it's more noticeable and often between 1st and 2nd especially when you roll and stop and then step on the gas to move again. the car seems to be "confused". almost got a van hitting me because i was waiting to turn on a green, and then rolled a little bit and then stepped on it and it would not move and the van was flying toward me!

But possibly due to this actually being a 'budget-developed M model' (missing the highly developed or unique engine, carbon roof etc), the improvement isn't as large over the 135, as the M3 is over the 335?

Just thinking out loud....

And at no point am I suggesting this won't be a great car. It really does look like a ball of fun. And neither am I a 'M1' diehard either...
The only car BMW will rebadge M1, will be a mid engined super car. Such as this Concept vehicle.

If this is the picture you were talking about then nor do I and neither do I see much of a duck tail boot/trunk lid but the picture is not great quality.

Right hand side looks slightly different to the left.

Chances are it's because the mules had the black flares on the Sedona Red body, the contrast makes it look wider than it really was. Or they could have settle on the right size flare.
