more or less, but i was saying heavy as referring to power-weight ratios

a viggen would kill any E36 3er in straights.

I'm personally not a big fan of FWD cars. RWD seems to get much better response and tightens down to the road on corners. I'll drive my brothers GTI every once in a while, and sure, it corners alright, but it's just not like my BMW--or any other RWD car I've driven for that matter.

I have trouble handling well in FWD too, but I have seen people learn how to use the FWD to an advantage, especially in tight corners.
