I used to have a 335i with 446 RWTQ and it was fun and all, but the M3 is a totally different experience. It now has a raised rev limit to 8,600 RPM and dyno'd last week @ 575 wheel. It feels like a motorcyle where it doesn't have the "shove" in the back like a turbo car or a big displacement motor at the initial hit but the G forces build to the point where you feel like you are in a vaccuum from 7,000 to 8,600. And the wheels spin at each shift. Euro MDM helps with less intervention but keeps the car from spinning out.

The experience is awesome. Puts a smile on my face everytime I wind it out and I'm not getting tired of it.
