Lightbulb The Great White

Hi all.
Iīd first of all like to officially introduce my car & myself. Iīve ordered a brand new M3 E92 DCT (DKG) in Alpine white which is scheduled to arrive very soon!
I know : but I decided to start off like this & keep the tension growing as the days count down. Kinda like having you all suffer with me so the waiting doesnīt kill me alone.

Pics will follow soon though promise
My name is Chris (Oh no not another one, yes I hear this a lot in other forums) and I work in Switzerland but track the roads of the real car loverīs Highway.. GERMANY !!
This is my second V8 M but as my old 400 horses started to get just that.. old, missarable, stupid & contancerous I decided to shoot them, ALL of them !! (pic is for the horse )

Now that 420 new white arabian thoroughbreads are in the stable it felt only fitting to leave my "older" forums & catch up with a new breed of the fresher species
Iīm not much of a writer I more like to read but do have some input on BMWs as this is now my 7th & Iīd like to offer my help if and whenever I can.
Some great posts in here & up front:

Thank you to the creator(s), owner(s), administrator(s) & sponsors of this site for having us come together & talk about our favourite topic Mīs

PICS R HERE !!!

Hi Booforty & thanks
CF roof was not an option cause I wanted a sunroof again after a long time without one and TBH everyone has a carbon roof now & itīs become kinda common now which no longer makes it that special. So I just decided not to.
Donīt misunderstand me though I love the CF roof & if I had nothing in the car & just wanted to use it on the track I wouldnīt have bothered with even the leather and all the goodies. My car is a fun car for the weekends & should have a certain practicability to it.

Have you driven the Stelvio Pass yet? I'm going to do it next year and drive on to Lake Garda and Modena, then back up the San Bernadino Pass to Lake Constance
