    Just bought a lovely black E90 saloon with 48k on the clock, guessing the facelift in manual is quite a rare beast? Coming from a Golf R which was incredibly capable but ultimately a bit dull. It felt like a Golf with a powerful engine, which it is, whilst the M3 feels much more special

    It's got loads of options which I'm still figuring out so I'll probably have questions for you all, thinking of keeping it standard, at least for now...

    Really enjoying it thanks. Feels a lot more special than my Golf R. I've driven a new F80 M3 Comp Pack and didn't really enjoy it, it felt overpowered by the engine whereas in this the power builds nice and quick but more progressively. It also sounds great, better than the F80 and much better than the Golf - I don't like the contrived pops and bangs between gears in the modern turbo cars.

    I like the interior too, and it feels solidly made especially compared to the rattly Golf, and much better than the Subaru's I had before that of course! If there's one change I would make it would be a modern infotainment system with Android Auto for Waze and Spotify/Tidal, but I'm working round that by having the phone mounted on a wireless charger, streaming using bluetooth. The sound in it is fantastic though - Individual Audio is excellent. It's not about the out and out bass, some with a dedicated sub will go deeper, but it really does sound good- again better than the Dynaudio in the Golf. The solid interior also helps, not rattles even with music up loud.

    Overall loving it, looking forward to a trip to North Wales over Christmas and some better driving roads.

    Nice, glad you're enjoying it! Yes, I've heard the individual audio, it really is quality. Very crisp and loud...

    I'm after an E90, going to hold out for one in silverstone blue. Can't decide on dct or manual though I need to have a drive of both.

    Very nice.
    I sold my E92 earlier this year for a Golf R. Biggest mistake ever, but I’ll be back in another E92 as soon as sell my current car.
