Why purchase a special edition - Lime Rock in my case?
Of the new M3's available close by - around 10 cars - this one looked the best in my eyes.
Exhaust, orange paint, black wheels, black grilles, nav, sound + no sunroof
was as close as I could get option-wise w/o having to wait.
The performance of DCT sealed the deal after a test drive!
Is the car going to be worth more? Probably not. I bought the car to drive, not to sell.
I do like the exclusivity of the 200 total + not seeing many fire orange BMW's.
The DTM Edition would not have been in the running looks wise for me.
Was a member of the NSXCA (NSX Club of America) + looking forward to meeting other owners & learning more about the M3.
For me it's another benefit of ownership.
