Driven one? Phenomenal car. My best friend is a track instructor with the BMWCCA. A first-timer brought one out to play at Limerock and my buddy got to instruct him in it and later drive it on the track shortly. He bought one that night.
I've driven his extensively and I've got to admit, it is damn near perfect. If I lived in an area with closer access to good roads, I would have bought one instead of the 1LE. But with the significant amount of highway I have, I opted for something with a bit more grunt that could be fun on an on-ramp (doesn't hurt that I'm a sucker for the sound of a clean SBC).
Ye I've driven one and it is a great car for what it i but im not a fan of cars like it. Just my opinion i love muscle cars the 1LE just made my love more cause I love road course more than drag
