I like my E90 M3 as a comfortable cruiser, but it is no rocket ship. You really have to work it hard to make it go fast.
I've never seen any traps as low as 110 for any M3, E90 or E92 6MT nor M-DCT. I have, however seen data for them trapping at 115. There really is no equity between these cars in the 1/4 mi, times nor traps. However, 0-60 is going to be a drivers race as Bruce alluded to just above.

By the way we have a very different definition of hard work. What an absolute delight the S65 is above 6k, I try to get there as often as possible.
