Another happy M3 newbie!

Great car- so much fun. I was against the DCT until I drove it and now I think it's the perfect compliment for an ideal all-around daily driver. Picked it up Friday and put 800 miles on it by Sunday. It's stablemates are already jealous. Now I understand all the enthusiasm here.

Thanks for the compliments. The Porsche is a standard '07 turbo with GT3 wheels - leaving soon (incredible car but the road noise made it a drag for trips and the turbo lag made it a challenge on the track- for me anyway). The M3 didn't have the carbon fiber roof because it came with the sunroof instead. I've been tempted by the M3's for a while and my X5 had a nail in the sidewall so while they were getting a new tire, they tempted me with this new DCT car. I'm such a sucker. I loved the smooth shifter and clutch in the manual and was reluctant to drive the DCT because I hated the SMG in my M5. A short drive later, I had to have this car. Very refined, fast, comfortable and fun.

Very nice looking car. Not having the carbon fiber roof, ironically, makes it distinctive. Congratulations!
