Razor sharp handling and steering feel feedback. Completely predictable, neutral handling with slight understeer but can induce oversteer. Incredible amount of grip.
Smooth and powerful, high-revving V8. Linear powerband and deceptively "torque-y" especially at higher RPMs. Civilized at lower RPMs for day to day driving.
Standard with full curtain air bags. Despite being single piston break calipers breaking is phenomenal for street use and track use with upgraded break pads. Good linear break feel.
Sporty without being overbearing or "cheap". Distinguishable from non-M 3-series without deviating too much from the family.
Clean, great color options and leather. Ergonomic front cabin.
