We've been through this several times in several threads. The car has plenty of torque above 2000 rpm thanks to its relatively aggressive gearing which its wide rev range allows for, but you need to use the pedal. Part-throttle response might seem weak, but why use part throttle if you want to go fast? Actually, the car has so much torque at the wheels that I think it is pretty much useless on the street unless you want to get arrested or kill someone. There are various comparison charts published on this in the forum based on actual wtq numbers. I agree with MVF4Rrider though as in it depends on what the basis for comparison is. Of course, there are cars out there with more wtq than the E92 M3, but that doesn't mean the M3 is low on torque or anything.
