Yes huge power loss with the M3 from the 4.4 tt beast. That's why I couldn't do it in the first place coming from the F10 M5
Exactly. Like you stated in your OP, the neck turning must be substantial.

The m5 is a nice sleeper, but man, when I saw the GC in the wild, I had to slow down to appreciate it. Looks so good- plus alpine white is always an awesome choice on the ride. Can't wait for the pics!

Yup... Exactly my feeling every time I test drove M3/M4 no matter DCT or MT.

The MT in the GC might be even more rare. Tanzanite plus canyon. As you know, no CP with a manual. Unless my guy on the inside can get that fixed between now and production time, which should be soon....

I don't have the CP (didn't want it) but all the GCs I looked at here in Houston HAD CP, so we must have em all.

I have the competition package 343s but no CP or CBs.

Maybe you chose the 20" rims and paid for that?

Canada may have different "standard" options than bmwusa.

Mind you- most dealers order their cars with the 20" wheels. It's almost uncommon for one to go with the 19".

But when you order it- and go through the whole tracking process- if you don't select a wheel choice, standard, it will come with 19s which are pretty gross.

Not sure if it differentiates in Canada though :

I know frozen paint out there costs only 2k where out here it's 5k, but I believe your guys m6 is a bit more expensive (msrp)

You are likely right ... When I placed order the choice was standard 20 inch in brushed finish or black ($500) or the comp pack 20 inch with comp pach only ... And yes our cost is higher ... $157 k Canadian on order
