Comiserations Dee. You really have joined the old farts club! I guess once you reach your Carlesberg years you stop yearning for the ultimate driving machine and switch to the people that took down Chrysler.

I am looking forward to seeing you take the letters of the sidewalls on this beast. LOL.

Thanks Al, yes looking forward to that also. I decided to not settle for Mercedes's poor cousin (That's BMW) and go for the real deal. You know, the people that invented the car!

See ya at the track!!

Very nice. If I was getting a hardtop I think I would have gone the same direction after many years with BMW. However, I had decided this year we were going back to a vert. Merc only has the E Class in a 4 seater vert albeit a very nice car and priced very well against the competition,it is cruiser.

Enjoy the wheels!

I hear that BMW had lots of issues with their hardtop vert, and supposedly moving back to soft top in the version.

I don't believe they have had a lot of issues at all. I know of many without any issues. However, the issue they have it is a useable boot. Audi and Merc both have gone back to a supper quiet soft top, extremely fast up and down and the almost 80% of the trunk is useable versus less than 50% in the BMW. I would have loved to see the soft top now but in the long run I might be better of with the retractable hard top in GTA. I pick up mine tomorrow morning.

I ordered a M3 E93 (DCT), 19" Wheels with every option possible (no boxes left to select).

Individual Color - Azurite Black with Fox Red Interior (Not extended) and Piano Black Trim.

I have a few small projects planned once I break in the M, working with IND and Dinan. For the exterior (all from IND - thanks for the help Nate) I am replacing the yellow reflectors with Azurite reflectors, replecing the front and side grill with Edition Black and adding the VRS painted front poly lip.

As for performamnce mods, I have decided to work with Dinan locally here (Budds BMW Dinan - Tks Brent and Ted) in the Toronto area. I am set up to add the Underdrive Crankshaft Pulley, High Flow Intake, Free Flow Exhaust and finally the Software Tune. Nothing too major but a good start for my first time doing mods since I was a kid working on my 1972 Ford Capri-build and designed in Germany of course(many years ago).

Seriously, where are you hearing this?

No issues at all whatsoever with mine and its running strong and coming up to its 2 year anniversary...anywho congrats on the new ride...

So Dee, Im confused now...when you wanted the M3 you wanted 6 speed and no DCT strictly, and now you settled for a slush box...

Amen to that....a souped up civic can as well

If you want a four door (and you are ageing) then the merc is a consideration, but really the M3 coupe is a gorgeous car ... sorry the C looks a little like a taxi to me (have you been to Munich lately )... sorry not.

I hope not.The soft roofs kept my wife out of both the E550 & S5 cabs.Our last 7 cabs have been folding hardtops.Our 2007 335 had a few minor rattle issues when it was new and other than that was great!

I have two kids, so the 4 door helps. It is my taxi.
