11/29 Performance Center Delivery {e90 Space Gray ZCP}

WOW!

What else is there to say...what a day! A BIG shout out to the PC staff that made the trip from Denver very, very much worth while. I enjoyed meeting up with fellow M3post member Marshall and his Dad (maiken21) And above all else - a special thanks to the staff and instructors and the 1:1 attention and sole focus on making this a day to remember: Ray, Donnie and Andy!

The Car:
  • 2011.5 e90 M3
  • Space Gray
  • 1/2 Fox Red & 1/2 Black (a la Matte Gray "special" edition)
  • 6MT
  • ZCV
  • ZCW
  • ZP2
  • EP Sound

The Pics:
Could NOT sleep

Track Car started, warmed up and ready to go

Track Car idle while we get breifed

Off Road Course River section

Off Road Severe Angle $hit (this tests your judgement and proved what a serious off-road vehicle the x5 is

Driver Fuel (100% complimentary food and drink all day!)

Another Oppty for BMW to take my money

BMW Museum & Factor Tour (where all x3,5,6's are made...2M square feet...this is just the public entrance - what an operation)

FINALLY...My baby is delivered

Crappy Interior iPhone pic

Mike & Instructor Donnie Isley


Now to load my new baby on a covered transport tonight...see you in a few days.

Congrats on the new car!

Donnie is the man! We stopped at the performance center while driving through South Carolina and he gave us a tour and took us out on the off road course in an X5 and the skid pad in an M5. Great guy.

Everything went smoothly - except the weather.

Dammit Jimmy, get with it.

Did the performance center schedule the shipping back home or did you do that?

They will to your dealer (that you purchased it from (for a fee))

PC "counts" as your delivery destination...

BUT - you can do Euro Delivery and PC on BMW (for "free")...in fact a couple did that with a 335i today. They made a nice vacation out of the $4k saved via EU delivery (if you are not in a hurry).

What end of town are you on? I rarely see any late model M3s in the Arvada, Westminster area. My M Sedan is the only E90 I've seen in these parts since I've been paying attention.

not really

see relatively few e9x's, esp. e90's.

I am really pleased with the choice...coming from a 335i - it really is a different beast.

Something seems familiar!

Congratulations!
Nice choice... Just about identical to my new one.

Looks like you had a great time with Donnie and the gang.
