Thank you.

I haven't had M3 for too long (one month) and I owned 335cpe for 5 years. To put it shortly: Immediately M3 feels much more sportier in all aspects. You can immediately tell how much r&d, engineering, and attention the M division put into it. From steering, suspension, engine, materials, brakes, transmission, sound etc. the balance is just incredible. BTW the tq at 2k rpm's is plentiful, for daily driving. M3 is "tuned up" 3 series by the ///M and they really did an amazing job!
