Finally a240reef's 2012 First BMW arrives

I placed my order August 6th. It arrived on US Shores on Oct 5th. I waited for California Air Resource Board to clear the 2012 cars. Picked up my car due to some other randomness last night Dec 27th. My girlfriend's brother told me a while ago as the car was sailing to not think/worry about it cause it'll drive you insane. Best advice for new owners. It was driving me nuts watching the little boat go across the screen everyday.

I wanted to thank this forum for always answering my newb questions. The information on here is awesome. Eprops for all of you.

I promise I'll post more HD pictures later but I'm one of those select few that have to work during the holidays.

Thanks everyone =) Yes the wait is finally over. It's been about less than 48 hours of ownership and so far...

My cousin and I took the car through the mountain pass and we were giggling like school children over how much fun we were going to have. We've both driven P-cars and were surprised at how nimble the M3 is. I made a Flip video of the event but I'm really going to need that big suction cup Gopro.

I have to constantly check the speedometer because I don't realize how fast I'm going. My sales rep told me I needed to get a radar detector for that "added protection". I guess I can no longer rely on my eagle eyes to keep me out of "harm's way".

The DCT transmission was little gimmicky. I parked my car on a hill the other day and thought it was in parked. As I walked away, however, the engine was still on. I had to call my friend and ask, "is this normal?" I guess I'm still hammering out the precise "how to turn off your DCT".

Also I spent 10 minutes at the gas station, looking for the gas lid lever, when I should've just RTFM. Haha I'm a man. I want to figure things out w/o reading the manual. hahaha. yes yes push gas lid to open.

I'm very happy that I went with Jerez Black over Interlagos. The black/blue sheen is incredible. And I LOVE how well the Red Novillo leather came out. Outstanding color combo. I can't wait to break the 5500 rpm. =)
