    The reason you get more ‘push you back in the seat sensation’ is purely down the RWD power train.
    The R deploys it to all 4 wheels as you know so you don’t quite get that feeling of being pushed along the road as you do in most RWD cars.
    Ive owned E90 M3 and C63 and know from experience of what you describe. Having said that the R in launch is pretty savage.
    I went high power FWD to RWD to now 4WD as I think at these power levels 4 WD is far more effective in UK climate and as a daily driver.
    On limit driving with the right driver yes RWD can feel more rewarding but even from my own competion experience where not all Chris Harris.

    If he wants an M2 good on him. I think Stage 1 R would still be faster than stock m2 in every condition. Especially off mark and in poor road conditions. 
     
    I think its a good thing for the R when people can compare stage 1 tune to M2 and cars like that. I know here in Aust m2 is $100k+ and you now could get an R grid edition for $50k, I'd go that path and put 5k into it again for stage 2 mods with DSg/ECU tune with RSB and have faster car in every condition and save $50k in process but that's me. 
     
    At $100k I'd get the rs3 sedan hands down and go again stage 2 on that for cheaper than M2 and not even worth comparing what the performance difference would be.

    You joined this forum and trolled.  You bought an R and settled down. You’ve sold it and to bmw and trolling again.   
     
    Keep going and you know exactly where this is heading.

    Actually it might be as it's less power than a 140i which isn't better than a R as it can't get it's power down!

    WoW guys
    never had any of these warm homely comments on my Merc or Clio forums, LOVE it 😍
    got my house, family, 5 fantastic grandkids
    60+ still working and enjoying my cars, just swapped my A45 for an R
    Bricks and mortar always the priority but hey enjoy life as well, family first and the toys keep me smiling everyday, 
    Grandkids love the cars
    Just too much crap can happen as all the above comments confirm
    cheers
    enjoy

    So Mrs Col has had a new 140i M Sport shadow edition delivered for a week's test drive. 
     
    Took it out yesterday in the rain and quickly brought it back home as it tried to kill me.
     
    This morning in the dry I went for a drive again and I'm torn.
     
    Engine is so so smooth and the sound is wonderful. Also steering weighting is lovely however, and it's a fairly big however, it really struggles to get the power down. 3rd gear in the dry on a straight road it's trying to push the back of the car faster than the front and it's mildly scary. As a track toy I'd love it but I don't think I could live with it every day...
