I owned an e92 M3 DCT for 2 1/2 years....and it was a great car. Having said that, by no means is it the best car made out there (IMO).

I went to a F10 550i M Sport 6spd because I was quite frankly fed up with the M3's ultimate lack of low end torque, somewhat harsh ride and terrible fuel economy.

I chose to go the Dinan Stage 3 path and save 25k, but the M5 is a great car for what it was meant to offer. It is not a track car. 99% of the people that choose to own this car are never going to come close to its limits on the street. If you dont like the steering, braking, sound or power delivery...dont buy it.

Just remember, opinions vary.
