Congrats - we’ve got a 2022 Dark Iron Blue one. It’s a hoot to drive and “can” get good gas mileage.

Yeah I've got to work on that. So far it's been traction control off, sport mode, and run through the gears with the paddles. 😂

I had my dealer install a APR Stage 1+ tune. Adds a nice snap of +30hp and everything is still covered under warranty. It was a little spendy, but gets me through until the warranty expires. I’ll probably go Stage III and put a tune on the DSG after that.

I had an MK7 for a few years and almost always had sports mode on unless I was just cruising on the highway. Sports mode actually was better in traffic, less hunting for gears and more engine breaking.

I miss that car. Congrats.

Got rid of the 911 a decade ago, got into Toyotas, owned (3) 4Runners and an old Land Cruiser, and am on my 2nd (and hopefully final) Tacoma.

So I had a 2018 M3, which I liked very much, and would be happy to share my thoughts. Bottom line: do it.

Yeah, that's what most people say. Haven't driven one yet because I expect I'll fall in love, especially if I actually fit (6' 4").

I have an E46 M3 (Vert) and right now I need the extra room when I'm hauling the dog, the kid, groceries. etc. Hoping prices drop on these a bit over the next few years, which is when I'll be in the market.

Anybody looking at getting a new GR Corolla? Looks like you could have some fun in that little guy. :bananastoner:
