Just picked up new 2011 M3!

After going back and forth on several different M3s I finally sealed the deal on a new 2011 e92 today. Car is pretty much bare bones, with just the Aluminum trim and CF roof as options, but I am loving it so far. I came to this from a 335is and it is definitely a whole different driving experience. Thanks to those who gave me advice during this process, and I will try and get some pics up tomorrow.

You made a great choice ... the less options the better you be able to feel the magic of this fine driving machine as long as you have six on the floor you are indeed in total control

Do post some pictures when it stops raining

I love spartan M3's, especially with the clean, simple, "one hump" dash.

Congrats. The red really looks great in your pics. A rich, bright red. Is it that way in real life? Some of the pics I've seen make it seem a little more pale...
