Got the 2012 35is, then sold the '08 E92 M3 with DCT.
The downshift in the 35is sounds better than the M3 and I totally agree that it's a driver error to redline the E89. Way past the power gain at that point. The Z does not handle as well as the M, but I can't say I noticed any difference in the shifting.
