I still can't believe it

I took delivery of my new M3 on saturday and I was in heaven since then. The car is much better than I ever expected. It looks more stunning in real life than in any pictures. The engine noise is one of the best things in this car. Its like a race noise. The throttle response is fantastic in normal mode, but when you press the M button, it just roars and rushes forward. After using the sport plus mode, normal feels slow in throttle response. All this is below 5k RPM, I cant wait to drive after the first check up at 1200 miles. I was very afraid of the light steering that was reported in the reviews. It actually is light in normal mode but is very precise and is very comfortable to drive in narrow, curvy or city roads at low speeds. When it is in sport mode, it becomes heavy enough and is very direct and precise. You point it to a spot, it goes. It is that good. I felt that the clutch was a tad light initially, but now after 600 miles it seems fine. It actually got better after 300 miles. Coming to the stereo, it is really crisp and clear. The bass is not booming, but very crisp. I could notice a lot of difference between the ipod and a flash drive. The flash drive was much more clear. Alpine White really suits it well and my car gets a lot of head turns wherever I go. Overall, I am very impressed with the new e92 m3 and I am sure everyone of you will be too. I cannot think of any negative aspect now, I will keep you posted as soon as I find one. Here are a few pics.

P.S- Can someone suggest a good window tint for my car? I want to go with something around 30-35%. But, I am not sure which brand and model is the best.

Outstanding pics! Love the real-life setting of those pics. Some of that area actually looks like it is around me. M3 looks good out on the road.
Those taillights are sinister!

Beautiful car!! As for tint, if you have Comfort Access you have to go with a ceramic tint so the tint doesn't interfere with electronics. I went with F1 35%.

I do have comfort access. So, I think I will go with F1 35% too. But, I have to go like 70 miles for it. Worth it? I can get solar guard here. How do you think it is?

I haven't taken one yet. I will post as soon as I take one. The extended leather is awesome. It's really soft and the quality of the leather is really nice. But, I am not sure if it is worth $1100.
