M3 cold start sound

I just got a E90 M3 2012, love the cold start sound. Is there a way of making this idling sound continuous instead of just a couple of seconds?

How did you manage to buy a '12 e90 M3 considering BMW didn't make any?

no problem, follow these steps:

1. start when cold.
2. drive 3 minutes.
3. stop car, get out.
4. wait for engine to cool down.
5. start when cold.
6. repeat.

Sorry I think I should have explained. In my country the cars have a build year and a model year. Mine is 2011/2012.

No, just have a low tolerance for silly questions. And this is me being polite.

Yes it's possible - but it would be a very foolish thing to do. The secondary air pump is for cold start emissions purposes only.
