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.
agreed, N54 power band peaks at 5500 RPM, no need to take it past this, and shifting at this range puts out best performance
