Best Loved/Hated Feature about your M3

I know we like our cars but list what you like/hate the most about your M.

1. Engine Start Up/But having the HAPPY YELLOW LIKES-I HATE LOLOL
2. Most people dont even know the difference from a 3 Series to a M. I just tell people "O i just got a 3 series" lolol
3. After she warms up shes always ready to get wild.
4. Down grading from a M45 with a V-8 and nothing is like the sound of the "RASP".
5. Realizing that straight line 0-60 makes my heart pump but nothing is better than carving the corners.

Mein Auto: 2004 M3 6MT
Love: feel and sound of SMG double clutching on downshifts during spirited driving

Hate: rattles, squeaks, and misc noises, particularly when on OEM 19's in the cold

Love: fiddling with INPA, DIS/GT1, and NCSEXPERT

Hate: worrying about and waiting for the SMG pump to go + the rear end to emancipate itself whilst driving on the highway

Love/Hate: prices going down quickly ushering in new/different group of enthusiasts

If you think an E46M3 is a downgrade from an M45 we have nothing to discuss. Go back to your appliance. Your toast is ready.

@geargrinder. They are two different machines. The M45 was the Japanese sleeper that was a muscle car. It had a lot of luxuries. I lost Navigation, voice guided commands, Cooled seats. I gained more sport features, better gas mileage, quicker car. I feel like the M cars are a drivers car. If i want to punch it i can and if i want to travel and get 30 miles to the gallon i can do that too. I am pissed about losing two cup holders though.
