    Picking up a X75D on Saturday to replace our 2014 S85 (pre-AP, RWD), and I just now started wondering if the X75D will feel slower than our old car. 0-60 and 0-100 are listed as slower than our old car, but I also there was some issues with these numbers back in 2014 so I'm not quite sure if the numbers for our S are correct.

    So will this car feel slower than our old car? Someone suggested it should be faster to begin with, but that the S85 might have more power when you reach higher speeds.

    I had a S85 loaner while waiting for my 60D with broken FWD on delivery day. The S85 definitely pulls more at higher speed and feels faster than the 60 at all times.
