Took Delivery Today - 2012 E92 M3 (6MT Space Grey)

Gents,

I've been a member of this forum only a short time, since December 2011, around the time that I finally decided to bite the bullet and order my new 2012 E92 M3.

I have to say, M3post has been an absolute WEALTH of knowledge which came in handy throughout the entire ordering/research and delivery process. I truly thank you all for sharing your knowledge and experiences and turning me into a very very very educated consumer/fellow M3 owner.

Today was the day I took delivery of my new baby. I'm working in Europe so I took delivery from a great sales outfit Pentagon BMW Sales near Kauserslauten, Germany (many thanks to my SA, Mathias Hemmer and Euler BMW for a very smooth and great experience all around).

I could hardly contain myself as I drove my new baby the 300 km trip home. I've never felt such a feeling as this car gives its driver. My last car was an S2000 and I had high expectations for the car. It certainly didn't dissapoint. It's a truly satisfying and addictive feeling to start up and drive this machine. Slow speeds, fast speeds, back roads, motorway...it's all brilliant. And, the 6spd manual is a thing of beauty. I feel no knotchiness/rough shifts. In fact, I find the shifts crisp and grin-inducing. And, the tech-package in the M3 is incredible. Automatic rain sensors, iPhone integration, a great satnav and features like comfort access, etc....it has everything. And, the great suspension set-up, firm but not jarring.......oh, and did I mention the seats.....what a machine.....I truly am in love and we've only just met ;-)

thanks again everyone and look forward to being a contributing member to M3post.

I've attached a few pics from today's experience. I hope these pics help you all relive your own "first day"
1) delivery :-)
2) winter set-up (blizzaks w/ breytons....thanks Ben @ TireRack for great service)
3) my first (of many) fuel fill-ups :-)
4) interior (complete w/ cheesy airbag warning I should have removed).

cheers,
Brian

A few things....

1. Congrats!!!
2. The girl behind you filling up her BMW doesn't look as happy as you.
3. The gas fumes are getting to the kid in the back seat.

I went SG and fox/black/black and mine is enjoying a leisurely cruise across the Atlantic right now. I imagine my smile will look much as yours, congrats!

Huge congrats!!! love the color!!!

About how much per gallon in USD for the good stuff you're pumping into the new car? I'm about a sneeze away from $5 a gallon here in the SF Bay Area.
