Sorry Julie I called you a Fellow in the reply above (post 60) my bad (must have been the excitement of the moment, you know all about that I'm sure). When will your car be due? Why no money after today? Planning to go shopping

I don't drive it everyday, but just looking at it, makes me happy. And to share the passion and the stories with fellow enthusiasts is awesome. Can't wait to see more pics of your car!
It is a gift that has quite a few meanings and therefore it will be truley enjoyed

It is snowing this morning and my snow tire appointment is only for the 6th/12 ... I may have to make it a white photo shoot in my drive way ... then the snow will turn into rain I know based up on the forecast ... stand by for the photos they will be done soon.

Hey no problem! I totally get your excitement, and I hope you float on Cloud 9 for as long as the feeling will last.

I said I have no money left because I reached a deal with my dealer a lot faster than I thought I would. So I signed my money away.... I better not mention to my husband that I want anything car related for the next.... 100 years, lol. In reality, he encouraged me to get what I want because he knew I have worked very hard and long in my life for the money I make now but I'm the car nut in the couple.... When he tells me he wants to buy something he likes, it doesn't usually involve as many zero's on the pricetag...

Rolf,
Welcome to the LeMans Blue club. Best standard M3 color in my opinion. Only color I prefer is Laguna Seca blue, but that is another $5k. Hope you enjoy your new ride. Just turned over 3k miles on my '11 Sedan on Sunday.

Thank you ... I remember your write up from last March when you took delivery at the US performance centre great write up BTW. As for the colour ... well it is one of the best for sure on my last 6 BMW's I had dark dark silver, grey, silver, alpine white, orion silver then alpine white again ... it was time for a change and I kind of fell in love with this Le Mans Blue Metallic.

One day I'll write a story (write up) how I managed to purchase and trade 4 BMW's in only 2 years ... people will think I'm crazy however there is a story to be told should make for interesting reading

Thank you ... it is the first new one I now have since 1999 and it feels great ... looking forward of taking her on our first vacation trip ... I am planning a road trip next summer to Bowling Green to the Corvette factory and museum with a good friend of mine he loves Corvettes I will prove to him how great a M3 is

Congratulation on your new car again as well

I have to check if there is a LBM photo thread and post a few pic form my planned photo shoot.

Cheers,

Thanks guys! I will set up my own thread shortly, as I need some final advice on options

The car will likely go into production in Feb, although my CA is aware I may delay if there is news of some special editions or options available at the very end of production. The chances of course would be slim that I could even get my hands on something like that, even if they were produced and the price would be reasonable (probably won't be coming to NA or the price will be too high for my liking). But the husband also doesn't want me to delay .

I'm really looking forward to potential Ontario meets this summer....

LMB is amazing. It is the best (non individual) color for the head turning effect on the E9x M... IMHO of course.
