M3 ZCP - Hands down, BEST BMW I've ever driven

So I have a 2008 E92 M3 6MT and I had the opportunity to drive an amazing machine this weekend... The 2011 BMW M3 ZCP.

My god, I want to switch up to a '11 ZCP soooo bad.

Well I heard the ZCP can toast bread in its engine because it runs slightly hotter with all the extra hp.

I really dont know where to start.

First off, the extra power is instantly noticeable. I know its only 50hp on a 3600lb car but you definitely feel it.

I didnt notice a difference in brake size when I was looking at the wheels but you surely feel the power of the bigger brakes when you drive it hard in twisty canyons. Nice addition.

Third, The lower suspension, matched with the aggressive EDC settings just blew my 08 non-ZCP M3 out the water.


And last but not least, every non-ZCP M3 that I passed on the road and that met with that day was just like "WOW, DUDE... That thing is fookin RAD!" There was even this one guy who got all pissed about how cool the ZCP was and that he didnt have ZCP and everyone was like LOL WHY YOU MAD THO?
