Same same on the M3 but you should only miss the lighter weight and maybe the DC-T transmission. But once you've had your F10 for a little while you will come to accept that the power is surprisingly comparable, and the paddle shifts are close, but the room and the comfort of the F10 (particularly the luxury seat package like ours) are things that you will never want to walk away from again. I challenge you to go back and sit in an M3 after you've had 6 months in your 550 and you will find it hard to be seduced by that smaller car again (unless of course you're less than 6'4" like me).

Mate, I love your F10. It looks great. Enjoy.

Well said.
I had the exact same experience coming from my beloved e92 M3.
