Wait is over, e90 JB delivered

I ordered e90 M3 almost three months ago and finally the wait is over. I was originally looking for a used M5 but after driving both side by side there was no question on what I wanted. Wednesday night I dropped off my 05 M3 and picked up e90. It has Comp, Conv, Prem packages with DCT and other goodies. I love the color combination (JB over extended FR) and will make some pictures over the weekends.
DCT was the big question I kept coming back during the wait time but now I have no regrets - the speed of shifts is simply amazing and while I consider myself fairly skilled with MT there is no way I can match DCT
This was the first time I ordered a car instead of picking from the lot and though wait is painful I really enjoy that I got the car exactly how I wanted it (aside from the future tweaks it will most likely go through...).
I bought it from BMW of Seattle and would recommend anyone in the area to consider them in the future. Internet department guys were very helpful during the process and even managed to get me into the Olympic Drive event after the car was ordered.
Anyway, very excited about the new ride!

Does JB = Jet Black or Jerez Black? I know some use JzB to denote Jerez but not everyone does. Of course pics would help answer this....

Jerez Black, I should have clarified.

WRT to M3/M5 - I hated SMG compared to DCT. My 05 M3 was 6 speed and I would have gotten 6 speed if not for the wife who might occasionally drive it (said that, after driving DCT for the last three days I can clearly see why people like it). M5 also felt significantly bigger and not as tossable as M3. Plus I wanted a new car optined the way I wanted it

I managed to ger some pictures today, quality is not the best as I have not had too much time today

Congrats! I pick up my new E90 Sunday afternoon (today!) from BMW Bellevue after about a 10 week wait. Same options and decisions (DCT) as yours, except Le Mans Blue and Silver Novillo. When my rep called to let me know it's here he said "you're going to love the Performance Exhaust." Yes, I do believe I will!

Awesome, post feedback on how you like it.

Side question - what was your experience with BMW of Bellevue? I was very reluctant doing business with them after multiple problems and as soon as my warranty ran out serviced my e46 at Eastside Bavarian in Issaguah. I accidently stopped by BMW of Seattle and am so far am very impressed.

This is the first vehicle I've purchased from BMW Bellevue. I bought my 540-6 at My BMW in Monterey, CA. I had the 540 serviced a few times at Bellevue with satisfactory results (except for long wait times). 90% of the 540's servicing was done at Strictly BMW...love those guys. I have heard mixed opinions on the sales side of Bellevue; my experience has been good thus far. I wanted to do business near where I live and work, which is why I went with Bellevue.
