Rob can shed more light on the specific numbers but you need to drive a SC'd M3.
The power of a FBO+meth n54 can really eff up your expectations of any car but a blown S65 is just a whole new level!
Same experience here. I went from a well-sorted N54 to a stock S65 and thought it felt a bit soft up here at ~3500' ASL, although the S65 is clearly from a different planet (i.e. motorsports) in terms of overall feel and 'specialness'. My first E90 M3 was a 6spd with the ESS VT2-600 kit and the power was impressive but my current E90 M3 DCT with the ESS VT2-650 is wicked At last count Calgary now has more than ten ESS-powered E9X M3s and I have yet to hear any regrest.

Oh, big rear tires are a must! I drive my car exclusively with all 'systems' turned off and with 265mm rear tires it is seriously traction limited!

Congrats on the new car bigup
