performance center delivery (PCD)--LAST WEEK!

Collected my car last week (Wed--3/12) in Greenville, South Carolina---first M3 that BMW-NA delivered via PCD. Enjoyed myself thoroughly then, on the way back to North Carolina, and since. As others have said, car is spectacular. Went with black interior and CF trim--looks and feels great. No regrets. If you can swing PCD, do it---you'll enjoy yourself. Got to beat on an already broken-in (but barely--it had 1205 miles on it) M3 on their track. I don't need to say how much fun this was. Museum was cool, meals they provided good, and ride around track in their M5 entertaining, but the other obvious highlight was delivery of my car which was thorough to say the least. Many surprising features that I wasn't anticipating (comfort access system is a MUST, imo). Drive back to NC was somewhat challenging trying not to speed or rev the motor above 5000 rpms--I accomplished the later. Surprisingly, driving 75-80 mph most of the way and shifting up/down a lot, I managed 22.4 mpg. Took many more pictures, but here's a few to wet your appetite. Already signed up for M school. See you at the track or out on the road.

That's my exact color combo in and out. Very nice. Only visual differences will be 18s on my car.

Congrats.

Could you post some interior shots?

Were there any DCT cars at the PC?

You'll love the black interior with CF trim---it looks really classy and won't hurt your eyes. (It was the only selection I doubted maybe once or twice--but am very pleased to have gone in the direction I did.) Here are a couple more pics--honestly, didn't take many of the interior; I was more mesmerized by the exterior and sound as I'm sure you'll be...

Very cool! I would definately like to do that. The delivery area looks pretty nice as well.
Those mpg's you pulled are quite nice.

Looks spectacular, and sounds like you had a blast.

PCD seems almost compulsory now, at least if you are reasonably near SC. I can't imagine not having a great, memorable time doing this.

sounds like you had fun. It must be really hard to keep the car under 5k before the break-in. I am in the same situation too.
