    He's not wrong... sometime idling is too fast lol. Can always throw an auto into neutral though.

    What you can't do though, is slam it in 2nd or 3rd and do a full clutch drop to get all 4 tires rippin as you go balls deep into a snowbank sideways for traction. I've passed a couple people that way, with both AWD and RWD. Disclaimer: can end very badly.

    grasshoppers.

    automatic is just fine. push to N , and in SUBY AWD, 1st gear is 50/50.

    light touch is key in any car.

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.
