m3's in Kuwait?

I shipped my SSII from USA to Kuwait as I will be here for the next three years for my job. My baby arrived today, and I got to drive her home from the port. I am just wondering if there are any other M3 in Kuwait that would like to meet up and share stories and pics.

I Agree with all the above. The sand storms here are very bad. I have another car to drive on daily basis. I am not driving the car that much. It's parked in a garage, and also with a car cover on top of it. They do drive like idiots here, so I won't be driving her that much. I did drive her home from the port, but I drove real slow.
I had a few 911s hit the brakes hard to take a second look at the M3. The only one that wanted to play was a turbo. Of course, I didn't. But, non of the regular 911s tried to mess with me. I did have a freakin Mazda out of all things trying to get me to race. I just laughed at him, and slowed down to get out of his way.
The dealership here has ONE, and it's a demo. They are only placing orders for very special customers. Money is not an issue here, so they are limiting the numbers that way. I heard very bad things about the customer service here at the BMW dealers. They are all owned by the same family, so they don't really care about customer service because where else are you gonna go for parts or service. That's also a reason why I am not driving her that much. Also, I have to pay for services now that I am no longer in America. Oh, the gas prices here.. It's 70 cents a GALLON for premium unleaded. Also worth mentioning, some of the cops here drive super charged 5 series BMWs.

$0.70 a gallon for gas??? At least that's one benefit to being in Kuwait. Good luck, be safe, and take care of your M3!

Hey bro, welcome to kuwait my M3 is goin to be here late July, its AW/FR MDCT, is urs MT?
once i get mine we can group together with other M3 owners, my bro owns a e46 and my elder got a Z4

about the company..............what u said is right, its the worst customer service ull experience in your life, not to depress u, but thats the truth, ive taken my brothers e46 MANY times to the service when he was studyin abroad, a 1200miles service can take a week + if u know some1 here u can get discount for services and other parts, the dealer here dont know sht about cars, so goodluck with that anyway if u need anything dont hesitate

Be careful taking your car there if it isn't a GCC car.

I do have North America specs. What do you mean by what you said here.
what is GCC car?
Are the gulf cars different? The only difference I see is that I don't have front parking sensors.

GCC stands for Gulf Coast Cars. The biggest difference is since the car will be in 120f+ temps, the manufactr's add special additive to paint to protect it. Additionally, the cooling systems are different to handle the summer heat. If you plan on bringing the car back no big deal, but keep tons of wax on it and garaged. If you plan on selling there, you will lose about 5-7% value since its a non-GCC car. I've shipped many maybachs, bentleys, and high end benz's to the gulf. Enjoy the car, its a nice ride.

Bro, if u need anything done to the car just truck her over to Bahrain, we got a great dealership here who know their shit and even if they dont they look into it and then do it. Good luck with the car there.
