F20 1 series review

disclaimer

http://http://f20.1addicts.com/forum...d.php?t=558683

I'm don't care for the hatch at all. It looks like a Jetta. Nice upgrades though they've predictably made the car bigger and heavier.

There's also a video, but without subtitles so you have to speak Dutch. Advevo does the driving ;-)

What's the transmission on that E92 M3? I couldn't believe 1M could pull away at higher speed.

A few remarks;

1 Speed wasn`t that high at the end, maybe around 100-120 km/h

2 Andre is a well known Pro-Driver, I`m just an amateur in that respect

3 Andre did step on it just a little bit early, or I just a little bit late

As I did drive both cars I would say that until 200km/h there will be no shocking difference, after that drag is a serious componant and the M3 with obvious more HP will walk away.........

...and the morons at CNET.com are back at it...

http://reviews.cnet.com/coupe-hatchb...xt#reviewPage1

When it comes to writing, these guys are all about could'a and not should'a.

I can't even begin to tell you guys what an idiot this reviewer is. First off, he compares the 1M's ride to the 911 Carrera GTS. Uh...ok...there is a price difference ya know.

Then he complains that the fuel-mileage is "un-sportcar-worthy" at 20.1 mpg.

He then spends an entire page focusing on the interior amenities and mentions nothing about torque. In fact his entire review is based solely on horsepower. I don't even think he put it on a track.

I don't even know why I'm posting this, other than to prove that the one dissenting opinion (from an consumer electronics website, no less) has been written by a person that clearly has a single-digit IQ.

It's a wonder he can breathe without a reminder, let alone master the qwerty keyboard.

Not only did he not mention torque, but the guy was not able to fully turn off the traction control and was driving all the time on MDM...he just couldn't figure it out!! What sort of reviewer is this?!

Sorry if this is a repost, but Steve Sutcliffe of Autocar posted an interesting blog today:

Is grip mutually exclusive from grin?

The cars involved in this grip contest include Porsche 911 GT3 RS, Nissan GTR, Audi RS5, Noble M600, Ariel Atom Mugen, Renaultsport Megane 250, Ford Fiesta, and of course the BMW 1M.

Some interesting results:
  • GT3 RS (with Cup tires) beat the GTR off the line in the wet.
  • M600 beat both GTR and RS5 in wet cornering.
  • GT3 RS beat both GTR and RS5 in dry cornering.

The 1M didn't win any of the categories, but this is what Steve said about the 1M:

What was, was that although the BMW 1M did well but not brilliantly across all the tests, subjectively it was declared the outright favourite by our test team. Fact is, we simply had more fun extracting the various numbers out of the BMW than we did in any other car overall.

So although the answer to the original question is ‘no’ – big grip and wide grins are not mutually exclusive – there is at least some kind of distinction to be made. With all its electronic driver aid systems turned off the BMW was/is an absolute riot to drive – and the fact that a Nissan GTR can run right round the outside of it in most corners makes not one iota of difference to that in the end. Yet at the same time, the GTR itself is – for some though not all, it must be said – an utterly intoxicating car to drive, albeit for slightly different reasons than the 1M.

The addition of all the massive wheel arches, lip spoilers, aero mods and the so-called Air Curtain front spoiler helps not at all. This car is the last revenge of former BMW styling head Chris Bangle. Jeez, put a flag over its head and drive for glory.
