Try lowering your rear tire pressure 1-2 psi as well.

Some might say to be more patient on exit, but we all know that isn't fun at all
Oversteer is way more fun than understeer! I don't track my M3 much so I haven't played with pressures yet. I just notice that I have to be a lot more mindful of what my rear end is doing in the M3 vs the 330. The 330 behaves much better.
