Sorry to chime in here; I am sure h-manuk will give his answer but why would you compare the affect of a tune with the M button? M button just changes the throttle response, gives you a sharper, quicker responding car. However, there are no hidden bonus power there. Similarly, a tune will not necessarily give you any better throttle response but definitely gives more power and torque. Moreover, M button remains functional with Evolve tune which means that you can always use it with or without the tune.
"The mark of a great car is one whose overall competence exceeds what you should expect from its individual components and the 1M does just that", Chris Harris.
