The day to day driving of the 1M is just overall more fun than a E9x M3. It's the torque that makes you drive with a constant smile.

The only difference that I am hoping for is that the torque is there at all times on the track for the new M3/4. With the 1M it can kind of come on quick and keeps you on your toes. If the torque delivery is slightly smoother, then we have some improvements over a tuned 1M engine. Just my thoughts.

At any rate, I'm looking forward to the real life comparison!

Torque is great but it's becoming an obsession for many. It's highly overrated IMO. I have both type of cars now and both are great. Their different but one is not better than the other.

Again, my personal opinion.
