Yeah, well - of course I would, but F10 is a thing of the past for me. And frankly I enjoy the M235i so much that the only thing I miss is the cash I lost by getting rid of my 528xi so early...

Still no time for a photo session, but I can assure you the Golf R and the M235i make up quite a pair of hooligans!
