I personally do not understand this whole m3 is "anemic" "gutless" argument, at least when equipped with dct. With 7 tightly spaced gears, you spend little to no time below 2500 rpm. Ever looked at how quickly your speedo moves when u hit the gas? At any speed in any gear? Give it a try. The car moves better than my old 997 c2s pdk that had more torque and lighter weight.

I understand the argument with a manual equipped m3 but even then it's still not that much of an issue. I'd rather have a formula one derived high revving v8 with machine gun like throttle response, than a boring 335 powered 1m with low end tq which falls flat on its ass after 5k rpm. Those turbo engines just don't feel special.
