Ordered my new M3

Yesterday I officially placed my order for the M3 Coupe. I've ordered the car through the diplomatic/international worker scheme, which means I have to build the car from basic and add a lot of options to bring it up to what is added as standard for various markets around the world. Overall the price works out the same (but with a small discount). So here is what I've ordered.

M3 Coupe

A29 Silverstone II
Fox Red Novillo

2MK DKG Double clutch gearbox
2MT 19" wheels
223 Electronic Damper Control (EDC)
2MD M Drive
508 Park Distance Control (Front and rear)
313 Exterior mirror package
521 Rain sensor and auto lights
563 Lights package
470 ISOFIX front child seat
494 Front seat heating
415 Roller sunblind
302 Alarm system
322 Comfort access
493 Storage compartment
4AE Sliding front armrest
609 Navigation Professional
654 DAB tuner
672 CD changer
6FL USB audio interface
620 Voice control
644 Bluetooth
677 LOGIC7


At the moment it's scheduled for production on the 15th April, but that will probably move forward.

Congrats on your order!

Great choice with SSII. I'd go with that if didn't have silver currently.

Congrats mate! Nice spec - in particular, I was thinking of the same colour / interior choices = classic!

Did you pick extended leather, if you did then your car and mine are very similar bar DAB Tuner, Voice control and Roller Blinds.

Oh yeah and the small matter of M-DKG, I am sticking with the manual.

No full leather for me. Thought it was too much red.

Will the car have a "CD" label, then?

Congrats. That's a nice color combo. I didn't go with the extended red leather myself for the same reasons.

- Bluetooth is bundled with 639 BMW Assist (which is included in the Premium Package)
- Rain sensing windshield wipers and automatic lights are standard
- Font PDC is not available in the US (reflector issue?)
- Alarm system is dealer installed accessory
- By DAB do you mean HD Radio, option code 653?
- CD changer is a dealer-installed accessory

Thats cool. Yeah I read about the blue tooth BMW Assist relation in some post. I really wished they had front PDC so I could have showed off my car in the tiny parallel parks in front of my office....living in a very small city I am pretty sure that I will have the only M3 in town...

I also dont understand why German cars dont have changer...my friends G35 has it in dash...but my dad's SLK doesnt..weird. (weight?)

313 Exterior mirror package is that same as power folding mirrors? It better be cos thats the only reason I got the Winter Package...since I dont ski hehehe...

Thanks Greg

No. It will have a "BN" number plate in the Netherlands. So instead of 4 letters and two numbers i.e. aa-12-34, it will be something like 12-BN-34.

Interesting.
If the Vienna Convention on DR had applied for you, I'd have recommended the M Drivers Pack.

Thx for the info, Greg, didn't know that - makes me think I'll have to tick the ZPP box after alll, as I also want the aluminium trim.
