How about engines ?

2 stroke - wants instant results
4 stroke - prefers a quiet life an happy to wait a while to get a result

optis - loud, brash and not afraid to shout about it
etecs - secretly loud and brash but pefer to be more subtle
verado - happy to wait - just not as long as others - so want that supercharged 'rush'
