My jumbled thoughts. First, it looks awesome. Although it does appear to have a much lower redline than the M3 (looks like maybe 7100?). The new M3's high rev V8 might be more fun, or at least more fun sounding.
Also looks to have one of those electronic parking brakes. Not sure how I feel about that, having never used one, but it seems like something that is more likely to break than the traditional pull handle. I love the flat bottom steering wheel. Why do all MBs have that keypad near the radio? What is that? It looks like an old-fashioned in-car phone. I guess presets? I've never been a fan of the MB seat controls on the door.
I really prefer to shift gears the traditional way. I wish they made it with a 6MT.
