Indeed, nice write up. Definitely noteworthy that this fellow waited to read other initial reviews to write his and that he specifically criticized the expectations and conclusions of others.

On an fairly unrelated note we have a verification here of BMW asking Michelin for tires with a bit (or a bit more) understeer. I had initially bagged on a fairly poor early review of the car that made this claim and cited this as a potential red flag to the accuracy of that review. I guess we can count this as verification that this was indeed the request and delivery from Michelin. Perhpas the chassis and suspension is really almost perfectly neutral and then the tires give the small understeer (which is the only way a mass produced car should be delivered to the general public).
