I'd proffer that you didn't drive the M3 anywhere near hard enough.
Unlike big-cube yank V8's, the V8 of the E9x M3 has a deficiency of torque. As such, one must drive it very hard to get it singing to maximum level - it is for this exact reason that, driven at 75%, a 335d will be a big shape in the rear view mirror of an M3.
