My JB M3 with BB Interior

Hey All,

Hope you guy's like the attached photo's. Have had the car for a little over a month now, and what can I say wow! This thing has completetly blown me away. I've had BMW's before, but never anything quite like this. In town you can drive around in "sedate " mode, get it out on the backroads hit the "M" button, and enjoy...... Of course it helps living in such a great country for driving, and having Germany next door for those moments when you just want to hit the gas. Can't wait for summer here, I'm going to hit the passes and have some fun.... In the mean time enjoy some of the photo's I have attached.

My previous BMW was Carbon Black, JB has taken some getting use to compared to that (IMHO). At first I was a little disappointed, but as time goes by it's grown on me and I like it more and more. I think the fact that looks different in various lights is actually adding to the attraction!! On top of that it's a M colour, so you don't see many other cars like this where I am....

Damn what kinda interior trim is that? Doesn't seem to be CF, they they look subtle yet damn sexy.

Time to get a set of nice wheels, those are too small for a M3!!!

I'm guessing it's the standard shadowline.

Thanks guy's

To answer your questions:
- The interior is Bambo Biege (code NCH3) with Titan Shadow (code 771)
- The wheels are 18", was a special offer from the dealer. They have my winter tyres on them. Come summer I change over to 19" M dobblespoke 220M wheels

I kinda wonder how well do these M3s give in turns of millage. I know gasoline in Europe is ridiculous so is this beauty still your daily driving machine?

I asked this because I just read nother member's thread about the European Delivery he was on and he said the gas was roughly $8-9 dollars per gallon, and it cost him around $100 USD to fill up the tank.

nope not my "daily drive", normally catch the train to work. Gas is so damm expensive here, parking in town a real pain, and an excellent train system. So leave the M3 for fun...

Noticed that you've skipped the High Gloss option. I will do the same- too expensive and gets stained easily

Thanks, much appreciated!! Well, to be honest, in the first day or two I thought maybe I should have gone with something else. But now, no regrets at all. I love the colour (yes I know many of you don't so so don't flame me for that), and it really grows on you more and more. Plus, there aren't any other cars out there with this paint job (except for other M cars) so it makes it just that little bit more special IMHO
