very well said. i always look for cabin noise, handling, ability to eat potholes, FE, luxurious interior etc.

0-100 is last of my conerns (just hoping that it will not act like old diesel trikes , I don't see any of the modern cars disappointing me with the 0-100 numbers per my need).

A car that can do 0-100 quickly and cant do 100-0 in real quick time is crap...coz then u speed your way out of the world...so 100-0 is important...

but for you to count 100-0 you have to get to 100, so 0-100 is also important...

so 0-100-0 is important for me..

0-100-0 without any doubt. I love the adrenaline rush which takes me to 100, but I would surely love to stop my car as fast as I climb upto 100 kmph! I love the good braking on a Honda City V-tec!!![FONT=&quot][/FONT]

i never thought of 0-100-0.

At present my car responds to my accelartion and braking needs quite fine. I feel if u have all data of 0-100-0 it wont make much of a difference - it all depends on ur judgement. if that grey matter responds with a 1 sec delay then all 0-100-0 is only on paper the rest is history.

btw this 0-100-0 will be very different on wet / oil slick surfaces.

I would like to change my vote from 0-100-0 to 100-0


In india 100-0 will decide your life/death more often than in any other country.

In US you have deers cross the street, which can result in serious accident, but what is a deer in comparision to our Buffallos

well, for me too, the 0-100 is far more important! the 100-0 thing can be controlled once u get the hang of the car, and with some better rubbers!

a true judgement can only be made on a 0-100-0 basis and as much as 0-100 being so important i think that 100-0 is equally imp although it is not often ppl take this in account

Well, isn't Mtrs proportional to time in the 100-0 case? i.e. the more time you take to stop from 100 to 0, the more distance you've covered..

Default 100 - 0 matters s lot in country where more cows cross the road than pedestrians.

0 - 100 is great , but it should always 100-0 should always supercede it coz in India traffice is a menace . If u are doing arounf 140 on highways we are still living just bcoz od Gods graze .In a land where more cows cross road than pedestrians ,we simply need a car that can handle as good as a Porsche and brake as well as Enzo FXX. Now acclerating like a veyron or remember the Y2K bike powered by a helicopter turbine motor with 2 gears ? , comes only after !
