I'm sure it was really inflating for you to park the M just to see a FLAT BLACK 458???????

Great video, thanks for sharing. Brings back memories of my trip to Germany. Glad you had some good weather days. Beautiful car and color. The same color I want.

Amazingly well put together video. I wonder why your car had 15 miles on it and others who did ED picked it up at the Welt with 0 miles on it. And I took "regular" delivery in CT and my car had 5 miles. Strange, wonder why they drove your car "so much"...

I would think ED would be in Km, so that'd be about 10 miles...

I get your point though.

Very nice video. Kudos to the videographer. I only wish my wife would be as patient and excited about the car as yours.

Any wife who zooms in on the speedometer and tapes WOT drive byes is okay in my book.

It had 15Km when I picked it up. The CA set it on Km so that "you would be more familiar with the distances in Navigation and on signs and whats being displayed on the car". Kinda true, it was much easier, "Dachau is 20KM away" it was easier to figure out what a KM was. I had the display read V= in KMs as well so I could match the speed signs as well(that is until I saw it crossed out with 4 slashes ).

Why don't you lay off the guy and just let him enjoy his experience with the M3, PKL.

Oh I don't mind. 15km is like nothing. It could have been one of the cars they took off the assembly line to test in Regensberg. Its not like it came with 50 miles on it or anything.

The engine felt very linear and smooth. The transmission shifted perfectly and on time when I wanted it to shift. I couldnt be happier with the purchase.
