Thanks!
I'm so relieved that E is able to have a look at PS in the flesh.


Best regards, south

Sorry - no interior shots

These were taken with a Canon EOS 40D body, 17-40 f/4L lens, and Speedlite 580EX flash / Lightsphere diffuser.

+10000000, was thinking the same thing

But they had an M5 there to sit in, so I was a little less pissed.

Awesome pics! Such a hot car. I can't wait!!!

My only disappointment (minor) is BMW insists on putting these ridiculous 'reflectors' on the front bumber. The Euro M3's don't have em, but the US ones do! Can't be legal reasons, as the US M6 doesn't have them.... so why the M3??? BMW needs to get a clue... Just my .02

After looking at detailed picturs of those stupid reflectors, it appears that the folks in Bayern did us a favor and barely glued them to the bumper.

I don't think that it is anything that a little "Goo Gone" and dental floss cant take care of!

I'm glad you guys enjoy the photos

The M3 definitely has an in-person presence that you don't get with other E9X 3-series models. I'm still not quite sure what car I'll end up with, but between the aggressive pricing and seeing it in person, it's definitely still in the game!

Oh thank G-d! Yes, I can see from the closeup that they are just glued to the bumper. What a relief. At first thought they cut them into the bumper like the 335s!

My first mission is to goo gone them off!

It was posted before that they actually have inserts on the bumper for them to fit into - where do you see that they're glued on?
