My UK spec E92 M3

After 6 weeks without a car, I finally found time to sort out a new one and here's the spec:

E92 M3 Coupe V8 4.0
Silverstone II metallic paint
Black Novillo Leather
19" M Double-spoke alloys
Carbon interior leather trim
Electronic Damper Control (EDC)
Bluetooth phone prep and telematics
BMW Connected Drive-Assist
Voice Control
DAB Digital Radio
LOGIC7 Professional Hi-Fi System
USB interface
CD Changer
Park Distance Control front and rear (PDC)
Exterior trim high-gloss shadowline
Electric folding exterior mirrors
Adaptive headlights
Front seat heating
Front sliding armrest
Extended storage
Velour floor mats

To describe her in one word... AWESOME!!!
In the words of Jeremy Clarkson, the car is "poised, balanced and precise... what a car... what a masterpiece!!"

Matt (mjh93sa) joined me at the dealer when I collected the car yesterday and we put the M through its paces in the Cotswolds. Superb driving roads and it ended up being the first "unofficial" South West meet!!

All pictures are thanks to Matt. I did take some on my own camera and some videos of the exhaust/sound but I somehow lost my camera during all the excitement!!

It will take a while for it to sink in, so I'll review the car at a later date but if you have any initial questions feel free to ask.

Enjoy the pictures. Matt you are a star!!

I will start off with some teasers. Check back soon for more!!

You may want to take that back. They put the steering wheel on the wrong side. Use it well.

That's pretty funny, because that same thought went through my head when looking at the second set of photos. I've had silver BMWs for over ten years, since my Titanium Silver E36 M3, so it makes it easier for me to stick by my Space Gray choice. SSII is looking real nice in those pics, though. Beautiful car.

Wow it looks stunning, and so does the 330d. Great roads. Nice to see the steering is on the "right" side.

Very - The blue shine in the SSII appears clearly yet in a subtle manner.

Awesome pics!

Do you happen to know if there is a difference in ride height between US Spec and Euro Spec, as there was with the e46 M3?

Glad to see some proper pictures of SSII. Thanks for sharing and congrats.

P.s. Based on the last pic, I now see where Jeremy Clarkson got the image of the stereotypically M3 driver...where is your bluetooth earpiece

You beat me to it. The sad thing is, when he was talking to Hammond in the classroom talking about building a spreadsheet to show which car is better, I realized that I am that M3 driving douchebag that Clarkson was making fun of. (All except the Bluetooth. I dug his sunglasses and shirt, though.)
