My new M3 is finally here

Hello All,

I am finally a proud owner of a Mineral White M3 with Fox Red interior, included are the Competition and Premium Packages. Did ED, unfortunately don't have many pics from Munich, but here are some pics using my iPhone.

It'd be great to get some pointers for things to look out for as a new M3 owner/driver.

I ordered through SF BMW, dealt with a gentleman named Gert Visser, whom I would highly recommend (which I forgot to do earlier). I calculated ED invoice and shot him an email about how much I would like to pay above that and he handled everything else. Give him a call if you're looking to buy a BMW of any kind.

Close enough for me. It'd probably be Monday or Tuesday for me most weeks. I guess if you guys are gonna meet up next week, the only day I'd be available is Tuesday.
