Driver difference Don't you think that our own Advevo would give a stock 1M a sub 8 minutes full lap? He sounded pretty confident when he claimed he and the car are capable of this and he did a 7.45 BTG time on a mostly stock car in the traffic. A driver like him also could give M135i a better time, no doubt about that. On the other hand, give Megane to Sport Auto and they wouldn't be able to get around that 8.08 time. My 2c.
