More M3 Pics from Center BMW...

Went to a dealership for service this morning and snapped some pics of IB E92 and JB E90. IB showed more purple than I had previously seen in photos but still looked good to me! 18"s also looked lighter than I thought, closer to say Space Gray(although darker) than Graphite. I think the colors in the photo are pretty accurate. E92 had brushed aluminum trim, which looked better than I thought. Steering wheel felt exactly the same thickness as my M-tech one but I actually prefer the perforated leather feel. One thing I didn't like on the interior was that the center trim around the shifter was not aluminum but plastic. Why didn't they match the trims through-out?
Seat bolsters were so nice, much beefier than my regular E92.

Jet Black E90 looked awesome, although I am personally not a huge fan of the E90 tail lights. Still the car looked very aggressive, the front end looked fantastic in JB! 19"s looked great with JB E90, although I noticed they were less concave than 18"s.

That's all, enjoy the pics. Sorry these are crappy phone pics.

No this was 6MT. I didn't ask about the test drive, I am afraid I won't be able to control the dark forces around my wallet once I test drive.

I didn't see any mark-ups on the pricing sheet. I think the IB E92 was something like $69~71k but not sure. What a beast....
