Looks great! Yeah, verify if the seat bottoms changed whenever you can. Also it would be nice to see a good shot of the headrests after the plastic is removed since they changed slightly, and a close up of the start button with the CF leather background. Mine was completed last week as well but probably won't see it for another month or so.

Congratulations! Always love reading the first impressions, etc. of a new E9x M3 owner -- what a great feeling! Enjoy it!

I've posted my impressions of the new iDrive before, and your images confirm some of my thoughts. Of course it's just my opinion, but I think the new controller doesn't do anything at all for the interior. The elegance and simplicity (aesthetically) of the 1st gen controller is better than the pile of buttons surrounding the new controller. Of course, the functionality of the new iDrive completely blows away the first-gen system. Just a shame they had to clutter up the center console with all those buttons (and a less attractive knob).

Congrats, I'm also a military sales customer. My CA hasn't even put in my official order yet, because he claims he hasn't got the final price list yet for the new M3. I wonder why you were able to get yours and I can't even put in an order yet?

Looks beautiful.

Awesome, congratulations. I'd be kicking myself in the butt if I had that old iDrive system.

Big Windy, congrats on finally getting your car, and the first US Spec '09 at that. A little dirty, but otherwise looks great. Lovin' the new iDrive. Thanks for getting the pics up for the rest of us with our cars stuck at the port.

You should make your GM friend reimburse you with a gift certificate or something for the bad info.

Congrats Big Windy!

I am sure it has been a long wait. Looking forward to some 2009 reviews when you can stop driving the M long enough to give us some feedback.

+1 on the 0 kms.
