Great colour! That blue sparkle is very nice!

Awesome!!! Best day of your life so far huh? So... you went through the 1st tank of gas yet? Heehee...

Glad to have been at group therapy during our waiting and tracking, although we ended up not classmates I can't believe your wait has been 10 months? So you put down an advanced order specifically for a MY13 production??? Hardcore! 10 months is like carrying a baby LOL

Don't wait toooo long before you track it!! Do it right and do it with respect, you won't crash. Did you opt in to any of those wear & tear replacement items package?

Have fun redlining at 5500rpm for now I am ~400km away from my 1st oil change... then soon after it's WOT and real redline time

Honest to God, when I first got mine, I could not sleep. I would keep getting up and going out into the garage because i couldn't believe I finally had her! Congrats Julie, I'm so happy your wait is over. Your new baby is beautiful.

Congrats! For a second I thought it was Jerez Black. I have had mine a little over a month and recently got the break-in service done. I absolutely love it. I agree with everything you said about how it makes you feel.

But the exhaust is not cheap. I'm trying to pay off the M on an aggressive timeline, so I'm going to hold off on that for now......

And one day I will bring her to the track! Right now, I can't as I can't afford to crash her...

I'm really looking forward to seeing yours!

I remember when I first starting lurking here on m3post, and you were getting your first M!



Yes, the wait is BAAAAAAAD.......... I won't lie. It won't get any better!

And man, I want to see that contrast stitching too!! You'd better post pics!
I'm having the ///M PE installed at the port, along with the alcantara steering wheel and the CF spoiler. It's expensive yes, but it's all covered by the factory warranty as long as its installed before you take delivery. I did not mod the MY11 at all, but this one I have gone a bit crazy. Here is a list of parts I have ordered so far the MY13 in addition to the parts being installed at the VDC:

Painted reflectors from IND
OEM CF splitters
OEM CF mirror covers
OEM aluminum pedal set and footrest
OEM Gloss Black Grills

I will post pics here when it arrives.

As for the track, yeah it's a bit of a risk, but as long as you run in a structured event with instructors and passing rules you will do fine. It will really open your eyes as to what these cars (and you as a driver) are capable of.

Also, just wait until the first time you can take that baby to 8400 rpm - you haven't seen anything yet! Enjoy!

Where are you passing by in Ontario?

Silverstone with that baby blue really looks great. I've seen it in real life. Pictures don't do it justice.

bnombe - thanks so much!! Yeah, you were a class ahead.

The story behind the wait is... I had told myself I would wait to get my dream car after I had finished paying off the mortgage. But initially we did not know if the current V8 would extend beyond model year 2012. So I put in an order for a spring 2012 delivery (wanted to ensure I would get an allocation). It took 5 months to get a production spot. Then, not long before I needed to confirm my specs, news came out (first on the Bimmerpost of course) that there would a 2013 E92 M3. So I held out until I thought I could reach my goal. It was hard during the spring when the meets started and my mind psychologically had been looking forward to getting a "2012 model year". I ended up finally being able to make it though this month because I was so desperate to get the ///M that I was super motivated, haha! So, in the end, I am very glad I waited.

No, I didn't opt in to any packages. The only one I took last time was the wheel and tire package. However, those things are hit and miss (sometimes worth it, sometimes not). All I know is, I am usually able to keep my cars in very good condition (I often get comments like, "Your car looks new" or even "It's immaculate" when I sell or trade in cars, and to date I've never had a wheel scuff (and I'm a woman - lol!) Oops - hope I didn't just jinx myself there, hehe. Plus it's not crazy expensive if one gets OEM wheels and tires from places like Tischer and Tirerack (much cheaper than the BMW dealership) so I'm willing to take the risk.

Jerez Black is very similar.

The Jerez has a bit of violet in its composition (lilac to be exact), which gives it a slightly different tone. And Azurite has the xirallic pigments in its paint (so there is some effervescence).

Azurite is a standard option in Canada so that's why I went with it. It does cost more, but less so than in the States, as it comes as part of a package.

Congrats on yours!

Thanks! I am working lots this week. Can't wait for the weekend so I can detail my interior and prep it for pics. I am loving the piano black wood lacquer trim. It's a very simple interior... but that's just the way I like it.

Oh wow, all those options will look hot... What color did you end up choosing this time? Your last one was Jet Black, right? That was my (close) second choice.

Individual Brilliant White is utterly gorgeous. (I've seen it in person at a BMW dealership in Germany.) Despite my loving dark black and blue colors, it did cross my mind to consider Brilliant White - just because of how awesome it looks.

Haha, I can relate. I picked up my 08 at 11:30PM in front of a grocery store (that's where the trucker wanted to meet). Spent the next 1.5 hours just driving around until I realized wow, I have to work soon. Came home, laid in bed, had to go back to the garage just to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Did that a total of 4 times before I finally went to bed. Needless to say, I was a zombie at work, and couldn't wait to leave to go drive her!

Maybe I missed it, but is it MT or DCT? If MT, absolutely no doubt in mind you should go for a ZHP knob. It transformed the car for me.

Thanks tbone! And thanks for your "Who has a production number thread?" I think that's how a lot of us initially met for 'group therapy'

So your car is cloooooooose!!

Haha, I was a zombie today at work. I was really tired last night (work has been busy lately) but I had a hard time sleeping. I was walking around feeling like I had to keep pinch myself - "Wow, I really have an M3??? Wow, like, OMG... WOW!!"

It's DCT. But do you have any pictures of your knob?? This past weekend, during a test drive of another car, I got to experience a really good manual. It really does make a difference to the enjoyment of a car...

JULIE!!!

CONGRATULATIONSSSSSS!!!!!!


After what seems like an eternity, I'm sure, for you.... your dream, is finally realized.

I am so, SO excited for you! You must be wanting to bail out of work for the next..... oh.... three MONTHS or so, just so you can DRIVE!!!!!

Now you REALLY have me missing my M3!!!

Fantastic car, fantastic colour!

You and Jake should get together for a photo shoot, for two pretty rare M3s. I must admit I haven't been around m3post as much as I'd like, but I still don't think there are many Azurite ones around!


"Health to drive", Julie... I can't think of a nicer thing to come, to a nicer person. Well deserved!!

Well, we officially own an E92 M3 to go along with the E30 and E36 (feel very blessed). All the paperwork has been signed. Nothing left but to get on the plane this weekend and pick her up in the motherland so I can officially join the class of '13.
