No, the 128 is not a 'better car' than the 135, but it is the 'better car' for me. I think people sometimes confuse 'better car' and 'better car for me'.

I am willing to trade the performance for reliability, and pocket the difference. For me, the 128 does one thing better than the 135 --- it challenges me to get the most out of it.

But, had there been a 135 at the dealer instead of the 128 I bought, I might be telling a different tale.
