Forget these engine-wengine types . I'm sure MD is an euphemism for Hot young secretary or Resident supermodel or some such types. Enjoy teh Ride

If you are getting the Automatic, which is the most likely case.

The paddle shifts now have a different actuation. Usually its always pull, the right for upshift and left for downshift. But on the new car its, pull either paddle for upshift and push for downshift.

However a sport tuned car need not necessarily be ripped off to enjoy it. You may be able to comprehend the subtle experiences of the car speaking back to you through the winding alpine roads.

What a life to live! Vacationing on work, listening to music and getting paid for it and now driving a BMW on a road without speed limits.

I hope you also get to drive. Try and get your MD to sit aside and take your turn to drive first. Else if he really gets a high from the experience, he might try and make you sit passenger all along.

Have a great trip. And do post the non-car guy's review of an M3 around twisties without speed limits.

Have fun but

am sure the will be some small print on using the car

If you need time out, I am willing to become a temporary worker in your org and rename myself Sam Kapasi for a month. I might stuff your MD in the boot - more weight will give more tail out fun!
