its actually not though, i taught my girlfriend how to drive manual on my M3, she picked it up in 10 mins and didnt stall once. I suspect the duel mass flywheel makes it very forgiving when learning to engage.

Driving stick is the same whether it's a geo metro or a porsche 911. So learning won't change no matter what car you have.
As far as an m3 for your first car I wouldn't. You sound incredibly immature and you will crash it. There's far better drivers who have crashed much slower cars.

I think OP is trolling because first he says he must buy a German car, then says he may lease Japanese car. Ban?

My M3 was my first car, and I taught myself how to drive el Manuel in it. Clutch is fine.. But if you buy an M3 and don't learn how to DIY, I'm sure we all know what kind of shitty M3 you'll be driving.

BUT, because you said this:

This.

And I think driving my E90 328 is harder than the M3 because E90 feels sooooo disconnected from driver. Besides the, sometimes, notchy shifts, driving the M3 feels awesome and is extremely easy.

Not true. The more torque a vehicle has the less likely it is to stall if you dump the clutch without enough throttle. In a semi truck you don't even need throttle to get going, you just ease of the clutch. Also synchronized and unsychronized transmissions shift differently. Tho you aren't likely to see an unsychronized transmission in a car unless it's really old.
