Finally got it - 2011 E92 Mineral White (poor iPhone pics only)

Longest wait I've ever endured (at least emotionally) is finally over. Picked up the car on the 28th and after an entire December with no snow in Toronto, close to 5cm fell that night - it's a good thing the dealer installed the winters on delivery and I had an appointment to head straight to the detailer and Clear Bra installer (for GTA folks, Marco @ Advanced Mobile and Kevin at **************** - unreal work by two car-obsessed professionals)

Car is unreal and I could not have predicted how much I love this car, including how amazing (and fun) the DCT is.

Specs are:
2011.75 Mineral White E92
MDrive
DCT
Exec Package
Novillo Leather
EDC
Carbon Black Leather Trim
Attached Images

As for mods, IND reflectors are on their way (and can't arrive soon enough), going to order Angel Eyes and trying to figure out what to do on the performance spoiler (paint-match the front or leave all CF) and eventually going to add a rear-diffuser

Sort of - bought off a private seller who used them sparingly over two seasons, and he happened to have them stored at the dealership I bought my car from

but otherwise, yup, it's the dealer recommended package with PA3s

Congrats! But you need to add better pictures soon!

A couple of questions if you don't mind.
  1. Did you ask the dealer not to do take the plastic off the seats and not to clean the car at all? Did you then take it straight to Kevin to detail?
  2. How much of your car did you clear bra?
Reason I'm asking is because I'm thinking of doing the exact same thing!

Thanks.

I tried to ask them to minimize how much they do for prep but apparently they have to remove the plastic and do a minimum amount of prep - I left it at saying "do the absolute minimum" and then drove it straight to Kevin and Marco to do their work.

As for the Clear Bra, I did the full hood, front bumper, headlights, fenders and rear wheel impact area.

Thanks Giccy Gic! I think I will do the same.

Actually the dealer only has to perform the PDI. They do not have to remove any of the interior plastic (not even the plastic tray that sits over the pedals), exterior plastic (including white plastic on hood, roof and trunk) and rubber trim on doors, nor install the front license plate bracket - this is how all of my M3s have been delivered. I then had a new car prep performed by a local detailer.
