Be careful as the M3 has very lackluster acceleration down low in the RPM band and you need to beat on it (rev it to redline) to make adequate power. If you floor it at 3,000 RPM don't expect the M3 to be able to out-accelerate even a min van. I find myself downshifting a lot to pass, etc. The motor is magic from 6,500 to 8,400 and it needs to be in this range if you want to go fast.
