But since my car did not confirm the enthusiast's expectations, been an 2 Ltr - there was constant negativity.
i agree i've seen enough ///M + 35i owners who bang on about it as if its the only true car worth own - but that's up to you to ignore and rise above (it's also simply not true), at the end of the day everyone is proud of their own specific car choice and some times people love to justify their own purchases publicly for a bit of self gratification... the same people probably still send Christmas Round Robin letters. Just because you happen to have the slightly pricier car doesn't make you a more qualified or deserving forum member - in 2017 it probably just means you have a bigger PCP deal
I have always thought f this as one of the nicer,if not best forum around.
As for the 2ltrs, many an owner on here over the years have had the 2.0&2.2 litres,and have had immense fun with them.
I still think the 3.0 is the best all rounder,in e85/86 variant,as they take less time to warm up from cold,compared to an M,and are I bit easier for commuting,if need be,and that's a car you can have fun in.
The M does everything that bit better,which is to be expected,but running costs are noticeably higher,for no reason,in my opinion.
But I have often said to potential new owners,that plenty on here have had alot of enjoyment on spirited forum runs,etc in the smaller engined ones,just that some of us like the performance of the bigger engined versions more.
