Unfortunately you seldom see 128 times for whatever reason.
Well there's a reason for that lol

Pretty sure I know who youíre talking about in jersey.
The 135i is tuned and a quick car no doubt but the C6 absolutely blows its doors off just as your Vette would.
Thankfully all the usual stuff that went wrong with the 1( so far) was covered under warranty. It hasnít been a money pit car by any means and quite reliable. knock wood.

It isn't even close between the two. Not knocking the 128, but the M3 can as easily fit 285s square as the 1 can fit 255s (probably easier), the weight between the two is similar, and with just bolt ons the E46 M3 makes well over 300whp, compared to what, 240-250 on the high end for the 128?
