Good question! I hear from my SA that BMW stopped with the Michelin's for some reason but I'm still hoping.

Congrats you guys!
I got Michelin on mine. MY12 June production (with ZCP). Let's hear from Julie what's on her MY13.

To be honest, I have wanted an M3 for 14 years now, and in that time I have been in the position to buy one 4 times. Each time however, something has come up that needed my funds and, in the past few months or so, I have just decided to let the dream go and live vicariously through all of you. Sports cars are for some people, and at this time in my life - despite me making more money than I have in the past - I need to be focusing on college funds for my kids and retirement.

Not to mention, I have a hot wife, and she is very expensive

Yes, those are the new and better tires. That's what I'm hoping come on my car as well and not the Conti's.

Hey... it's 2012!! If you can get her that kind of rock (nicely done!!!), she can buy you the M3!! Fairness in my books like I treat my wife a fancy-ish purse after I first treat myself to a fancy-ish watch on my annual bonus

But sounds like you have better ways to enjoy your hard earned $$$ than a car... all good all good!

My wife works in a mall (she manages tenants) so, if I were to play the 'fairness' card, I would need to buy a Ferarri 458 to equal what she has spent thus far...

I dunno... I think he's hung around well more than few months. He seems to have developed a coping mechanism... maybe it is possible to live own dream via others?! Look at this joined date; and he has allegedly wanted a M3 for 14 years... (or was it since he was 14?). I him for this resistance.

Like my wife has been saying these years, I've been spoiled... well, largely by myself with the green lights that she's been giving me on most things. Still, only "spoiling" within our means - never reckless and never over-extend

I have a feeling you are sleeping in your M3 tonight. I know you WON'T ever eat in it though

So... know anyone to carry this thread on now awaiting his/her M3 into Canada?

No, that's right. Nooooooooooooooooooobody can eat... even 5 feet near my car! Lol, it's ridiculous how paranoid I've become.

I asked them not to detail the interior of my car (because I'm fussy and my 335i looks worse after they clean it than before!) It was in large part to protect the fragile piano black trim so I could put some Zaino sealant on it. But they 'wiped' it down anyways, because they thought I'd at least want that. And now, there's this scratch on my piano black trim - aaahhh!

Oh, I didn't realize you've been here for that long. I salute your self-discipline! Something tells me though you'll be getting an M later.
