2018 BMW M3 CS Review and Price

Stock my F80 competition package has 444hp. BMW however was very modest in this sense and the car is actually getting close to that at the wheels. I really enjoy driving this car and I could go on forever about what I like about it. This is an exceptionally engineered race car.

The only things I dislike about the car are:

– You’re unable to set default drive settings. You’re stuck with an Efficient engine mapping, sport suspension, and sport steering. You can of course modify the M1 and M2 buttons to whatever combination fits your needs. However every time you start the car it will be Efficient, Sport, Sport until you select one of your M1 or M2 configurations.

– The only way to fold the side view mirrors in is to press the button. There aren’t any secret key commands to do this, or settings to fold in/out on lock or unlock. You can of course code the car to do this, however it’s not a stock option out of the box.

– You can’t full screen Apple CarPlay.

I’m being extremely picky with these items. The car is truly amazing. I just found these items a bit surprising as I drove the car for the first month or so.
