No offense to you M groupies out there, but I found the M way too soft & to move around on its suspension way too much. I'll admit the M doesn't understeer quite as much as the 2.8, but the difference isn't enough to write home about. I don't know whether things are different in Europe.
I figure anyone who's serious about these things would want to modify the suspension whether s/he got the 2.8 or the M. So I went with the 2.8. Once you add a few options, it's not really much cheaper than the M, but I very much prefer its more understated styling, and it is 200 pounds lighter too! ;-)
