Believe me, I read it the moment it came out. It was scathing, but very inconsistent with just about every other review out there. It was almost personal which raises suspicions of its validity.
I'm not giving it creedance as I have owned the N54 engine before in my 335i and I've driven the 135i with great joy. I've owned and utilized the M3 chassis. Put all that together and it has to be great.
Not only that, but every 1M owner on the boards have been glowing in their feedback including those with both the M3 and 1M.
Randy Pobst's "hatred" of the 1M is rooted in something else.
