I've had my M3 for a little over a year and have tried out all the features - except. I got a live exercise yesterday.
Two lines headed south were merging to the left into one. I was in the right lane, signaled to move into the left lane, then started moving to the left after checking my mirror. I saw a pickup in the left lane that seemed far enough back to me. I got about a quarter of the way into the left lane when collision avoidance kicked in. It sounded an alarm and jerked my car hard to the right as I was still steering left. The pickup roared past; apparently he floored it to beat me to the upcoming single lane.
If your M3 sounds an alarm and jerks the steering wheel, don't fight it. Let it do what it's supposed to do.
