    from reading the manual (my m235 is getting picked up in july), the launch control seems to be adaptive. The manual says that the 2nd launch should be better then the first - provided they were done in the same place.

    What's the point of these launch control systems? If it was my car, I would never drive it like that. I suppose if it was a lease, I'd drive the hell out of it, since I don't need to think about long term reliability.

    So basically the same performance as the Mustang GT. I know the 8-speed auto probably helps things, actually, but these two cars weigh within ten pounds of one another, both FE/RWD. The only place the GT's greater horsepower shows up is in the trap speed, which is 6.5 mph faster. The claimed hp difference between these two is 113; the claimed torque difference is 68...shows how underrated this engine is - typical German car...

    And this is the droptop...coupe is faster. Whoa.
