Finally bought an E92!

I finally bought my e92! I had been searching for 2 weeks now and just bought the last brand new 08 DCT coupe in the nation from Fields BMW in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Space Grey
Silver novillo
Tech
Premium
Cold weather
Enhanced premium sound
Carbon fiber roof
Carbon fiber trim

Any advice for a new m3 driver? Just need some tips and advice on breaking in the engine and whatever is important. Thanks

vary your rpm's/
stay under 5500/
stay out of the intense shift settings and power mode(not necessary but makes it easier to not cross 5500rpm)/
have fun.

MSRP was $70,770, I got it for 60k, so almost an 11k discount. Not bad for a loaded coupe with DCT.

Thanks all! Cant wait until next week. Wednesday or thursday is when the car should arrive. This wait is killing me, I am a student and I cant even study for my exams next week without looking at pictures and reading about M's every 10 minutes.

Nice catch. I'm still searching for an 08 E92. Did you come across any other dealers with 08's left?

I found a few used 08 coupes. There is one at San Diego Automotive thats AW/FR and loaded with DCT and 7,500 miles. The guy is asking $62,900 and wouldn't go lower than 61k. I didn't go for that one because I got this brand new one for 60k. Call and ask to speak with Maj. Don't know if you are going to get a great deal from him though, he thinks just because the color combination of the car is nice that he's going to get an extra 5 or 6k. Also, he was a very rude guy.

I found another 08 AW/FR loaded and MT with 8000 miles, almost the same as the one above but they are asking 7k lower and you could probably negotiate from there. http://www.coasttocoastimports.com/i...showleftmenu=N

As far an new 08 coupes go, just search on Autotrader and call some dealers, they may have some left over that are not listed.
