Thanks for all the photos Champagne, really appreciate it.

Seriously though those blurred ones are pretty bad

Those latest "dirty" shots show a great reason to choose SSII or AW over JB!!

Can't wait to post my shots next month!!

And the main reason for why I choose it, the second reason is that it's a unique M color and will never be available for the standard 3-series.
Did you get the tints done or did the dealer do them?

Thanks for your appreciation.

The carwash has been delayed due to illness... Will get the pictures as soon as I can bring myself to wash a car without going unconsciousness.

I agree about SSII, but I'm not too sure about AW since I think the mud would be way too clear. I would actually think Space Gray or Sparkling Graphite would be quite good as well, and even better than AW.

Oh yeah, I went into Stockholm (the city) yesterday. I'm famous now, there must be at least 200 pictures of me in my car all over Internet by now. People where like crazy with their cameras.

Trust me... Never had an harder time in my life to restrain myself (I'm referring to not over-revving the 5.5k RPM). I truly love my car, and I know all the rest of you who's still waiting will as well!

What sort of a favour are you doing if in most of the pictures you can't actually see anything? You're wasting my time for a start. Why not just post the only semi-decent picture, which was the first one, and then when you have more time, take some proper photos? In fact, the latest photos you've posted are very good, and show the car from an unusual angle. Really, FFS, what is the point in posting this picture:

The point of that picture is to help you visualize the atmosphere that I've been giving such a high grade! If you don't like it, close your eyes ffs.

I've been wasting your time? Oh, I'm sorry... I spent about 30 minutes uploading all those photos just for your pleasure. I bet I wasted more of your time than that.

And they're not going to get those back.

The ones from above add something. They are from a different angle. But the others.

I'm tired of sycophantic people on here, fawning over somebody just because they've posted some pictures up. If somebody is going to post crap like that then they have to expect somebody, namely me, to criticise it.

Is it possible to ban someone from my thread?
I explained why I posted those pictures. It was to show the atmosphere at night which I've been talking about before. Those pictures where taken during drive, of course I could have waited, but I wanted to contribute to the community as soon as possible. If you don't like it, shut your eyes.

I like the blurry one Champagne.
It does remind me of what taxis look like inside at 4am
Cheers for the photos!

Hey Champ's hope you're feeling better today. If it's as cold in Sweden as it is over here there's no way I'd be outside washing my car. It's f**king freezing. Take it easy.

Actually no, but thanks for asking!

I have a hangar where I usually washes my car in, and then I have a garage to tuck it in when I get home. Will try to do it tomorrow!
