P.D.I Pre-delivery-inspection..

they programe the cars electronics and take out the "blocks" from the springs etc etc.. the cars are shipped in whats called "transport mode" and next to nothing works on them like heated seats or a/c or even comfort access.. the keys wont be programed either.. lots of stuff really..

I was hoping it was the dual clutch version. Thats the one my Dad ordered and I was hoping to get your impressions a few months before he gets the car. August is a long way away, at least I get my 135 between now and then.

we just got a black sedan m3. stickered just below 70k. just a couple of things i noticed; the mirrors are very odd, it looks like it's connected at the top but it isn't. also the sunroof was a 1050 option.
