New e90 beast is here

So today was the big day! picked up my 2009 Alpine White e90 m3 on Bamboo Beige: DCT, 19" Wheels, Moonroof, CF trim, Tech. Package, Prem. Package.

i only have about 100 miles or so on it, but its been a big blast.

Some Thoughts:

1.) The new idrive is definitely much more improved over the old one. Way easier to navigate through the different options.

2.) Power on this beast is amazing, leaves me speechless. A little background, i had a 2004 Lancer Evolution 8 modded fairly, and then changed up to a 08 328i Coupe, and now the m3. Cant really compare any of the 3, but the whole car is just a lot more powerful and a lot smoother than any of the other cars I've owned.

3.) It is extremely hard to keep it down low during break in. very tempting!

I'll have my friend take some photos for me tomorrow evening, so hopefully i can get some picks up, so stay tuned!


Here are some Teaser pics to hold you off till i get a proper photoshoot done.

How was the adjustment with the DCT? Assuming the other cars you had were MT.. (Not sure)
I just order a mine with DCT.. I have driven it but I am not sure i will like it long term.. I am still waiting.. I was very 100% sure when i ordered it.. but went with DCT.. I am having second thoughs now. I think i would not feel the rawness.. not sure...

My Evo was manual and my 328i was Steptronic. But living here in LA, traffic becomes a nightmare and i did not want to sit in 2 hours worth of traffic constantly fidgeting with my shifter and clutch. dont get me wrong, 6 speed vs dct was a very hard decision for me, but i had to think in the long run. i drove both and definitely u feel more engaged with the 6 speed, but the DCT is not bad at all. I agree that the DCT lag issue sucks, but its not something i personally will have a big annoyance with.

and yes, this thread is pretty much worthless without pix, but hopefully they will be up by night time.

It's a good thing you added teaser pics or I would have stayed up all night wondering what an AW e90 M3 looks like.

J/K welcome to the club

congrats. i'll look for your car as i work around irvine. wave if you see my e90 (08 though)...i have the same color combo. i'm worried about keeping the bamboo clean though in the long run. no kids yet..but soon i'm sure it'll be a problem.

looks sweet! Oddly enough, I dont think i've ever seen any AW/Bamboo combos before so get some more pics up! I love the bamboo interiors.

Oh and the stock exhaust looks horrible lol. I just installed the AA exhaust and it really makes a big difference in terms of looks(and obviously sound)
