Well designed, discrete, neutral, does not attract undue attention
Not yet tested to a full extent on my M3 under review, bust as previous BMW owner I enjoyed minimal component failures after many years of ownership.
Rigid, reliable, linear power delivery, flat tourque characteristics, amasing sound, perfect match with the DCT gearbox.
Very good feedback to the driver, combines comfort with performance
Very high standards of safety as evidenced by crash tests, independent reviews, and actual / real-life crashes as posted by various M3 post forum members
