When he got back I was able to snap some pics of the car with the white protection plastic still on it. Initially I was going to take care of the paperwork and just get the heck out of there but they actually wash cars by hand so I was ok having them detail it. Took about an hour and a half to prep the car. I even got to take the trunk section of the plastic off. After I got home I felt like a kid on Christmas morning and couldn't really sleep so there was only one thing I could think of doing. Driving of course! I ended up putting 100 miles on it and really got a chance to mess around with the iDrive, MDM, EDC, and power buttons. Really love the car and am looking forward to getting to 1200 miles so I can really see what the car is capable of.
Congrats! Space Grey always looks handsome.

Hanging out with two of her elders 1000 ///M horsepower! The E36 missed the party. Some of the goodies have made their way onto the car, including the Texas Roundel, still more to come next weekend. Granted my pile of goodies wasn't nearly as big as duyh's
Just happy to have the car again
Even the Mummy wanted to see
Great garage pic

In any case, I want to thank Julie for this thread, it was like therapy for me, and all of you who posted pictures THANK YOU!! I just got home, and because its fall barely any good light to take photos, tomorrow I shall! again thank you all for the posts, and words of wisdom throughout the wait!

Major congrats!! Sorry again for the belated congrats.

Unfortunately, the trip lasted all of 65 miles before the car dumped what looked to be most of it's oil! Engine block was coated with oil too. Rather than risk driving it any further, the dealer sent a flatbed. Now finishing the trip in a loaner - Not the way I envisioned this day ending and still can't believe it. Will be waiting for a call tomorrow to find out what happened. Sorry for the buzz kill tale, but sharing just in case any others have had a similiar experience. Will update the Class when I have news.
4M, sorry to hear about what happened. How's your car now?

Signed off yesterday, about to get my production number.
Traded in my 2011 'STI.

AW 6mt ZCP.
Cf Roof

Got a "Striped down" version.

I love to drive, and didn't want all that other premium package stuff (yes luxury lol) getting in the way of the fun......Or maybe I didnt have the extra 10-15k to waste.
Congrats! I have a semi-stripped car as well. I absolutely LOVE it! I do not regret what I did not check off. In fact, I think I would have been happy with even less... the engine and the drive are just out of this world.

Got the car in record time as well, 6 weeks (which felt like 3 months

I love the M3 and couldn't find another option with it's mix of practicality, performance, and price. Below are the specs.
You will not regret your choice. There is something magical about this car. And now you will have the most sorted of all the E9X M3's. And the S56... to keep for as long as you want.
