Rick the ride seems smoother due to the longer wheel base. Definitely the pick up is more compared to the 135i due to the V8 Double VANOS vice the N55 Single Scroll Turbo. I haven't played with the "M" Dynamic Mode yet since I still have a few hundred more miles of break in. Based on the M3s that I test drove prior to buying mine, once I engage the MDM it definitely will take it to a different level. I should have the pics we took at the Welt uploaded soon.

Alright guys, had a senior moment!!!! Most of you all have test driven the M3 so you know what engine it has. As far as the ride, it does seem smoother.

@ Nick --gave you an eye opener

@ Rick -- I will say that the 1M is nice. I will have to leave the trip as a tentative for now. My father has talked about coming over during that timeframe. I will still follow the thread and let you know one way or another. Also, a nice way to celebrate hitting the half a century mark.

@ Dave --you have to keep me straight so don't hesitate to let me know when pull another senior moment

No problem, Nick. I have those moments too!!!!! If my M3 could talk, it would probably tell me to go get screwed for insulting it.

The M3's with the V8's are amazing cars and definitely handle better than the 135 buuuuut a 135 with bolts ins with still walk an M3 with bolt ons.

I'm actually in the process of thinking about what to do after deployment... Keep the 135, get an M3 or get a 1M. As appealing as the 1M sounds they can't guarantee a delivery date and I don't want to miss the June event.

Hahaha sounds like its time for a little parts shopping Rick!!

I should be back just a little before the June event. Probably just enough time to install brake and suspension parts.

We have a little garage the should be ok for storing the car thru the winter.

Nick was BLITZ'd (photo radar)... the ticket has to work its way thru the system. I don't think he will know for three or four months from now. That is how long most tickets take to work their way thru the system. And then even then... he will have to fill out a form explaining who was driving... and then it will be another month or so before he knows how much to pay and where to leave his drivers lic. lol


PS: lets hope the machine was out of film!
