My point of view :
0-100 is a matter of performance
100-0 is a matter of safety

Safety first!!

I was going to vote "Don't care" but gave it a second thought and voted for 0-100-0.
There is no use of going fast unless you can stop in time.

And I hope nobody finds out the hard way, the importance of 100-0.

Too me a car 0 - 100 - 0 is more important then just 0 - 100, There are cars like Corolla which are fast till 0 - 100 but when it comes to 0 - 100 - 0 they lose out badly.

Its funny that manufacturers boast about 0-100 in ads but they don't display 100-0 :(

# Will I be able to achieve the 0-100 capability of the car I buy ? Chances are nopes. Those are best left for test drivers. Even they differ from magazine to magazine
# Will I win a traffic light race everytime since I have a car which is a second or a half faster than the one next to me ? No ways, coz a lot depends on driver skill, available road, condition of car etc.
# Will I need urgent braking from 100 .. can't say .. but it would be good if the car stays steady and comes to a stop quickly.

I really don't care much as long as the car feels fast and has
adequate stopping power. I have always tried to ensure that the brakes on my vehicle are in good condition .. be it a bicycle, bike or car.

[SIZE=2]For anything that can do 100, i would prefer to know 100-0 first. That is because i am required to come bak home as a single etity, and that is more important than having to do 100 faster than the other guy.[/SIZE]

0-100-0 is most important.... practical and yeah safe....

no point driving like ur tail's on fire... you have to stop before you kill someone.... good brakes and tires are as important as power...

honda city had always had very good 100-0 time ... the old one was awesome in its class ... dunno bout the new vtec ... i can assume its good ... but the EBD would have helped further ... sad its not an option when u shell out that much.

I dont get it !! To be 100-0 .. you need to have been 0-100 first.. so if you never been 0-100 never think of 100-0

So Iam occasionally 0-100-0

For me its definitely 0-100-0, speed can only be enjoyed when it is controllable.
