I can see this thread devolving into a pissing contest, despite the best intentions of the OP.

My M3 story: ordered new during the summer of '09, it just crossed 20,000 miles last week.

Brand spanking. Picked up at the Welt like the above.

She was broken in where she should have been. On the A roads.

Results should be interesting
CPO. It was actually your 2011 e92 that you traded in. Glad you maintained it well.

Good for you, may you have many ... many miles of fun. I so loved the FR interior, however, was hungrey for a fully loaded M3. How is the tint holding up? (the only item I added to her).

I plan to have my new one window tinted at the TintKing (tint side and rear window) later this month. The tint I found gave the car more class looked sharp.

Cheers, Rolf-Dieter

Tint is alright. Although there's a scratch on the inside of the passengers side window. No bubbles though

Yes I love FR.

I have the same (scratch) on my Benz passengier side window it may be from the seat belt (metal part) one needs to be careful when releasing the seat belt.

Glad to hear all is well

Happy trails !

Brand new custom build.....

I waited for ZCP to be released and pulled the trigger right away. Mine is one of the very 1st 2011s (04/2010 build). I also did not want a typical Fox Red / AW combo....
