lowered weight and more modern look and feel. Mostly though it's because I like the feel of something new after 3-4 years, except if it's perfection. The E90 is close but doesn't have the look of perfection like some Ferraris and Porsches. My 1999 Ducati fits, it's perfect in all senses to me and I will never sell it.

My rating at this stage before having driven the F80.
