Went from an MkV R32 with KW V3, anti lift kit, sway bars, Haldex V2 to a stock 130i. Apart from the uber smooth engine I can tell you now that the 1 series in terms of driver control and feedback beats any VWAG vehicle I've driven. Heavier steering needs a bit of getting used to but it sure as heck beats the numb and light econobox feel of VW and Audis. Clutch and gearbox are no comparison too. All I've done so far is disconnect the vacuum hose for the flapper valve in the exhaust but it gives me more of a thrill and connectedness every time.
