Had I know I was going to track, I would've gotten a E92. Or, E90 with at least fold-down rear seats.

thats my exact combo...looks great but SG/FR was a good choice as well..it was actually my other choice

I didn't order mine, but got lucky and the dealer had ALMOST exactly what I wanted. Came with performance exhaust and I would have dropped that but would have added the extended leather! Looks SO good!

Funny, I ordered the Extended Leather, but kinda want the Performance Exhaust, now. I still like my EL, what about the Exhaust don't you like?

I really love the exhaust, sound is perfect but I need to get rid of my CATS and the M-Performance + Catless isn't pretty

OP ...

Well I would be patient and order it ED ... also make it M-DCT so my wife could share driving it with me

Got my 2012 from the dealer he found close to what I wanted.

Sam, the extended leather is nice difficult to add after, you can always add the exhaust

How is the e92 better suited to the track? It always amazes me how people never get the fold downs. I would think an essential thing. Just my opinion, not trying to rub it in or insult.

Just more stuff available for E92.

However, there is a counter-argument to this in that, due to the prominent B-pillars in E90, the structure is more rigid.

If I ordered my M3's, I would've definitely specified fold down seats. As they were, both M3's were just picked from what the dealers had at their lots (close match to what I was looking for).

Good move. IB is rare enough that it's almost like an individual color. And it is absolutely beautiful.

Agreed, and it's not that flashy. Very stealth, mean, and "mature" compared to Montego or LeMans

Of course, if I had ordered it with DCT, I would have answered this by saying I should have ordered a manual.

i agree - the Pana GTS drives good Too

Back on topic, I clicked everything off - so individual would have gone that bit extra - but I am completely satisfied with what I have as far as OEM Factory installed options are concerned
