Smart summon is a great feature and I'm sure it'll get better over time. I've tried is a couple of times and both times it was flawless. We all need to remember that it's still in Beta and that we, as drivers/owners, have the ultimate responsibility with features that are not full releases. There are certain things that the car allows that are not for all occasions, for example, self parking. Great feature but could be a bit slow and if you've got cars on your bumper already it's probably not a good time to engage it. Same for self driving mode - excellent feature, but know your car and it's limitations and take control yourself - if you're in gridlock and need to change lanes you know that FSD will make absolutely certain that there are no perils to interfere in its success so it will take its time, do don't expect the car to do it for you and just do it yourself.
At times I think we forget how fun it is to drive the M3...why should the car have all the fun? Take control and enjoy!
