The trick is to back it in. No way I can go in forward on my driveway which is really not at all steep. There is just so little ground clearance in front.

They will scrape on slightly more than normal grade driveways and entrances. No real harm done, and they are easy to replace.

I think their only purpose is a slight aerodynamic one. They can put...

If you mean the hood air scoops - only the drivers side one is functional.

The passenger side is for show.

I wouldn't put anything on the functional one because you will impede the air flow.

I agree the spoiler is refined and subtle. As someone else mentioned they come standard on Canadian M packs. It makes the rear look better and may even be functional (not sure).

That is normal for a high HP engine as the cats settle in - especially in colder temps.

Try listening to an M3 in the first minute or two after start up.

I assume DCT with launch control has to be faster. BMW claims I believe a 0.1 second difference between MT and DCT.
