New to BMW and M3

Hey guys just thought I'd say hi. I just picked up a 2009 M3 Jet Black on Saturday. So far I love the car, but I do have a ton of rookie questions about the car so I hope all of you will bare with me. This is my first BMW and have prior been wrapped up in the Mustang world. I also have a 2008 Shelby GT500 that I love, but it's kinda the Beast and the M3 is the Beauty. Looking forward to learning all about this car.

Congrats. Post some pics and search around the forum. I'm sure most of your "rookie questions" have been asked and answered before.

congrats. The GT might be a straight line hp beast but the M3 will smoke it on some tracks with turns.

Congrats and welcome to the M3!! I just traded my 2007 GT500 vert for an 2008 M3 vert!! Both amazing cars in their own right! The M3 is much more sophisticated and handles like a wet dream...but the GT500 will smoke it stop light to stop light - you can really feel the M is down 100hp and 200lbs of torque! I do miss the "instant on" of the GT500's 5.4L SC Monster V8 but overall I'm very happy with the M3. This being a new V8 for 2008 - there aren't a ton of mods out yet...I'm hoping for a handheld tuner and CAI package - similar to the JLT/EVO Tune combo I had on the GT500. Post pics of your new M3 (and your GT500 too) and enjoy the ride...it's sublime

Hotlap I'm 2006GT500 on Team Shelby, I just bought the JLT and Xcal from you. Odd running into you here. Here's some pics, please forgive the crappy shot of the M3 as it's taken with my iPhone and the weather is crappy here.
