Apart from the interior, I'd go for the old one every time!

Interesting about the gearbox not being made by ZF in the 135, I didn't know that.

F40 is lighter, more comfortable, has better brakes and better interior, but I still see it is a significant downgrade from the F20. I like the video. It answers most questions I had.

I still want to test drive the F40 to make up my own opinion about it.
