I LOVE this CAR.
That's pretty quick. I was told it takes two days.

I have the day off tomorrow so it would be nice if the pickup was tomorrow too. One more vacation day I can save.

Great news VS! Hope we were on the same truck. I'll respect David's day off today but he's getting a call in the morning ASAP! I'd love to pick it up Wednesday. Never heard back on the Clear Bra from David so at this point I'll probably just skip it unless it can be done tomorrow or Wednesday. I don't want the car held up any longer. Summit is in view.............

Car came in with yours. It's there! Stupid Droid phone sucks. Service was "shut off" so I never knew David left me a message. Just have to coordinate pick up now.

Got mine yesterday.

Repairs weren't made on my car at the VPC... not too happy about that. David's working on seeing what's up with that so I'm hoping I get it resolved soon.

Don't want to mess up this thread so I started one here:
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=455564

I'll post up pictures this weekend once the car gets clearbra+detail. I'm also getting the small rock chips fixed before it goes to get detailed.

Finally! Congrats VS! Must feel great. Sorry to hear about the VPC issue but I'm sure it will work out in the end. Enjoy!

Tomorrow is the big day for me. David's been teasing me with pictures of the front carbon splitters and rear spoiler installed. Can't wait!

Congrats! Post up some pics


Nightmare is still going for me and I have the car already haha. I made some progress with my damage since it's been approved for fixing.

Now to deal with service departments

After a long day I'm finally home with my new M3. Took 5+ hours of traveling this morning to Maryland due to traffic. Ride home was great. Love this car. Averaged 21 MPG- not too bad.

Here are some pictures before I left NW this afternoon. Car is a little dirty as I told David I would do my own washing and detailing.

Installed on the car: OEM Performance Front Splitters and Rear Spoiler, OEM Edition Series grills and side vents (light tint courtesy of IND), IND painted reflectors, gloss black hood vents, and Ventureshield on front bumper, lights, and side skirts. Euro plates still on the car

The front splitters and rear spolier look absolutely incredible in person. Pictures don't treally do them justice. Really satisfied with them.

Finally! The car looks great man. Very aggressive! Make sure you have a real photoshoot when it gets cleaned.

Mine is very dirty at the moment also. I'll be taking it to Cliff to get it detailed + clearbra this Saturday! I'll throw up a photoshoot after that

I just popped in my front reflectors today as my first mod haha. I'll be working my way up there soon though.

On the bright side I got my wheel repair approved and it'll be taken care of from Tischer BMW in MD.

VS and Fsarc. I am both relieved and extremely happy you both have your M3s!!! It was good to see you both. I must say that the staff at Northwest was sad to see those beasts leave. How fitting that they arrived side-by-side on the transport, lol.

FSarc- the cosmetic mods were tasteful and instantly changed your M3 to an even more aggressive animal. You were right about the carbon fiber components. The black chrome additions really made the look pop. Well done! I can't wait to see pics after a proper detail.

VS- I am happy the wheel issue has been resolved. Cliff and his team do a great job with the installations. I'm sure you know that by now. He has a great eye for detail. Enjoy the M3 now that it's finally home.

Regards,
David

David- it was a pleasure to finally meet you! I must give you another public thank you for a truly outstanding experience from start to finish. You are a true BMW and M enthusiast and it shows. This car is incredible and I can't stop driving it. Huge step up from my 335xi. Been getting tons of compliments on the spoiler and splitters and the color as well. An M3 in LMB is not that common I guess. Did a full detail and a short write up about it here:

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=458501

Happy Thanksgiving!
