My Ride: M-3 Convertible
Go for a longer race than a simple quarter mile drag. The turbocharged engine in the 135i makes substantially more torque at low revs (and at peak) than the M3, meaning that it will launch harder initially, so you need enough space and speed to let the M3 really stretch its legs. The naught to 60 and quarter mile times for the 2 cars are quite close.
