The clutch pedal in the m3 is extremely light; I was expecting it to be heavier than my 335's, and it is far lighter.
Another one of my main concerns with the m3 was answered. I was highly sceptical about the servotronic steering being less enjoyable than the steering in my 335. It is very light in normal mode, but feels nice and hefty in sport mode. Just seeing the car in person was amazing.
You were allowed to get the car past 5000 rpm! wow my dealer had to ask the gm to start the car for me, and it was only they had in the showroom so I couldn't drive it.
