Again - when you become more brief and less precise with you answers - I'm loosing your intent; definitely a language barrier :)

Well, you surely noticed that the simple and straightforward question of this thread (M235i or 435i) has been hugely modified and biased while the discussion lasted, as I decided to purchase the 300...

But - considering the topic of this thread - doesn't it work the same (more or less - not sure about the natural tendency to understeer in M235i vs. 435i) in both those...

Now I don't quite get any of your 2 last posts. Correcting understeer with the right foot is something obvious which I used everyday when driving my old good E46 330i (heck - even with the xDrive...

Hmm... No matter M235i or 435i, I will sooner or later install LSD - but more to stop worrying about oversteer :) And to never miss xDrive in my current F10, while putting all that torque to the road!

My 300 hp Golf R is AWD with DCT, mind you :) I bought it on purpose - to make the M235i tempation less seductive, and the 435i with PPK and Adaptive M-Sport Suspension a more obvious choice as more...

With mine it was the other way around, which I can only explain by the fact that the F10 being my first car of this size, I had to learn it and only after some time started driving it my way (i.e....

I fully agree. I'm against changing anything the BMW engineers designed with lots of effort and R&D $$$. The same applies to putting spacers and/or using much wider/more offset rims in order to get...

Which is more of a driver's car: M235i or 435i?

Haha - good question. Of course it's not, but in the type of fun car the Golf R is, it's more than adequate. And of course I'm keeping my 528xi for long, relaxed trips:)
