That goes without saying, but this is the intermediate group with people with a decent amount of track experience on the same day with the same conditions. Sure, some of them weren't as good as me but as you pointed out, I'm "slightly above AVERAGE" at best. Chances are, the M3 CS actually IS a decent car that can keep up with other "better" cars even in the hands of someone as inept as me. The point is that the fact that capabilities of the M3 CS allowed me to even beat anyone speaks to the qualities of the car: fast, not too heavy, powerful, predictable. These are the things that I would not get in a "run of the mill Toyota". I understand that you were trying to make a point by exaggerating and being dramatic, but you are wrong in this case. Tell me I can beat my PB at Big Willow in a Camry and I'll get rid of my M3 CS. Frankly, this discussion is ridiculous because now you have resorted to insults. You sound like you've been around the block–I expected a much more thoughtful response.
