I used to own a Honda Integra Type S which was heavily worked and I tracked it quite often (build thread)

As you can guess moving to the m3 is a huge step up..I love the combo of ultimate luxury but sportiness when u need it.

Some of the pros and cons I have experienced:
Pros.
Love the double clutch tranny (so smooth and quick and epic throttle blips on downshifts)
The S65 4L V8 revving to 8.6k (one of the best M engines ever)
fun in the sun driving with the hardtop down
so comfy for when ur stuck on parra rd but push the M button and the car transforms

Cons
Its so wide that Im petrified driving on parra rd
horrible fuel econ (I get 20L/100km)
Weighs 1.8 tonnes (although this is not noticeable in M mode)
Has way too many features that it takes forever to learn what everything does)


Specs:
2012 E93 Jerez Black M3 D-CT
Individual audio
CF interior trim
19" rims
(not sure what is else on the car is an option or standard)

Mods:
Lux h8 v3 (thanks to BMR)

Mods planned:
Plastip wheels, grill and gills to satin black
Gintani sport valved exhaust in ceramic black
Arkym CF front lip and rear diffuser
BBM LM diamond black w/ polished dish (in a couple of yrs as I need to save up lol)

Pics of said car:

I actually havent taken any pics yet lol..(will do soon and post them up)
Good choice, they get more addictive every day, I can't go a day without going for a blast. Congrats and enjoy
