It's comprehensive but also quite factually incorrect as it seems they haven't done their home work on the car before testing it.
They say it hasn't got launch control and when a facelift is done this should be implemented for example?!
That could explain the poor 0-60 time.
Either that or the tester can't drive very well as its also the only comparison I've seen against the 135M where that has come out top on acceleration tests.

To me this is a good thing.
I think your launch control quote is from within the main review, have a look on the last page (from memory I think it is as I've not got the mag to hand at the min) to the right of the page and I'm sure the quote there implies that there isn't launch control at all.
Sent an email to the reviewer just to clarify the launch control question. Hope he replies.Berttie21 said:Really disappointed with the review, after specifying an a45 that is nearly £50k I was expecting it to continue to trounce the m135i, makes me wonder if the other reviews had remapped a45's or something wrong with the car? Clearly no launch control but didn't think lc would take 1 second off th 0-60? Also it was slower on the track than the m135i which is really strange based upon all other reviews/ videos? I expect MB will be onto autocar for some edits!!
