Smile Ordered 2011 E92 M3 for PDC in July!!!

After a lot of debate, going back and forth with my wife, I finally got to order the car I've been dreaming about. She has an SC430 and thought we should add a four door car so I almost bought a 550i gran turismo. Every time I test drove it, it just didn't feel right. I wanted something a lot more fun. She finally gave in and decided to trade her car in when we need 4 doors (kids). Anyway, I'm like a kid on christmas eve and can't wait until July gets here. I'm scouring the forums looking for potential mods. I was debating between a Cayman S, Audi s5, and the M3. The Cayman S just felt too cramped (I'm over 6' and 210 lbs), the s5 was great and loved that exhaust and interior, but it lacked soul to me. I decided on the m3 because even though the interior and looks aren't as flashy as the s5, the m3 had soul and drives like dream. My PCD is on July 6th..

My Baby:
Electronic Damping Control
M Double-clutch Transmission with Drivelogic

I'm scheduled for a PC delivery July 12th. I owned a Cayman S, great car, but it's hard to compare with the M3. If you need any of the features offered by a sports sedan, I don't think you can do better than an M3.
