Took my R32 out in the hills north of LA (Angeles Crest) along with my buddy who has the BMW 1M pictured. The 1M is incredible; I had no chance of keeping up even when he wasn't driving it flat out. We found some nearly-abandoned roads and really let loose with both cars. I drove the 1M and it's probably the fastest and overall best car I've ever driven. The grip feels never-ending, the power is ever-present across the entire RPM band, and the steering is extremely tight and responsive. The turn-in is so good; this car just feels like it wants to be turning. My buddy takes it to the track and has R-compound tires he uses for that but on this day it was just on street tires. It's also bone stock currently, but he has plans to add more power soon.
Driving the 1M made getting back behind the wheel of the R32 feel like I was driving an 88 Corolla; super-slow, way too much body roll, and everything just felt looser. I still love my R32, but damn.
