Scott just did my car. if you email me at dscheduler@gmail.com then I can email you pics of my car. my car is silver so it's hard to get a good wet shine unless you know the products well.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

+1000 congrats man! I am (hopefully) going to be ordering my SG E92 very soon

Btw, you mentioned the X6 never caught your attention. Head to a BMW dealer one day and ask to test drive an X6 M. You'll probably want to trade your M3 in for one of those immediately. My dad has a SG X6 M and that car is unbelievably comfortable and smooth, handles great and is quite FAST!!!

Hey everyone!! I know I've bee MIA for a while! Life has been quite hectic this past month or so. However, I'm happy to report that the M is doing wonderful! I have about 1150 miles on her so just a few more to go! With God's grace, I haven't had any issues with her thus far (i.e. rattles, scary malfunctions, etc). She is a dream and the constant stares and compliments definitely attest to that.

Regarding the responses to my write-up: WOW. I'm speechless. I didn't expect such a wonderful response. I'm really glad that you all enjoyed reading it as much as I did writing it (once I actually got going that is). I hope it helps bide the time for those that are going through the agonizing wait and it helps others that may be on the fence about doing Performance Center Delivery!

Lol, I thought the same thing at first glance! But it's not real. Although, I'm sure someone has indeed lost their leg (or some limb) on the Tail

Good to hear from you again, Yogi!

50 miles should be complete today, right? With service tomorrow? And a weekend of Wide Open Throttle to follow?
