    Default Stage 3 vs m140i

    What does everyone think would be quicker in a straight line?

    140i would be faster my mate got 135i on a 14 plate auto one and that can stick with my stage 3 .get one of them 135i or 140i and stage 1 remap they go to 400bhp but they do just look like a std 1 series don't do it for me

    If your mates car was manual do you still think it would stick with you?

    Pointless comparison. Rwd more power v fwd less power.

    Different classes of car. I'd not think about it too much, you'll just depress yourself

    Just be satisfied that you can keep up with these new super hot hatchbacks with a stage 3. But that's all. Eventually they'll leave you for dead. Lol

    Had a stage 3 Astra, now a m140i

    M140i wins hands down

    Wouldn’t worry about it too much.. as others have said it’s a new breed of Hyper Hatch vs a car around 10 years older..

    Engine is larger with newer and larger turbo than VXR, gearbox super slick semi auto vs Manual and finally RWD and a trick diff vs FWD there always gonna get that power down better too..

    You gotta remember though, it’s a 1 series, apart from the dual exhausts it looks like every other 1 series and even if you buy one second hand it’s still 25k for a 1 series..

    BMW might be faster but the vxr is a more engaging drive.for me these super hatches are soulless and boring.vxr looks much better too
