You've done all you could. Its his turn for the initiation of young drivers, albeit in an M3. But in all seriousness the m3 is a grocery getter if the driver wants it to be. If he pushes it, that's on him. Maybe he'll just go over a curve and do a little damage and that'll teach him to appreciate what he has. The car is pretty safe, and the dsc is amazing. I know there is a chance of serious harm, but its more likely he'll lose the car and not himself.
