Nice E90 congratulations, again I must say SG is a great color also for the E90...

I changed between Foxred and Black so often before my order and I finally choose black leather interiour...your pictures let me thought again wether this was the right decision or not. Fortunately my car is here since last Saturday, so I can not change anything...

Second that - great looking car!

Btw, I am thinking about ED next Spring on a E92 M3. How do one arrange for the special ///M tour?

OP - I have been researching the steering feel between different wheel/package combos - just curious how the steering feels with the 18s in high speeds?

Hi guys. Thanks for the congrats on the car. Glad to finally be "in the club"

A few answers:

Frozen Grey was available to Canadians when I ordered at a cost of $5500. Just a special colour, not an edition car. Sure looks great, but I will use mine as a daily driver and don't want to be a slave to keeping it clean every day. Not sure if that is still possible. BMW Canada seems to have a lot of flexibility to make individual cars and add special options, even if it is at a hefty premium If you look up Marks M, you can see that a lot of individual type changes are possible.

For the tour of the M division, that was arranged through BMW Canada. For the premium that they charge Canadians over what US folks pay, I guess they can do a bit more. I would ask through your dealer though. I think BMW NA would have to make the arrangements. It's worth it if you can swing it.

For the gunmetal 18s, I have no idea how BMW decide which ones you get. When I got my car there was another identical SG car on the ramp with the silver 18s. When I ordered, they were unable to tell me which ones I would get.

Stelvio Pass is definitely a great way to initiate a new M3. I wish I would have had time for the Ring as well. That would have been a fantastic end to a great trip...

Beautiful car and great write-up.

Hopefully your car arrives before I leave so I can get a look at her. Although I cancelled my attendance in the Advanced Driving School due to time constraints, I intend to take a drive down and say hello to everyone on Saturday the 28th.
