Maybe one day, M3s will be CVT. How boring would that be? LOL. Maximum HP all the time during S6 mode and you can have an "E" mode for maximum efficiency for fuel economy to prevent the gas guzzler tax.
I test drove a Toyota Highlander Hybrid that had CVT. It sounded and felt like the thing was constipated. Strain, strain, strain. I hated it! Bleh.
