Mein Auto: BBI 512,05 M3,Gl450
Spent a few hours banging around some favorite mountain roads. Learining how to push the car properly. I think the low rev tourque was faking me out because it always pulled so well from 3000rpm that it then felt flat. I can now see how running engine at 5500rpm in the right gear and then hammering it from there makes car a lot quicker in general, alive, and more fun. Its really a two mode deal.

Its like playing an instrument, the m3 seems to like the tune where it is being run in the 6-7500rpm range, I needed to reaclibrate my senses as my other car is really strong anywhere from 400-6700.

By the way how to you double declutch downshift this thing, the brakes are soo boossted and sensitive that its hard to balance brake and gas, or should i not bother.

Car also seems much more balanceable with power in regular as opposed to sport mode.
