, god i thought i talked b-llox
If thats the best you can do, then you are talking b-llox.
The GTA's are great cars BUT 250bhp through the front wheels doesn't mean that they will go round corners, far from it, I found that both the 147 & 156GTA just couldn't get the power down.
With a Q2 fitted, I haven't driven so I won't comment.
I remember a Top Gear show with a 147 GTA against a VW R32, the 147GTA was a joke when it came to going around the track.
Out of choice I would have the GTA but I don't wear rose tinted glasses and say that GTA's are the best drivers car.
The GTA's will hammer the 120D in a straight line, but unfourtunately most roads have corners.
Yes the BMW 1 series is a pig ugly car and there is no passion and loads on the road and the ride is sh*t e and expensive for what it is but dynamically it is a great drivers car.
Many people pass comments on here about cars they have never even driven, when they should be keeping an open mind, go out and drive one in anger and then pass comment.
