Too early but here is my 1st impression!

Vehicle
2011 BMW M3 2dr Coupe (4.0L 8cyl 6M)
Review
I got the 2011 DCT coupe few days ago. Too early to give any objective opinion, but here is my first impression. Perfect look, won’t change a thing. Nice driver seat and cockpit. The M button does change throttle response and sharpness dramatically. You can drive it as a mellow C class Mercedes on 7th gear at 40 MPH going to Starbucks, or as a crazy beast in 3rd gear at 80 MPH merging onto a highway. Power is too much for the street, needs a track to enjoy it. Get used to shifting at 4000 RPM cause it doesn't feel right shifting before that but enjoy the sound. Take a c shaped exit on 70 MPH and life will never be the same. Tried Audi S5 twice, good car but M3 is in different league.
Favorite Features
This car wants to be driven in SMG. Once on automatic it feels more like a nice Infiniti G37, but then why did you pay $30K more? Saying that, I have to say that gas mileage on SMG will be much worse since you will basically be shifting at min 3500 RPM. So forget about gas mileage and enjoy your M3
Suggested Improvements
I can open the windows and the moon- roof with key fob but I can’t close them from the same key fob, I would rather have the other way around for faster exit . Back seat is roomy. Idrive isn’t complicated. Don’t expect to find an M3 with just the bare minimum, they come loaded unless you pre-order it.
