That's just it though - we do have ZCW.

PM me Epacy, I could potentially email them to you.

Big fan of the less-traveled pics. Did you happen to snap some shots of the battery? Could you tell what kind it was?
Unfortunately, no. I will see what I can do when I return on Saturday. I don't know if the cars will be open then though.

It's standard in the US.

I don't like it - I prefer the one in the sedan. Might have to retro-fit.

Thanks for a fantastic post. You took some great pics. It feels good to know that there are M3's on US soil.

Could you go into some more detail about the reflectors? I dont quite understand; Is the pannel slightly recessed, to fit the reflector into. Or is the panel flush with some holes to bolt the reflectors through.

Once again, Great Post. Thanks.

They're the same structured reflectors on the E46 M3 and the 2008 M5, meaning there's a reflector-shaped hole in the bumper that the reflectors snap into.

The reflectors don't bother me so much anymore for some reason. I now like them better than the 335i solution after looking at them a little more.

Are the headlight squirter things a part of the cold weather pkg, or are they on every US M3? I'm starting to wonder because I don't recall seeing an M3 without them yet.

Not for me.

Also, the US washers are not retractable like the regular 3er.

European washers aren't retractable, either.

Yeah, but what's the surprise about?
It's not a US special, M3 washers are nowhere retractable unlike the standard E92 washers...

I actually like the look of the busier gauge cluster. It fills out that huge circle.
