It's amazing. Compared to the 328, it's a totally different experience. If I knew what I was missing before, I wouldn't have wasted so much time on the 328. hah
You can literally be sitting there completely still, and rev too high on a launch, and the next thing you know your back end is sliding around with your front tires not moving at all. It's crazy power.
And first gear is pretty much worthless on this car, hah. At 20mph, it's at 4k rpm. To keep it from looking like I'm showing off from high revs, I have to start off, and shift almost immediately to 2nd (around 10mph).
I also took a ride in a Active Autowerkes supercharged e36 m3 last night.... yeah, FI is coming. No doubt.
I love it.
