After an 84 day wait it's here....

I don't know what is worse. Waiting for delivery or waiting for 1200 miles?

She's a beauty! Go easy on her during the break-in - not the easiest thing in the world - and she will serve you well!

The wait is worse, after I did my break in she tool almost three months to get here, that and she sat outside in a hurricane (no pun intended after re-reading your username) in Halifax, so yeah. Be happy she's there and looks like in good condition! Enjoy in good health.

Would you say the interior is a good example of how Fox Red looks in real life? Congrats, enjoy her and be safe!

Oh and the wait is definitely worse! If you're like me that is cos I drive it like I stole it from the first moment.

The run in period does suck - take her on some long runs at varying speeds to ease the pain.

When you wake-up this morning, I bet the first thing you will do is open the garage side door...slide the lights to "auto". Looking GOOD!!! You guys are killing me.....and another MT

Very nice, congrats!

Same interior scheme as mine - good taste there Only difference is that I ordered Jerez Black exterior.

I bought my M3 impulsively off the lot but if I would've picked the colors I'd've gotten this combo.

It's Space Gray. I have a couple of other pictures with different lighting angles where the color looks darker. Those pics were taken post upload.

It's funny you say that. I've been doing that every morning since Thursday when I picked it up.

Wow! That is a really long time. Are you following the car's production online? What stage has it reached?

In the third picture of the car you can see the headrests through the windows. I think this photo albeit a photo of the exterior, is a good example of how fox red looks. The interior picture I posted look cherry red or candy red. Fox red doesn't look like this. It's more of a maroon or rust red. The picture of this headrest is a good example.
