Thumbs up Finally got an M3

I just picked up a 2013 alpine white, fox red extended leather M3 coupe with DCT, competition package, premium package and heated seats. If the sun ever comes out here again I will get some pictures taken. I'm sure you have all seen a stock white M3 though.

I'm coming from a 2011 335i. I loved the 335 but this is a totally different car. It has exceeded every expectation so far. I'll be doing my research on this forum during the break in period. Then I will install a few mods, exhaust, black wheels, and some carbon fiber bits, it's a lease so I can't go too mad with it, Thanks to everyone here for all the great information.

Chuck

Edit finally got a few pictures not great but here they are. There are some outstanding pictures on this site so I have some work to do in that department.

I was shocked how well the EDC works, comfort is actually comfortable.
I was worried about low end torque, it has plenty. I read that 335 was a lot better in this area, and I think I'm someone who likes torque, but I'm very happy with the way the car accelerates.
I was not expecting to feel much difference in steering, and I do, it has better, heavier feel.
Just the overall feel of the car, I'm sure some of that is just having a new car, but the car feels good.
I love the sound under acceleration, can't wait to get the performance exhaust.

EDC comfort makes my passengers a bit nausous b/c they get a floating feeling when the car hits a bump on the highway..

acceleration: you're in break-in peroid, wait until you can rev this car up to 8300, then let's talk about this vs the 335i. the supposed higher torque in the 335 is from the turbo kicking in, not from that whopping 2 extra lb/ft of torque.
