I have a Jerez, but still find the alpine white to be the best looking color on this car. Something clean and timeless about it in my opinion.

Both my GTI and S4 were dark colors, couldn't do it again.
Dark colors show every little paint imperfection, which drives me nuts. Dark colors look amazing when freshly cleaned, but that seems to only last for about two minutes, especially in the northwest.

I wouldn't have bought this car in anything but AW. Well ... possibly space grey, but that was a distant second place for me.

Congrats, OP. I was drooling over that car just this past weekend - I wiped it all off though.

I grew up in Kirkland so I've been drooling over cars there for quite some time.
On Saturday? I drove it off the lot by 3:30pm, so you must have been in early!

Yeah, I was there on Saturday just after lunch. I love that place, and BMW Bellevue, and the Aston Martin dealer and the Lambo dealer too.

An M3 is the best choice there is, welcome bro !

Overall it's a default AW M3 but it's clean, not modded and looks awesome.

Side reflectors is a personal choice, painting over them is not everyone's preference. Most colors look better with the reflectors, especially AW. Looks too bland without them.

Enjoy and take care of it !

Yep been going there for quite some time. Only car I have bought there was my 330zhp. Usually steep on pricing. Fun to look, and drive a variety of cars.

Yes, I definitely paid a premium because I was so particular on specs and options. Plus, I wanted to trade my S4 in instead of trying to sell it first private party.

Wtf? What's next? Will you be upgrading your ZCP wheels to 328i wheels?

Welcome Crabpot! Congrats on the M3!
I too have an AW.
A little Swissvax leather treatment should bring those leather seats to new!

Thank you!

It's going in for a full detail next week, I bought it before the dealer was able to do so.

Nice grab! Looks good. Even the seat bolsters look to be in great shape.
