Also what colours work best in your opinion - white is a bit of a no no for the UK - I was thinking either silver or space grey.

Is the V8 an improvement over the straight 6? I would also be very interested in typical economy returned when not driving flat out - if this ever happened

Thanks Mark

This is the 1st time BMW is using DCT on an M3. We are excited to know if it was really better than AUDI's DCT. I guess the M3 you drove was a manual, not DCT?

Also, if Alpine White did not exist....which is the next M-color ?

The V8 ! Does it sound like RS4, AM, Lambo?

OK one more. Brakes, how were the single pistons?
