One question though... Paddle shifters? Why did you opt for them?

Again, congrats! Take good care of her.
Thanks Bimmerlover76!

The manual was my initial choice and have always driven manual roadsters. However, I am in the DC area and the traffic here is horrible. I plan to keep the M for awhile and don't want to be driving a manual in this traffic. I have been impressed with how fast it shifts. Must admit, I do miss the third pedal...

Thanks zhp2m3! It was an awesome experience. Looking forward to the next trip!

E90M production ended in October. Did you contact your CA on the status? Sounds like ED might be too late but PCD is an option. Ask your CA if it is possible.

Thanks for the kind words NavM3.

The BMW Welt used two sided adhesive tape that bonded very well during our trip. Did not leave a mark when removed.

Lovely car mate. Beautiful photos. I have ordered an m5 in this colour. It looks black basically, but hard to tell from photos. Is there much blue tinge at all?

Thanks! Congrats on the new M5. Love the new shape. AB is black from afar but with sunlight or up close, there is deep blue metallic flakes. It is a stunning color in person.
