I'd be on the M135 so quick if it was available in the US.

I hope the M235 will be as appealing if it does hit the states....

Snore. Was anyone expecting anything different from the results?

I would've preferred to see an RS3, a STi and a Golf R in there instead.

Wow, good stuff.
It's funny how Ford was comparing the ST to the GTI, and supposedly the ST out did the GTI in performance. Not according to this race. Go back to your drawing board FORD.

While I love the GTI and prefer it to the ST, I believe the one in the race was the 35th edition GTI which has 230 hp and not the standard 200.

The M135i is not comparable to these cars.

The hatchback version will not sell in the USA. I like the versatility of a hatch, but it doesn't look right on a BMW. A wagon fine (although we don't buy those either), but the 1 series in a hatchback looks downscale....
