19s are going a bit far. You are starting to get some serious rotational inertia and the tires have significantly reduced flex.

On the article, I loved this section:

Kline wanted to see how well he could make the 1 Series handle, and he was especially keen to see what could be done with the 128i. At 3,208 lbs., itís the lightest BMW sold today, weighing 165 lbs. less than the 135i and carrying 120 fewer pounds over its front axle.
