Yea. The drifting is awesome! I love it so much. Love to watch the car bouncing on bumpy road that the front lip merely kiss the ground.

Yepp and the LSD is one critical piece in this car. Probably one of the most important differences with a 135 or 335.
+1 that's why I'm trying to buy a LSD right now!

I don't notice a sound turning at low speeds, I'm not OCD though like some people. I can confirm the exhaust drone at 2500 RPM, but it doesn't bother me one bit. It's a minor sound, but it is noticeable if you're paying attention.

So, I say you should get it if you can!

The car responds nimbly, but you just can't feel it as much in your hands.
I think boat-y and indirect are not the words you want to use. It's all relative don't you think. The car is nowhere near boat-y and indirect.

No sound when turning at low speeds here either. Drone at 2500 at highway speeds are check. ;-)

I noticed that too! Sounds really nice! I wonder if it is the end cans/true dual exhaust setup, that's pretty much the biggest difference, no?

The M5 ridicules 1M in term of acceleration, the GTS ridicules the 1M on track.
But the 1M offers something else, that the two other beasts can not replace...
We need a group pic!

"just for quarter of a second, you dont know for sure if those big front tyres have bitten and the car is going to turn in as desired, or whether they havent and youre about to run wide instead."


How can you time "quarter of a second" in your head?

Take the car to a track......time will slow down, and items in the vicinity will blur....

A quarter of a second too long on the brakes and you're out......
