Awesome! Another Alpine White beauty. Congrats! Specs?

Let's see the interior. It looks like a single hump car. It appears to be very close to what I will be ordering later this year.

BTW, it is a night and day difference between the e46 and e92 in terms of suspension. This car is much more comfortable to ride in than the e46. On comfort setting the car was a very nice road car. When you bump it up to the stiff mode I do feel a difference on the highway. The bumps and seams are more pronounced and harsh...

I really do not want to comment on the acceleration until after the break in period which I will follow to a T.

Nice car, and congrats!

The second pic reinforces my opinion that the 18's look more aggressive (read: better) than the 19's. Have fun!
