I also have an Evo IX which is sort of the total opposite of the Porsche, in a way. It has 4 doors and a boot and you don't care where you park it. While its just as quick and a lot easier to drive than the porsche, its also too hard to live with, it has a very low rent interior, no GSP, no bluetooth, crap sound system and a ride like they forgot to put springs in it, but, by god its fun.

Anyway I'm hoping the 1M will be a good compromise between the two, easy to drive and fun, while at least having 2 back seats and a boot, as well as being a damn site cheaper.

PS: I was ready to buy an M3 sedan for the same reason, but when I heard about the 1M, I couldn't resist it, and it was cheaper as well. Now having read all the reviews I'm thinking it was a good move.
M3 may be a better choice if interior is a priority. 1 series's interior is spartan and of quality on par with Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, which are both great but not luxurous.
