M3 -> 128 Thoughts

I just dropped off my E90 M3 to get its 1200 mile service. Granted, I have not been able to really ring out the engine yet on the M3 but the loaner 128 I have is a lot of fun. Even as an automatic, it has a lot of kick. It seems to handle very nicely and it definitely "throwable". I am pretty impressed with the 128. It would be a great second car to have. I would consider taking both the M3 and the 128 to the track and trading on and off.

I drove a 130i hatch (available here) for a few laps on the track a month ago and was very impressed with its performance.

yeah! i do consider the 1 series alot of fun cars, I thought about it myself... but for a new 128i, I cn maybe do better picking up a used 135i for close to the same cost as a new 128i... also thought about a used mini-S

The 130i hatch in Mexico is different than our 128i
I feel the hatch is more fun to drive its very small and nimble

PS how was the Earthquake

Out of curiosity, what are the major differences besides the obvious. Is the hatch stiffer? Also, is a 130i the same thing as a 128i engine wise?
