I just got back from testing driving an M3 comp. Long story short the car is fast without a doubt but it's bigger and feels bigger than my F80. Doesn't look that bad either in person compared to pics online. They had a white M4, tanzanite M4 and oxide gray M3. M4s were sold already and they all looked good just bigger.

Saw your post on G8X forums, thanks for the insight! Have you driven ZF8 or M-DCT before? If so, how does the ZF8 in the M3C compare? I appreciate that everyone can interpret gear shifts differently - so any detail would help me visualize as I've driven countless ZF8s

No never driven either so I can't compare as both my F80s were manuals and really every car before that has been a manual. However, it shifts quick and I didn't notice anything negative or bad about the shifts or shifting. No clunking or delayed shifts that I could discern.

Also regarding the weight gain...the car moves regardless. Meaning it's fast on the street whatever it actually weighs.

Looking back at the pics it simply doesn't photograph well at all. I'm not saying it's drop dead gorgeous in person because it's not. With my car parked behind it did appear to dwarf it by a fair amount.
