I've had the M3 bug for almost three years now and finally pulled the trigger on a 2010 M3 DCT coupe this past weekend. The car has 41,000 miles, Carbon Fiber roof, along with the Navigation system, heated seats, new Michelin tires, etc . The car's condition was pretty much flawless with one prior owner and a clean carfax. I purchased it for 44k.....which I'm hoping was a decent deal!
I had never test driven an M3 prior to purchasing this car, but do have to say I am blown away by the difference in feel/power coming from a 328i.
The thing that has taken a little getting used to is the way the DCT feels as opposed to a regular automatic, to me it kind of feels like there's a slight hesitation upon initially taking off from a complete stop, kinda the way a manual transmission can feel. I have't tried it out on M mode yet, I'm still searching on here for more info on how to use it properly.
I'm a newbie to the M, and look fwd to learning from all the knowledgeable members on here.
