Enjoy your car!
Yeah, I missed that when Individual didn't just say yes, it gave me a production date. Does BMW have CF grills and gills? I've seen the black.

Not really feeling the spoiler -- too small to mark it out in contrast, for my taste -- but thanks!

It's tough, the pictures just don't capture it.

I hope the wait isn't too killer. That was the hardest part of Euro Delivery.
Thanks! I'm thrilled (obviously)!

Also, what exhaust are you thinking? Do we need to have another exhaust testing meet? ;-)

Cant wait to see this beauty in person!
Diffuser quite possibly. Spoiler, probably not, at this point. Still don't know about exhaust. Would love to pull together another meetup!

I didn't name the color. (And I didn't write the FP headline, either!) But we'll see.

Yeah, I considered it, but it didn't grab me.

I agree with you skipping the navi. I have a 2007MY and the navi is seriously lacking and more of a distraction than a benefit on a car such as this.
Yeah, I think nav systems are on the same lifecycle as smartphones, not same as cars.

I've seen only pictures, but it looks to be more of a laquered look, less of a sparkly look.

So I guess you made the absolute right choice. Now regarding tuning and modifying it, I'm more than 100% against that decision because you're going to mess it up BIG time.
As I said in the original post, I'm not doing any mods that cannot be fully reversed. I'm not planning on any tuning.

Yeah, my 2007 3 series had DVD nav that was 20+ years out of date as to existence of roads etc. It was frustrating even then.
