Yes, I did traded the M3 for a Mini Cooper S. My plan is to seperate the M3's 2 personalities to 2 different cars. Mini as a daily, and something else (not decided yet) as a track car. Although Mini will see some track duty as well

I have my Mini for 500miles now, and I'm still in break-in period, and it has shitty all season run flat tires... BUT, I swear to God, it is more fun to drive it in the city than the M3. I used to take freeway onramps at 60mph in the M3, and Mini can do 50mph easly with all season runflats.. It is more agile, more responsive, and the manual tranny is amazingly smooth.

Exactly. It is amazing fun to be able to use the car's potential. I couldn't to this in the M3 in Seattle... I have the Mini S, and I'm not intending to do any power modes to not ruin it (more torque steer etc).
