My '03 E55 AMG was a true "lazy" driver, and all I had to do was think about passing someone and it was done. The M3 requires a different driving style, and is more involved. I look at it as the difference between flying a fixed wing vs. a helicopter.
Yep. And for me, after 6 years of the GTO and the lazy torque, I'm stoked to move to a car that needs some work to move, and rewards with an amazing soundtrack :-)

Grass is always greener, I suppose
