Perhaps BMW could do a firmware upgrade to allow changing the default settings if every owner bugs them enough.

Looks like my car with 19s. Everything else appears to be the same. Congrats.

I am taking delivery of a DCT AW this week and that S3 thing has just bored me! I was always hoping that both power and gear mode would revert to last with only DSC changing to ON after a restart. BMW fix this quickly!

Here's a tip for anyone using the Corsair drives. They are slightly too tall to plug into the usb port and close the console lid, but you can trim the rubber loop off the top with a knife and then close the lid no problem - saves having a cable in there.
good tip! I've ordered the 16 gig Corsair, will trim it like pubic hair!

Congrats! What a beautiful car! I am partial to Space Grey.

Thanks for the comprehensive review. I enjoyed hearing your opinions comparing the 997S to the M.

Matt, nice review and comparison.
Excellent color choices on both the M3 and 997S. IMO, Cobalt blue is as good as it gets on the 997S.

I don't believe mine is doing this.
What if you don't have Tech Package (no M-button)?
