Check the links below ... DC from Cape Cod has a web site called the doghouse and has most of the M3 magazine reviews on there. Most suggest the understeer is certainly no worse than e36, some say its less. Some note differences depending on tire size (had more fun with the 18"). Also note earlier posts in this forum mention that CD never turned the DSC off for the entire test. DSC simply won't allow anything other than understeer. It's doing what it was programmed to do. Turn it off, you can get all the oversteer you want.

If I can get oversteer in a FWD wagon when I want it, I have a hard time believing they can't do it in a RWD coupe with 330+ hp without "driver heroics". WTF does "driver heroics" mean anyways? They managed not to soil their pants or something?
