How did you like the 1M anyway? Feel different/better than your 135? Was nice meeting you!
It's an export plate, who cares :P You can do the whole picture if you want.
1M is definitely different! I was too lazy to post pictures, but it DEFINITELY does not drive like a 135.
I'd say it's more in between an M3 and a 135. The suspension, transmission and clutch feels M3ish, but the acceleration feels like a turbo (obviously), but MORE! I didn't like how I had to shift like a maniac in order to get power out of the M3, so I went with an 1M = lazy ass daily driver.
The day I went to the ring it was closed. I had to turn in @ frankfurt in the afternoon because it was @ 1200miles already. So I went back to the ring with a rental Mini Cooper. Damn that was fun, pushed the cooper (not even s) to the limit. I'd have to agree, stick shift NA is a HELL of a LOT more fun on the track, just not so in the streets...
