That said, I don't think you could tell the difference unless you drove them immediately back to back of one another. While it is very good, the engineer in me has to nitpick at the fact that it is a slushbox.
I know they are geared a bit differently too, and the ZF8 has a very tall final drive for fuel economy. While this is nice, I'm not sure I can be sold on the ZF8 transmission.
Then again, I'd be more interested in the M2 than this car.
Agree with that... an M2 would be amazing. That's at least 2 years away probably, enough time to enjoy some quality time with an M235 before upgrading
