I wouldn't mind swapping with you if you have Yokohama Advan RS wheels in dark gunmetal That's what I intended to get until I saw the special edition.

These T&C people are really lucky that way, a lot of people complain about there sevice, yet somehow they still manage to get a lot of the business

I think people should really shop around, and perhaps ask other members who have had positive experiences at there dealers, and be referred there to get:
a. better deals
b. better service

because in the end of the day, if you buy it this way, you will be more satisfied guaranteed!

I mean I am at excellent terms with not only my sales and service guys but the owner himself. So all my friends and contacts can avail from that, and we are all content with the service

I know eh? I should have joined the forum before I bought the car.

I'm actually surprised that people on this forum are extremely nice(well, in the "Canada regional forum" anyway...) I thought I would have to deal with the "ricer or baller attitude" since everyone here owns an M3. I still own a modified 350Z, so I go to my350z.com forum as well. You need your flamesuit on to get in there =) you guys are infinitely nicer than that community. Totally surprised.

Since I was on the topic of my 350Z, I think I'll post some pics. Eventhough it's not an M3, but it's Monte Carlo Blue... so half revelant to the post

I'll be at J&V trackdays this year with my 350Z if it's not sold by then. M3 is only my daily drive.

The bodywork was done at European autobody. They did an awesome job.

I got another magazine photographer coming to shoot my car next Sat. If anyone's interested, PM me, I'll send you more pics =)

I like the blue!

Actually it was a little weird on the ordering front! There are 47 Editions in total coming to Canada, so they are pretty exclusive! Especially once you consider that figure is then further broken down into the 3 colours themselves...........

But here on the East Coast we got alot with Sunroof's it would seem and out West they had more Carbon Fibre roofed vehicles!!

Not sure who planned that one - Go figure...

+1 - that is a lot. Hardly exclusive - My Sparky G E90 is probably just as "exclusive" I guess dealers with have to have a fire sale on these things soon. I would much prefer the Competition PKG.

I suspect it was an 11th hour decision to bring some in as they were not selling that well elsewhere otherwise we should have been able to order them the way we wanted them back when production began in the summer.

I somewhat agree,

however minus the exterior mods and the wheels (which can be retrofitted), the interior is quite stunning and the exterior paint is individual as well!

So when you think about it, an individual M vehicle for 10K? is not that bad.

Considering the individual package on other vehicles costs an arm and a leg.

On our 760Li it was somewhere close to $22,000

I guess its whatever floats your boat. If an interior was that important to me and I wanted a really nice interior, I wouldnt buy a BMW. This is a Limited Edition - with Limited colour choices. Individual Packages are already available on the M3 and I could buy an '11 with the comp pkg and individual pkg for probably less than this. Thats my point - and a true individual pkg would be more exclusive.

I believe the Dakar Yellow one at Budds has a CF roof - they have a White Edition with the CF roof as well. The MCB they have I am pretty certain has the sunroof.
