Yes 12.0 is achievable with a M3 , only need DCT ,test pipes(400$) and tune (1000$) and you'll have 460hp ! Also , yes the M3 is missing a bit of bottom end torque compared to a tuned 135/335 but that's a minimal price to pay to get so much more in EVERY other aspect of the car , specially in the addictive high RPM range !! Have you ever seen a M3 owner regretting his 135/335 !!
Also my stock M3 manuel is perfect for daly driving plenty of power any time I want it , just don't be afraid to rev or downshift !!
