I know if I register the Car in California my home of record they will kill me on taxes.
You should get a purchase order with the VIN and final price on it. I would suggest you go to your local DMV in Texas and find out exactly what you will need and how much $$$$ it will be to register your M3 in Texas. Then make sure you get the required DMV paperwork from your CA.
