It is very enjoyable. BMW have managed to make a car that is both a better daily driver and a better track car than the E9X was, further expanding what the M3(4) is all about. I reach speeds 10mph faster on the back straight of our local track that what I did in my E92 (146mph vs 136mph), which isn't negligible. I was also able to beat my best time by 0.5s on my first time out, which is quite telling.

However, even if the engine is much more potent than the S65, I do find the S55 lacks a little soul. It does not give me the feeling that I am driving something special every time I hop into the car as the S65 did. But paired with thr MPE, the S55 does sound decent enough.
