Hi M3lad,
Yes love it but v frustrating only being able to use 5500 rpm all the time. Service booked for 15th Sept, need to be able to use full rev range for my road trip. Mentioned it to hayzi, www.circuit-days.co.uk the Alpine Tour. One place left I think....hope to seriously be able to enjoy the car then. It's not that it's not quick enough up to 5500 rpm for everyday driving just that I'm bored of watching out not to exceed it! When's yours due?

I would contact the dealer. If you are expecting delivery this month I would guess that it has been built and will be starting to proceed in transit. Possibly awaiting a ship, etc?

They will have a chassis number once built and they will then register the car and provide you with the reg number (providing you are not popping a private plate on it) so you can start to sort insurance cover etc

I posted a note in the Insurance thread with the details of Crowthorne Insurance brokers. Paul Norris is the contact, he's always sorted stuff for me. He's done mine and i did not need a tracker.

No tracker required - insured through Admiral (one of the only insurers who didn't demand a tracker and also the cheapest!!)

::At last, picked up my brand new M3 about 2 weeks ago and just can't stop loving it. So far done about 500 miles and found no lag problem at all, may be my car already have version 2.35 software installed? Lets hope so anyway, and now I just can't wait to break it in...............and.........oh yes.....
