Yes, the 1M won out, but there is one weakness in almost every M review.
BMW is never the fastest in its class in a straight line.
I refuse to accept that somehow an M-car HAS to be slower to achieve good handling.
That assumption is complete misnomer.
No wonder BMW has such a humongous tuning and aftermarket cottage industry.
They're never the best on ALL points off-the-lot.
