2011 BMW M3  [0.00]
Ordered a 2011 M3 yesterday

Yesterday I ordered a 2011 M3 Coupe Pack Competition in Mineral White Metallic on Black Novillo Leather (Mineral White Metallic is a new colour for the M3. This colour was previously reserved for F01 7 Series. Colour Code is A96). I have already seen a Mineral White 750Li and I liked this colour. I think I will be happy with that.

I sold my 2006 Z4M to a good friend of me. The reason of the change is mainly because I want more room space.

The M3 will arrive in september.

Congrats!

So, no deliveries before August? Hu...

I'm curious about this Mineral White Metallic... I am sure it will make this ZCP M3 stunning!

I would assume it's because he's located in Europe.

Congratulations! I hope to see pics of your car when it arrives. September will come soon enough. I'm interested in seeing Mineral White as it is not available on M3's here. I'm sure it will look great! What over options did you order in addition to the ZCP?

LOL, like the pearl white on Lexus cars, very suspect

Congrats on your 2011 order! The wait is the worst part.

I heard they crush cars in Switzerland if you're caught doing x amount over the speed limit AND that tickets go up in price if your net worth is substantially high(er). ????

Thanks for your comments

Here is a sample of Mineral White Metallic:http://www.7post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=176592
It will be cool if I can compare this colour with an AW M3.

This colour is available since June in Europa. It's not an Individual Color. I will do some pics when the car will be arrived.

@ sig5x: Concerning options:
(I copied them from a PDF and in french, sorry):

Contrôle électronique des amortisseurs (EDC) 223
Alarme antivol 302
Kit rétroviseurs extérieurs 313
Sans désignation de modèle 320
Pare-brise climatisé confort 358
Tapis de sol en velours 423
Triangle de présignalisation et trousse de 1er secours 428
Rétroviseur intérieur anti-éblouissement automatique 431
Sièges avant à réglage él. avec mémoire pour siège conducteur 459
Réglage en largeur du dossier 490
Ensemble de rangement 493
Chauffage des sièges conducteur et passager avant 494
Accoudoir a l'avant coulissant 4AE
Bag.intérieures recouvertes de cuir noir a structure carbon 4MY
Lave-projecteurs 502

Radio BMW Professional 663
Système hauts-parleurs hi-fi Harman / Kardon

Vitres teintées pare-soleil
Ciel de pavillon anthracite
Kit Competition

NOTICE: several of these options are included in the basic price which is KCHF 107 (around KUSD 100) in Switzerland.

To resume: Everything except GPS, DKG and extended leather.

@ kaykay: It's true concerning tickets...
But there is few radars on mountain roads. We have to be careful if we see that there are straight line without danger or on autobahn.

This will be the land of game of the M3 (between Montreux and Sierre):

http://maps.google.fr/maps?f=q&sourc...55374&t=h&z=11

The Z4M was very funny to drive on mountains roads. I hope that the ZCP M3 will be too even if it's heavier.

Cheers,

Ludo

this.

Alpine White, the classic BMW racing color. When all other germans jumped ship to grey, BMW were the only ones sporting this color. Its part of the heritage

i think MW is for those who want the car to look more pretty and so it can match their handback and manolo pumps

I compared AW and Mineral White Metallic side by side at the dealership yesterday. The best way to compare it to think of the difference between jet black and black sapphire metallic. Mineral white has the shiny metal flakes in the paint. I only compared them in direct sunlight and Mineral White looks more off-white (has a slight darker-yellowish tint) to it compared to alpine white. It's really hard to tell the difference from a distance unless the 2 cars are parked next to each other. But I suppose that's the same between BSM and jet black. Mineral white seems slightly shinier as well.

I ended up putting an order for alpine white because I like the color a little better and save $500 for other options. Doesn't hurt that it's BMW's classic racing color. But the difference is subtle and they both look great. Can't go wrong either way.

I thank you a lot for your comparison !

I like a lot AW. It's great that MW and AW are closed.

The other good new of the day for me is that my car is *150 Production Started*

I hope that I will get it for the end of the month.

The plant is shut down for the month of August...you will likely see an early September completion date and delivery to follow within the month depending on destination time. If you have your production number, you should be able to call and get a more accurate estimate of completion.

I called my dealership today and she told me that the car was in production but she didn't precise that the plant was shut down... you kill my evening !

@ mdosu: I think it's a standard option.


Concerning my M3 I hope I will receive a call from my dealership before the end of this week. I can't wait !
