I wish there were 10 things that I did not know about my M3!

Stuff like this always amazes me..... especially the guy who made a post about discovering the handle inside the trunk.... Seriously???

I guess I am in the category of people who studied and learned about the car before buying it.... not after.

Mine has these same tiny people too. Is this of concern? Does everyone experience this?

Try turning off your car and stay inside for 10-15 minutes. The car starts recalibrating and all sorts if sounds come from everywhere inside.

I tried everything to get the car into neutral w/out having to start it - I usually stick a foot out and Fred Flinstone it so that I can apply tire dressing to the tires. Well I failed so I started her up, put it into reverse (DCT) and pop, goes into neutral. Being a brand new to me used car I thought this is strange. After four attempts I began panicking thinking my DCT just failed.

Had to shut the door for reverse to stay engaged and apply tire dressing to the last 4" of tires. WTH?!

hey dont knock it, I drove this car for almost a year before I found out the back seats fold down with a lever in the trunk. I dont haul stuff in the M3 so I never cared to know. I always assumed the seats were fixed upright. ;-)
