Order Up!

WooHoo! Ordered my 2011.5 M3 coupe 6spd in mineral white for 11/5 factory pick-up. Went for the navi, heated seats, and just about nothing else. Going to drive it around Europe for a few days with my gf, then drop it in Nice. Planning on putting some Fikse 19" Profil 10 in racing black as soon as the car makes it back stateside. Fikse already talking sponsorship/gallery shots for their new website :-) I can't wait for November!

No carbon leather? It kinda makes the Speed Cloth interior! And yes I'm biased

Gotcha... That'll be a classy combo. I assumed "about nothing else" meant Speed Cloth.

Went with a few other small options like ipod connection, smart phone integration, etc. But tried to keep the factory cost down because I plan on adding some aftermarket stuff. Now taking suggestions on a suspension to pair with the Fikses...

From Mark Harrington in Seattle. Highly recommended. I had a terrible experience with Bellevue.

haha. I had a terrible experience in Bellevue too. The sales man actually got up in the middle of talking to me went to greet someone he spotted walking in. When I gave him a questioning look, he said, "they are serious about buying". Guess what, they didn't buy anything from him that day. I waited to just make sure. I went down to Seattle, talked to Matt Goldstein there and confirmed my order. He was so patient with me. I ordered in 07, so I ordered blind and didn't know what I needed and if the car is really worth paying that much. I was number 3 on their list, but after I told Matt that I have to get my car before I travel to Iraq, he worked with the other customers ahead of me and got me to trade places and I ended up being the number one on the list. I will always go back to Seattle and specially to Matt. So, I am curious, what do you drive now? By the way, I will be back in Seattle in Dec, so I would love to get a look at the special order car.

Question: Do you guys recommend going with the ZCP package even if I'm going to switch out the wheels, or just get coilovers after I get the wheels? I like that the ZCP package has custom EDC, etc. But I hate that I have to double buy 19s...

I guess I could use the tires though... this is probably worth it?

IMHO ZCP wheels will sell for good money used. They look very clean, and I would not mind a second set for winter tires.
