Finally pics of my new E90

So I finally got some pictures taken of my new 2011 E90. I know we have all seen a AW E90 before but thought I would share. Second to the last new 6 speed in the country. So far 604 miles after 4 weeks. Can't wait for the run in.

it is somewhat of a stripper:

Competition Package
Navigation and Bluetooth
USB Ipod
Cold Weather
Alarm
Sunroof
Black Leather
Carbon Leather trim
BMW Apps.

Only mods so far are LUX.

No, LUX was simple once you figure out how to drop the bulbs in backwards. Once that was done it took 5 minutes. Loving this thing so far, Replaces a 1M and 1M was a great car but this is so much more.

Very nice!

Do you mind disclosing what kind of deal you got? MSRP, or MSRP minus $x,xxx? Or Invoice plus $xxx? Thanks.

With the $1500 rebate/dealer cash I got basically invoice. Then with BMWCCA I am well under. If it was an E92 the deal could have been better but they were sticking heavier than normal that this was one of the last E90's and really almost the last manual, which is also why I was looking and buying when I did. I think the deal was fair.

I know what the term stripper means which is why I used somewhat a stripper. Basically no premium package, manual seats no comfort access no PDC no enhanced stereo no DCT. Compared to my X5M it's a stripper.

Sounds like you did get a very good deal.

Not that it matters, but I wonder if this was a previous customer ordered car that a customer renegged on? I always thought that when dealers order for "inventory" they usually order "equipped" since that is where they make more profit, not in "stripped" models.

Really?!

Ive been curious on if i should have waited till the 1M to come out when i bought my car. What are you biggest differences that make you love the M3 over the 1m other then the obvious practicality. Good to hear i made the right decision though.

I'm not sure this particular car was originally ordered by another dealer and my dealer had it shipped to them from the port through a trade. They were trying to get as many E90's as they could at the end of production. Not how I would have ordered the car but pickings were slim.

Biggest difference between the 1M and the M3 was driveablity for me. I didn't have the 1M very long but the one thing about that car was that it was always on 100%. What I like so far about the M3 is it can be driven peacefully and very comfortably when you want or need and then all out when you want it. 1M was a screamer from the get go. Don't get me wrong it too was a fun car and amazing to drive, just after driving it I almost felt worn out and couldn't wait to get back the civility of my X5M.

Also in the 1M, it seemed at least to me that the build quality wasn't quite there, it showed that it was a parts bin car just on how things were put together and the parts that were used. This is just me but little things like the digital displays didn't match up with each other, seats were simply 135 sport seats not speciifc seats like in the M3. Just little things. But it sure as he77 looked cool.

I love the aggressive stance on them but there still a little too stubby looking, they have a used VO 1m at my local dealer with 12k on it already and are asking 60k, they're nuts.

Nice purchase man! Very rare to see an e90 M3 ZCP that has a 6 speed.

Two questions:
--> Is the IB ZCP 6 speed too?

--> How bout the demo on black in Chicago? Is it ZCP 6 speed as well?
