    looks nice.

    shame about your dealer experience, been disappointed in my dealer too but like you say, they just won’t get a repeat sale and also won’t get any services too.

    compard to imprezas – yes, smoother power delivery – but get it mapped or mountune and that sorts that out. becomes a much more aggressive car. i’m finding its a grower, had m135i before this car and RWD to 4WD has been a bit of a learning curve, especially with THIS 4WD set-up. still not getting power on early enough and still backing off mid-corner to balance the car…which really isnt necessary!

     

    enjoy it, its a nice machine.

    @comedysi- yes FPM375 is definitely on the cards, probably by the summer, so looking forward to finding out the difference it’ll make to the car : )

    I understand what you mean about coming from a Rwd car to 4wd. I work for BMW and drive them around all day, so am very familiar with how they feel close to the limit. But this RS just feels so planted, that I need to keep reminding myself that it will stick (even in the wet)¬†and I can go a bit quicker out of the corner lol. It’s a learning curve really, but a very enjoyable and satisfying 1 : )
