She's 1 day old in my possession!

Hi, peeps!
So.. a short intro about me, I started doing research on the e9x m3 thinking I'd pick it up in 2 yrs used and posted a few questions here. Then I found out about the 08 deals and a week later... I am an OWNER!
This feels almost unreal. I guess the good old saying of "there's always a bright side to everything" really fits the bill in my case. Bad economy, but dream car in my garage and she's new too!!

I won't post pictures since it just feels like a dime a dozen, but she's very special to me.
08 E90, 6sp, 18"s, AW with black interior + carbon leather, tech, premium, comfort, cold packages, rear shades and parking sensors. So I think it's fully loaded. Not sure what else I can be missing.

Anyways, this is my 4th BMW but my first M and sadly I don't think I can own a non-M anymore (bad for my finance.. sigh.. hehe).

Other than that very nice.

Thanks for the welcome. Some people asked me why I didn't go for a used 997 for around 55k and I tell them "why get a porsche when I can get a 414HP, 5seater?" and none of them has yet to give me an answer. haha

I will post some pix later, probably in the Pix section in the near future. For now, I am busy learning about the car and driving the car.
I think I will be in for the 1200 mile service A LOT sooner than I thought!

They are superb. Very friendly and they really make sure you walk away happy. Let me know if you are looking for a car. I will give you my guy's name.

Sweet! Same thing happened to me; I had the 135i for a year before being able to get the 'M'. Never thought I could afford one to be honest--hurray for the bad economy!!! oh....wait....

Nah...I was just curious. My friend works at Stevens Creek. I have bought several cars from him and he always takes good care of me and my wallet
