As mentioned in an earlier post, I am planning on getting a BMW in the near future. After some test drives, I will probably get a 3 series, and I am considering an M3.
To those of you who have driven both, how does the stick shift feel in the M3 vs 328? It is just as smooth and slick, or is it more notchy, similar to a 540? (Unfortunately the only M3 they had was an auto)
Also, how is the day-to-day livability of the loud grumbling engine noise of the M3 compared to the smooth and quiet hum of the 328? (Both engines sound beautiful in their own right)
Comments are greatly appreciated!
