Replied to your PM, but to answer the question for anyone else considering this. Yes the DSC does seem a little more trigger happy. It is not that much more intrusive. However, if you are exiting a corner and your steering wheel still has some input and you get on the gas to much or early it will kick off earlier. However, I noticed that on a straight line if I power shift and the tires spin it lets you spin a little still.

Yes it will be a bit more sensitive. This is why it is important for those who would like to keep their DSC functioning correctly (this includes DSC and MDM) to keep the overall diameters between front and rear wheels close to the factory specified diameters.

Well I went for it and ordered a set. I currently have 255/35r19 and 275/35r19" Continental Extreme Contact DWS's but I really prefer the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus. I only put about 400 miles on the DWS's, great tire just prefer Michelin. Thanks to everyone for the info.

You went with all seasons??? Why bother going to a wider width? Those tires are so mushy during the summer, you will have no idea of the car's potential. Maybe if you want to drive them in the winter. Or maybe if you cruise the car and shift at 3k RPM - of course then I just say, why bother owning an M3. Your money ahead buying a 335.
