Mx3's New Ride: Finally!

First off, thank you to everyone who has posted the new M3 pictures over the past year; it made the long wait a lot easier to deal with.

This is an early production DCT car that I received 2.5 weeks ago and I have not had the time to write a review, which will come later. For now I'm really enjoying the dynamic range of comfort and performance and how stunning it is in person. Pics just don’t do it justice but hopefully you enjoy these. Thanks

Hey MX3 where are you located? I too seem to have one of the only DCT's in N.CA. Just picked up Friday and am getting the bra and tint done as we speak...

I will post a ton of pictures when I get my car back since the weather is going to be amazing these days.

In Northern CA near Redwood City. I had clear installed on the whole front end so there are no seams. Tint will be installed later.
When I picked my car up, no one had ever seen a DCT car and there a lot of buzz around it. I still have yet to see another New M3 other than my own.

Yes, moonroof, have to here in CA where the weather is nice most of the time. The added bonus of having the moonroof is when it is open is that you can hear exhaust notes even better.

Yes, I have thought about it and will get one down the line.

Thanks!

I plan on doing a review on M-DCT later, but for now, all I can say it is fantastic. It's a big improvement over my M3 with SMG, the shifts are extremely smooth when driven in a docile way, and agressivly fast when you demand it. It's really dynamic in that way.
