I had tons of conflicts with choosing this car. First was if I wanted a fully loaded e92 or stripped e90. Lease rates ended up being awesome so I went with fully loaded. Then I went back and forth between alpine white and mineral white. Found a mw m3 on a lit 40 miles away so I drove to check it out before I finalized my order and loved it (another reason I chose e92). Then there was dct vs 6spd, I had an e39 m5 at the time and the transmission was TERRIBLY notchy when cold, but I learned to live with it. Then I realized I would be commuting from oc to la often so I figured I'd give the dct a test drive and I was blown away. I did the pcd and driving the dct on the track made me realize I made the right choice, and it really completed the dual personality of the car.
Glad with my choices, but wish they had a full leather option on the m3. I miss the suede headliner and complete leather dash of my m5.
