Good article and I have to admit I agree with a lot of their observations. I had previously driven a 1.9 loaner from my dealer when one of my M3's was in the shop. I thought, great car, awesome balance, just needs more power. When the ///M came out I didn't hesitate to trade my M3.

Last week, I helped a friend buy a 2.8 and I drove it for the first time Friday night when we went on a date. My impressions? If all I had to choose from was the 1.9 or 2.8, I would get the 1.9 and put the blower on it. The 2.8 just didn't *feel* right to me, it feels more "floaty" than the 1.9 and ///M do. The ///M has the tuned suspension to help compensate for the skewed weight distribution. I did not feel as in tune with road as I did in the 1.9 or the ///M.

The car loves the road...the driver loves the car...
