If anything the 3.0 litre cars with the shorter stroke motor and boost delivery (no intercool) lends itself to a different driving experience. I agreed the boost on later cars is more progressive but the acceleration is equally aggressive due to the higher torque. The production numbers will always be in the favor of the early cars. Rarity and exclusivity is important to collectors. I find virtues in both for different reasons.

Hearing that 'other drum' being constantly beaten (just forgot to mention having a 930 VIN or not) has worn tiresome. Enough already.

Well said on all accounts.
