i want that car so bad.

i agree about the weight. while it seems heavy, i don't think it's that bad. and you can tell the ///M group was very concerned about car's weight since they made the move to incorporate CF roof on it. i wonder how much cheaper and heavier would the car be with just a regular roof.

The video used to brief dealers in the UK showed a 'white' M3 I believe.

I wouldn't mind seeing it myself, but thus far it is only for internal BMW employee viewing. Perhaps it might be available on a CD-ROM in a few months as they've done in the past.

damn she looks BEAUTIFUL in red. I can't even complain about the mirrors anymore because the red overpowers them, unlike on the grey one at Geneva.

i'm going to throw so much money away.... :-(

You can't believe how often I press the reload button, about every 10 seconds.

No need to thank, sorry for my post above being a lil' ironic.
