Hi Guy's As a race car driver I can tell you: The most impressive thing about our M cars is the Active M Differential. More info on the Active M Differential here Active M differential with displacement motor (right) in cross-section.
Official word of BMW on the Active M Differential: The Active M Differential optimises traction and driving stability when changing lanes or accelerating out of curves, when taking curves at high speed or on roads with uneven surface texture.
Traction is optimised via an electronically controlled device that reduces the difference in revolution speed between the rear wheels.
- Throttle: Efficient | Sport | Sport Plus So for instance: If you want to have a nice loose car for day to day fun driving and/or drifting the best way is to have your Throttle setting set to 'Efficient'.
