+1 about getting desensitized with the power.
I've had several "extremely" high hp cars (1,000 hp) and I wasn't expecting the M3 to really take their place - I just wanted something that I could daily drive and enjoy more than just for nice weekend events. So although it's not crazy fast, the M3 is just so balanced that it actually performs better than you begin to think it does. That is until you get in the family suv cross-over - then you get a wake up call and it's soooo nice to get back in the M!!
