Well looking at your FS thread you put at least 45k into it to get 280kW.

With these N54 engines you can spend about 2k and get the same amount of power. Tune + meth!

Though I can't say I've heard of any 1Ms owners on meth. Not in Australia anyway.

Everyone is on this power trip.... Over 250kw in the 1M is really wasted as cant put it down to the ground esp on the track. Power needs to match the car's handling capabilities. Understand the drags are a different story... I gotta get out to the drags next month as never been!

I owned a 350z way back... Great torque, but no where in same league as an N54/N55. Fantastic handling though, better than the newer 370z

@Froop. I put in 12k to get a strong engine to take the punishment. The rest of the $$ was for other aspects. 10psi made 280kw. imo 280-300kw was the good balance for the car. Anymore and it is unusable

@Ian. No power trip here just after the balance.

Mate there is no way you are going to get an un-bias opinion here from 1M owners, they are going to defend there purchase. There has been bunch of arguments between 135 guys and 1M owners which was pure comedy. Conclusion is most 1M owners on here are menstrual. Buy what you feel is right for you.

I'm genuinely surprised at some of the comments. I would have expected a different class of owners on this forum. I reached out for feedback and was open about my reasoning, experiences and wasn't derogatory to any owners.

Anyway for those who have provided constructive comments, thank you. I will continue my research and see if the 1M is the correct choice.

Sorry Bud, but it all got a little too hard.............I was going to organise for you to meet with three of four of us and your response was:

"Would be great if there are more owners"
"I'm pretty flexible but I just need to work around some tight project delivery timelines so open to suggestions"

Last time I looked, we were trying to help you?

Anyway, no big, good luck.................maybe wait for the new A45 Merc, might be right up your alley??

Understand, Just didn't want to be douche and commit than cancel. My project go live date is the 5th of April and I'm working over the easter break to meet the deadlines. If you are ok I will drop you a PM close to the 5th and see if that works out.
