Yeah, mostly impart that it's been so long since I've felt it with low miles. I had forgotten what a stock M3 felt like until yesterday, and this morning's drive.

Its a complete night and day difference with how smooth the SMG shifts. My only regret is ordering a diff before Matt took things apart and confirmed it 100%. I figured it was more common the backlash was bad than axles/driveshaft, but I atleast suspected the driveshaft should be replaced by now.

Can't complain overall. It's been a great car to drive for the past 8 years now. Hopefully I'll be done with its final build and move on to something new by December.
