New Ride!

Test drove the 6mt M3 sedan three times and I could not get used to the soft clutch (still an awesome car though). I had a 2009 Mazda Speed 3 that had a very heavy clutch (it ruined me). Went back and forth and then drove the DCT. I actually like both transmissions but went with the DCT. So far so good!

This forum is a great resource!

congrats! Love Alpine White.

That side view of the car makes the M3 really athletic looking

Congratulations and Welcome, what a nice way to start the new year My last M3 was a Alpine White, great colour, I traded her for a 2012 LMB Metallic only because I've changed my mind and wanted a fully loaded one from the last production year of the V8.

Safe Travels ...

Congrats. Good luck.
At this point gentlemen and ladies it may be appropriate to form an Alpine White Club.
