test drove M3 at dealer today..

sedan/6 speed.....no EDC option....handling was very good on the turns...very good traction to the point of amazing...could not test comfort or sport but normal suspension was a very good compromise...i have a 330i sports and the difference was amazing.....smooth on highways...steering was fine although it was a bit on the lighter side but no complaints...car did not have the option for heavier sport steering setup in the M mode......easily hits triple digits with minimal effort so you need to be careful...very good accleration/torque even in 5th/6th gear....manual drove well but i will be getting the Dct ...

one thing both coupe and sedan that i did not like: you can see muffler underneath the rear diffuser up close and from a distance...seems like they should have done a better job covering it...

Can you elaborate on this? How come you could not test MDrive settings?
