M1 is an E21 (almost a 1-off) and looks like this


and does not have any relation to the 1 series M. It's not like comparing a Pirelli to a 1.6 Trendline Golf. Totally different genus... :)

Potato is the correct spelling, not potatoe :P

Saying that... the Pirelli and trendline are of the same genus...Golf hatch.

I know, just continuing it.

I was saying that the E21 and the E82 are of different genus. And you're right the Trendline is a better car than the Pirelli :P There's a lot less lag...

Same N54 engine as the 135i right? except it's tuned, wider track, better aero, brakes etc?

I don't mind it :)
