Better still, now I wait for the car to be sent from Concord to my dealer. Hoping it comes this week. it has been sitting in the rail yard in Concord for the last month. 1/2 hour transport ride.

This is a more accurate picture of palladium & a picture of an interlagos blue M5. This is my color combination for the M3.

Are they prepared to deliver the car to you before March 8th official release date? I'm trying to get that answer out of my dealer.

At least yours is in Ontario... my dealer tells me that the cars wait at Halifax port until release date (but maybe that's wrong based on the fact that yours in in Concord). My car arrives in Halifax in 2 days, so if its 10-14 days to dealership delivery, as my dealer tells me, then I guess at least it won't be waiting in Halifax for long if its going to be delivered by March 8th official release date.

I went to the show on press day (Thursday) I got to sit in ALL the locked cars it was crazy! i literally spent 40 minutes by myself inside the e92. Sat in all the seats played with all the contraptions and everything! *sigh* My friends told me I looked nervous sitting in it, it was like my first date I went back again on Saturday for a second date but it was locked when i was there.

When i was talking to the reps they said individual was available on the m3 as well, but i dont know if they know what they're talking about. Does anyone here know?

My dealer told me that it was available in Canada but that it would delay production by 2-3 months on early production cars.

No cars will be delivered before the Mar.08 release date. Mine shipped from Halifax about 4 days after it was unloaded & has been in Concord since then.

I see that the USA price is 57K + and I have seen the Canadian price is 90K. One Canadian $ buys 99.82 US $ Who is getting the other 33k

Fully loaded US M3 is approx. $68,000 & Canadian M3 is approx. $86,000. PDI & freight not included in these prices. Exchange rate at the mall today was $1.035. Still the US M3 increased by about $7,000 & Canadian M3 dropped $3,100 from the previous M3 so it could have been worse.

Family has been buying BMW's for years and one of the sales reps we've dealt with was manning the booth for the 1 series. He was kind enough to open the car up for me and let me sit in it for a while. Oh my did I get so much hate through the windshield... Either way, the seats, while they are different from the Euro versions, felt fine, supportive and hugging. The steering wheel was very thick, it'll definitely take some getting used to. All I know is my first experience in the M3 was in front of a crowd of people either staring daggers at me or begging me to let them in too Felt good to be a VIP for a little while.

I don't know too much about it other than it is a special order program which allows you to tart up and indivualize your car mostly with things like fancier interiors, special amterials etc. If you go to the BMW website you can find more about the program. I thought it was only on the 7 series.

It is available for the M3. Option code is ZSP. $400 administrative fee for a special order + the price of the option. I wonder what would happen if this code was entered on a US car. Would the BMWNA system take it so a individual order could be placed for a US spec car & maybe BMWNA would not catch it.
