haha lot, we used to have this argument a lot!
my grandparents have been driving camry's for years, they have had about 4 or 5 of em. i also drove one for about a month when my last E30 was in the body shop.
and i hated it. all the camry's rolled like pregnant yak and accelerated like one too. i dont remember how the brakes were.
but like you said lot, its all personal preference. and the E30 is a bmw sport sedan (in bmw tradition), and the camry is a full size sedan (i believe) - they are built for different things. so i think its really a moot point. and a personal preference thing. so +1 to lot on his points.
on another note, i would say that most BMW's dont come with LSD, but was always an option and can be had with some hunting. and it seems lsd's are going the way of the dino. . .
