My Santorini Blue M3 is in production!

Sadly, hurricane Sandy flooded both of my M3s... but I wasn't about to take that lying down.

I'm still fighting with insurance over the replacement value of my 75k mile '99 M3, but the 2011's replacement is well underway. Just checked BMWUSA's website and the car is in production!!!

Picking her up in Munich on March 18th.

Sorry to hear that man. Thankfully my car made it through the storm here on Long Island. Excellent choice on the color might i add. Look forward to seeing your new car and the rebuild of your old M. Hopefully you get the true value for it too.

A 99 Estoril Blue M3 with 75k miles totalled? Tragic.

What interior with the new E92? Congrats!

Thanks! I was a bit hesitant since I've never actually seen the color in person, but I don't think that I'll be let down.

I'm glad your car made it through! I wish I had moved mine, but I never thought this would happen. My Tahoe got wasted too...

I'm still fighting with insurance, or rather my attorney is now, over the '99. I do plan to fix it though, it still looks perfect since I stripped and dried it ASAP.

Yup, that broke my heart more then the E92. I've had the E36 forever, the car was pristine. I'll be restoring it for sure.

As for the E92, I went with Palladium Silver/Black/Black again with Carbon Leather trim.

It was rough, but I knew they were toast as soon as I opened the front door. You wouldn't believe how quickly the storm surge came in. I basically put them out of my head and just concentrated on securing what I could inside of the house. I expected wind damage, but nothing like this...

Thank you! I think the Santorini Blue car will help alleviate some of the pain. I had originally spec'd the same exact car but then I was like, this is the last of the E92's, I have to go big!

Truly sorry for your loss of the gorgeous E36 M3. Happier days are ahead for you with the arrival of your SB E92 M3. Can't wait for your full documentation of your ED experience.

Hope you make a documentary/video of your experience given the ED experiences of M3 deliveries are severely lacking on Youtube.

Keep us posted man.

Wow, sorry to hear about the cars, but sounds like you'll be coming out OK.

I have Liberty Mutual, and it is unnerving to hear about the conflict you're having with them.
