Not to mention it takes about 15-20 to warm up the tires even under ideal temps. So unless Im cruising on the highway, i cant justify the extra power which for me, would get old with constant wheel spin. If I could manage the traction, it would be totally worth it!

And yes, my wheels are properly aligned and I have tried a dozen or more psi settings.
M3 is actually pretty good with wheelspin...has no low/mid range torque....its kind of hard to get the wheels spinning from a 40 roll.......you can manage traction with a blower, just get a good set of tires
