I enjoyed it - watched entire 15 minutes. Only 235i criticism was wish for better braking. Heavy criticism of amg transmission.

Just finished it as well, Held it's own pretty well when going up against an AMG. Most people aren't standing on the breaks half the time they are driving anyways, maybe upgraded pads would do the trick.

Looks like this video got posted on the news page after I got my thread up, so there probably will be more happening on that one.

Yeah, 15K (at least for that one) is a lot to shell out extra. They didn't even seem to make note of price differential in the comparison.

They mentioned it at the end of the video, but it was very brief and easily glossed over.
