My new IB Sedan

I've been watching this board for a while now, and joined today to show off my new toy. I know a few other people have been asking to see cars with the 18's, so here it is. The car looks better than I could imagine. The differences between the regular E90 and the M3 E90 transform the car into something entirely different! It looks incredibly aggressive, especially in person. The Interlagos/bamboo color combination turned out well, too. The bamboo has more brown in it than I thought, and none of the orange that I've seen in some other posts. It's also darker than the Sand color in my E46.

(Sorry about the poor picture quality. I'll try to use a better camera next time.)

I thought about this color combo as well. Would be interested to see more interior pics if you have them. How do you like the wood trim?

I like the warm colors for the interior, so this was really the only choice. I think it looks great with the bamboo, but it's a matter of taste. It doesn't look very brown at all against leather color.

It was a preorder - exactly the way I wanted it. I'd been on the list for a couple of years. I put my name in before the sedan was even announced. I got the call the last week in January from Mark Carvalho at JMK (who by the way was fantastic to work with). Mark pulled a lot of strings to get the car delivered by yesterday so I could surprise my son, who's going back to school tomorrow.

I got your PM Monsta, thanks. You and the rest of the Jersey owners should join me at CCA events this year.

Thanks for wood/18" pics

Great pics - thanks for posting. very helpful to those of us choosing a sedan+18"+wood trim...makes the decision much easier....i like the selection...i am leaning towards SSII but the IB looks great as well! Even the rear lights are beginning to look 'acceptable'!!

Wow, I like the wood, I didn't think I would but it does look nice.

I added you to the March Delivery Roll Call, what was your date of delivery?

Are you in the NJ chapter or the Delaware Valley Chapter of the CCA?
