I'm going to live the M3 experience vicariously through you guys for now. I put my deposit down almost 3 years ago, but by the time my name came up (just yesterday) my life has changed to the point that I'm not sure this is the right car for me. I married into some great cars, and I now have a very long commute. I used to be so excited that I was going to get one of the very first cars... now it doesn't matter as much. I still think it's a great car though!
