So after much discussion with fellow TCLers and TFLers, I decided to get me the first FWD, Transeverly mounted engine, quasi-CUV BMW. I've had RWD based BMWs before this, but this one takes the cake.
Introducing Uber Wagon's 2020 X2 M35i.
-Faster than 302hp rating suggests
-Most powerful 4-cylinder in BMW lineup
-Looks and feels angry all the time
-Steering feedback (yes, steering feedback!)
-Small turning circle
-Limited slip differential (first front LSD from BMW)
-Exhilarating sounds can get tiring
-Rides stiffer than Focus RS
-No manuel option
-Looks and feels angry all the time, scares small dogs and children
-Ginormous blind spots yet no blind spot detection available
-Slight understeer at the limits (very slight)
-Backseat has no headroom
-Cargo space is laughable
-Identity crisis: is it a hot hatch or a bonafide CUV?
Uber Wagon trades in Audi S3 for an updated and more powerful S3 with a backpack.
I am so excited. This car is fun to drive, good on fuel, and has exclusivity.
Since this is Uber Wagon's post. I'm gonna make it a poll! Let me know what you guys think of my new ride. I'll post more pics.
