Dakar yellow - *meh*
Atacama >> Dakar
Atacama a little too much for a coupe/sedan I agree

LOVE the speed yellow!
Great minds....

Let's find a time for another meet, I've got to see this.
Indeed, spring can't come quickly enough!

Only one thing: i would switch to black rims.
Even if i'm not a fan of black rims i think they look good on flashy colors like yellow or green...

Enjoy your ride !
As noted above, black GTS 359s are already in the garage, waiting.

Yeah. I have black chrome off of my last car, so I still have that option if the CF just doesn't seem to work.

Looks amazing man.. I'm jealous.
Thanks, um, chica?

I almost ordered my gt3 in this color a few years ago but later settled on white and regretted it. I think you are the only SY owner on this forum.

If you ever want to sell the car, pm me first.
Thanks, but at this point I have no intention of selling anytime soon.

2-tone? If you mean the yellows, that's just a result of different spectrum lighting and my crappy iphone. If you mean yellow w black, I agree!!

Honestly I'm surprised at least Dakar wasn't offered.

Thanks! (But NA FTW!)

I can't be the only one thinking that a photoshoot along side a Dakar and a Atacama E92 M3 would be sweet. You could even get someone with Fire Orange just for good measure.

Congrats on the great new car.
Thanks! Re such a shoot, there are one or two Dakar E36s around here, maybe an E46, not sure about any E9x M3s, and presumably there's an Atacama Z4 puttering around somewhere. Will have to see. Maybe at the BMWCCA spring drive. That would be fun!

Thanks. I disagree re the nav once a few years have passed. For example, how interested are you in a 2005-era nav system? That's a million years ago, tech-wise.

You know what they say about if you have to ask.... but @signes answered already.

Congrats and enjoy.
No plans anytime soon!

I also want to congratulate you for not going with the navi. Besides the fact that it doesn't age well, that hideous hump on the dash completely ruins the car.
Thanks. And I agree!

Another individual car with no idrive. Mine was for sale for awhile but potential buyers all want Nav. Guess they're only thinking short term. Decided to keep the car.
Congrats man
Thanks, ma'am!

I look at Pre-Owned BMW's all the time just to see if I can find a good one, and the Nav does get dated very quickly.

Love the color! Hope you have many hours of happy driving llis!

As for your exhaust question - Definitely an AA black edition exhaust will suite your need...low, bassy rumble. Most of the ones your listed aren't as low-bassy, or on the other hand can be too loud.

Anywho, amazing choice in colour. Enjoy in good health!
I've seen photos of cars, I'm not sure how many are out there. AA was a finalist, but I'm hours away from ordering the Eisenmann Race. 95% sure as I write this.

Yes indeed! (But I don't think Dakar looks bad, either.)

e90/e92 possible. Will see. Ok I'm ranting....

Way to go with the purchase!!!
Thanks! I haven't driven any F series except the 550i. The new M5 looks pretty fabulous, though, and the new M6 even more so. I agree, the E39 and E46 are classics.

Thanks! (I am thinking of getting an "off duty" sign to mount on the roof.)

Update: So the car is now in customs. The past 7 weeks have gone faster than each day is now. I am getting impatient! Especially since we've been having some pretty nice weather recently (until this afternoon). I'm wondering what the heck I'll do if the truck arrives at the dealer during a snowstorm!

Thanks again, everyone! I'll post updates when the car arrives and the mods begin!
