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.

Randy Pobst's "hatred" of the 1M is rooted in something else.
I think part of the issue is that he can drive the car to its limits and maybe experience whatever flaws it might have. For most of us, we would not have the same experience because the car would be better than our skill at driving it. Anyway, just a thought.

P.S. He still liked the M3 but suggested it had flaws too.
