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

I'm looking forward to adding some big power in the spring/summer, and it looks like I'll be in good company.

I'll certainly be looking at some good 295's for rears. Feels weird shopping for summer tires so soon after buying winters!
