              Just wondering. When Jeremy said that the bmw was the first hot hatch for 30 with rear wheel drive. Is he referring to the fantastic Toyota ae86

                      Why the Jeremy turned off the DSC and put the car in the Sport+ mode? Sport mode with DSC ON will be fine Ánd even faster in this weather

                        The BMW is higher performance than the VW that is not surprising. But in every other category VW pulls ahead. That’s why it’s favored.

                                                      I still prefer the 1M. So much more awesome, if somewhat less practical.

It’s like suddenly hitting ice, you immediately lose grip and subsequently control. Can happen in any car or bike
