Thumbs up I got my new M3 from the Dealer today!! First M3post U.S. member.

I have had it on order for about 1 year. Picked it up about 1:00 and have the man coming to tint it in the morning. Will get it lowered next week and start on other mods. The pics are first ones, just at the dealer and at my house while I was cleaning it up. Will have more later, and driving comments. The feel is much different from my E46. The trans is much better, but the clutch seems light. Wish you could get on it, but it had 3 miles on it when I picked it up and I now have 58. Will get some on it soon.

So I guess he's the first one with a US Spec M3 to take delivery.

Congrats on the delivery. I have to ask, why did you have to clean it up after taking delivery? Didn't your dealer have it properly detailed?

I see you have the upgraded audio system. How does it sound?

Only listened for a few moments, but don't have it all adjusted yet.
I will let you know by Friday! The Dealers never do it good enough for me!!
Thanks

that is simply awesome... I guess there is no truth to the rumor that dealers can't release their e92 m3s before the 8th release date.... Man, I can't wait for mine now....
