Can someone recap the differences between this car and a standard 135 for me?

The Good
1. N54 from Z4 35is
2. M LSD
3. Wider track and tires
4. Alcantara interior and M steering wheel
5. Shorter steering ratio
6. Suspension components from M3
7. Better cooling
8. Body kit
9. No sun roof
10. Mechanical seats
11. No RFTs
12. Balanced
13. Faster
14. Key on the trunk
15. Interior makes the 135 look like shit

The Bad
Heavier brakes that aren't that good
Over priced
Lower MPG
Less potential without DCT option

& The Ugly
Crease with a missing air duct
Fake air duct in the rear
Cop magnet
Wheels are to big
Quad pipes are just a show piece

What am I forgetting? This would have such a dream if only it had 360-370 Hp..
instead it's an awesome car that is hard to justify over a CPO E92 M3 for the same money
OK, so get a 96 911 for 45k.
