Enjoy the car and don't let your "friends" force you into being their taxi. Matter of fact, never drive anyone in your car who you don't absolutely trust.
I also got a M3 for my first car (albeit a '99 vert with 56k miles on it and about 400 less horsepower than yours) and found myself constantly bombarded with buddies asking for rides and trying to talk me into putting on a show for them. Be safe, remember that the car is a responsibility and a gift that your parents trust you with.
Thats very good advice. Taking people around in your car is a big liability. Imagine if you crash and they get hurt, they may take legal actions against you. Why? Cause your a young, inexperienced driver. They are discriminative circumstances, I know. But save your parents the trouble.
