I have one of the radio buttons to toggle day and night view. It's amazing to me that it doesn't switch automatically with the headlights.

The coupe is 450 lbs lighter than the convertible. The coupe is definitely faster and would give a 911S a run for its money. The 911S is still quicker though.

Try driving the car with the Power button OFF...the clutch will engage much slower and I'll bet it'll take off smoother. I hate the Power button as the throttle is no longer linear. 50% throttle...

I'll bet the new M3 will offer an optional (probably $3,000 extra) Enhanced Premium Sound for better "roar" of the engine. People will say they have an extra 30 hp because they got the stereo upgrade.
