Actually I wasnt trying to determine if it is or "isnt better enough" to trade up for it. Thats subjective, I plan on getting a 1M even if I dont sell the 135, and Im actually planning on adding even another car to the garage later this summer too (Ill decide that after one of the factory tours I take this summer in Europe).
I just wanted to know how the thrust, power, etc feels because everyone is ranting about it but I feel that those who go from a tuned car or even a car just running a piggyback with map 3 or 5 will be somewhat disappointed. I thought maybe there is a slim chance that the M actually will impress across the board and wanted clarification. This way I go into it with more realistic impressions.
I feel like I know the real answer, I just wanted to hear it from someone that experienced both cars first hand. In the end as I stated previously the point is moot because anyone with a piggyback or flash can just add that to the M and be back where they were in their 135.
