    Yep, on cold start only the left exhaust outlet is open, once the exhaust has warmed up both sides are open.

    Hilariously a 120d is about as quick as that amazing sports car that is the Toyota GT86 :D

    I'm talking about M135i...120d only has one exhaust outlet, but a twin pipe exit.

    Hilariously a 120d is about as fun as getting locked in a room with hungry alligators

    And I don't see a 120d that will hit 60 in 6.4 sec?

    You mean 7.6 seconds. So my mistake, the 120d is actually materially quicker at 7 seconds.

    Manufacturers figures only please, not pub talk from owners clubs.

    Its a petrol vrs a diesel. For a start the diesel doesn't even pass as a car and secondly diesels are always quick 0-60 but after that they have no top end and most petrol engined cars will win.

    It is a quite well balanced car and really great fun to drive.

    I had a type r and that was 0-60 in 6.6 seconds. Not the fastest car in the world but it felt so quick and aggressive. It encouraged you to drive fast where as diesels are just so... Dull

    Yep, the MX-5 is the same. On a track both are quick because they can keep the momentum in the corners. That is what makes things fast not 0-60 stats.

    You can have loads more HP but at the end of a straight the gap is only going to be a second, probably less.

    I hate the whole "stance" scene. Take a perfectly well set up car, make it terrible.

    It's certainly a marmite thing. I quite like it and it's not chavvy at all, chavvs wouldn't be able to afford it :D

    Stance is the modern version of Max power of the 90's, your gonna look back in 10 years times and just think wtf. much as the generation who lived the max power era do now!...

    It is chavvy, just as the max power cars that had equal amounts of £ thrown at them were! :p
