2 1/2 months later, my E90 is here.

I ordered a E90 Space Grey M3 mid-July and I finally got to pick it up at the PDC on Friday. You don't know what you're missing if you don't pick up your car in S.C. From the minute you land at the airport and there's a new BMW GT waiting to pick you up, Wet skidpad driving, laps around their track in an M3, drifting in the M5, X5 offroad experience, factory tour and the time they take to go over everything on your new car, it's just amazing. They really take car of you. We even loaded up on Red Bulls and snacks from their cafeteria for the long drive back home.

Anyways, enough about that...here are some pics. By the time I got back from S.C., UPS had already delivered some packages from IND (Edition Grill, Gill, Side Markers) and Dinan Exhaust which should be going on tonight or tomorow.

Now, I just need another 500 miles on it so I can get the first service done already and really get to enjoy it.


Edition Grill, Gill and Painted Markers already on. Took about 10 mins.



It's not Akra quality welds and finish, but should sound good and it was on sale at Dinan.com for $2200

You'll be happy with the Dinan exhaust. Get plenty of compliments on sound.

Car looks fantastic - I'm going to be picking up the near identical twin (Space Gray/ZCP E90 M3) soon and bringing her back to S. Fla. as well. Curious as to how long it took you to drive back down. Did you consider having the car shipped from the Performance Center? Right now I'm split between driving it down (but I'd rather put the engine through a number of heating cooling cycles during the early break in) and getting a transport company to pick it up after I take delivery.
