    It's funny to see that the RS has the lowest weight/hp.

    Also interesting to see such high 0-60's from the Subaru and Golf. Maybe tires?

    Subaru went to 19" wheels in 2018 and their straight line times have increased over the 2015-2017 versions as the EJ257 isn't a strong engine compared to the competition and the extra mass of the wheels seems to have taken a toll. At $50K USD for the RA I think it's time for the STI to be put down like an old horse. As for the Golf R that's a pretty slow time but the manual versions have always been considerably slower than DSG. If they put a DSG in this competition it likely finishes first in acceleration times. Type R is a pretty amazing performer considering it's FWD and should be at a disadvantage to these cars.

    The RS sure starts slowing down a lot after that initial launch - the CTR would be pulling on it past 60/70 MPH. It also has by far the worst breaking distance. In that group you don't really seem to get much for that extra $5-15K except AWD.

    I dunno about the tires, all the cars were on a max performance summer tire though. My guess is that the Golf R did not have DSG to keep things consistent, so it got a lower 0-60.

    Any updates @heavyD ?

    I ditched the idea of the CTR early this year, the 40 year old me cannot justify the cost when there's a plethora of performance vehicles in used form at that price range.

    Thanks. It's a bit small but I'm used to smaller cars. Biggest surprise so far is how good the factory exhaust sounds. Sounds like a domestic V8 rather than a turbocharged 6-cyl.

    did you opt for the M performance exhaust, imo it's worth every penny

    Did you get the vanilla M2 or the competition?

    Great choice. What a tough decision! They're both awesome choices for different reasons. That's a coin flip. Pictures? Stick shift?

    Sorry to disappoint you but I got the vanilla M2 because it was a good deal. Competitions started arriving in the fall and to be honest I would have got a discounted M3/M4 over the M2C at MSRP as it's a little on the high side.

    Are you daily driving it? How tall are you? I've been considering an M2. TIA.
    Dear Sriracha Sauce, you're the only thing with a cock on it that I want in my mouth.

    I would test drive an M240i long term ask them if you can take it for the afternoon.

    I never found the interior space in the 2 any worse than the 3 or 4 for the driver and front passenger. Rear passengers is a completely different story.

    I'm <6' so not tall so I'm good with sunroof but from what I have read there's no issues unless you are in the range or 6'3" or taller and then you best take a long drive to see if you are comfortable as said above.

    I personally wasn't comfortable in the M2 at all. I mean my M3 was fine - not necessarily comfortable but didn't make me feel claustrophobic but that's how I felt in the M2. I am 6.1 and should be about 220-230 lbs. I don't even know how many suit pants I ripped getting in and out of my M3's in the past lol. I feel like if I was skinnier, perhaps 200lbs or less, M2 would have been much better.

    I was the same size as Shak... I find the e90 roomy! Haha... and I even came from an LS430... found the interiors very similar between 3 and 5 series for space
