My 2009 e92 picked up Friday.

Friday I picked up a 2009 M3 after a long 1 week wait. I had originally had a 2010 on order until I found out the best rate I could get was 6.6 because of the ED pickup.

The car now has just over 400 miles on it from a quick trip to the mountains on my way back from atlanta. Originally, I had planned to go up to the tail of the dragon but it was raining too hard. Instead, I drove the parkway and a good run up and down NC151 then the back roads home.

My impressions....WOW. Even taking it easy on the engine the car is a hell of a lot of fun. On the rain soaked mountain roads it preformed wonderfully and predictably. The mDCT is much better than I had expected and I did not notice any lag at all. Once I got back on somewhat level roads the car averaged 22.4mpg between 70 and 80mph.

Next, I can't wait to get the engine broke in and really have some fun.

This is all the shots that I had time to take this week....I could not stop driving it after I sign the paperwork.

Just kidding. Stupid typing mistake on my part. Maybe I really did want an e92 more.

In the first pic, the car shines like a wet liquid clearcoat. Nice color. I like the E92 with 2 optional doors.

I think I can just barely see an E92 M3 in the back of the lot in the first pic. Looks great!

Nice car bro...congrats. What is interesting is how they are strategically placing the efficient dynamics sticker on all new cars. I had to remove mine immediately after delivery.
