First few days with my new M3

So I finally got my E92 M3 re-delivered last Friday. I just could not believe
that after 7 1/2 weeks I was going to be re-united with my M.

I was stoked by the accessories I had ordered. The car looks amazing and
it feels and sounds better than the ten days I drove it in Europe.

Someone on another thread asks the question about how intimidating this car
is... and at least for me: a resounding VERY... still trying not to screw up.

After delivery we went to dinner and I drove for few minutes until I could find
a parking spot as far away as possible... and then I saw two guys walking
towards the car after I parked it... so I left my wife twice at the dinner table
to go check on it and just to find the guys checking my ride out...
.... going a little paranoid on my side for sure.... hope it will go away with time... maybe it wont...

On Saturday I took her for a nice drive on MD's back roads. WOW!

Today was my second day taking her to work and I can tell you that my
commute never felt like this awesome before...

The M Performance Exhaust is nothing short of amazing: that raspy, exotic
sound is intoxicating... So happy about my exhaust choice...

Well, here some pics from the weekend... yeah! still got the Euro plates and
all the Autobahn vignettes.

On a side note: the VDC took care of the 1200 mile required service.

Ha! How'd she take that?

I was at a restaurant with my in-laws and kids a couple weeks ago and looked outside... and my car wasn't where I parked it. Freaking out, I got up to walk outside, ready to call the cops. Luckily my father-in-law caught me before I got out. Yeah, my wife had taken my car and left me hers. And I was fully aware that was going to happen.

These cars do make us a little crazy, I think.
