In my opinion it is.

The drive more than makes up for it, though.

Now, I know that the surface of the Rig is infamously choppy, but I think the idea of a road car's suspension being too stiff for a racetrack is laughable.
I know German car companies like to put overly-stiff suspensions in their cars, but this is a little silly.
Even though the little Renault has (almost) a 100bhp deficit?

Interesting.

I'd still take the Bimmer. Altough I could almost buy to Renaults for the price of the 1er...
