New M3 owner

Finally picked up my M3 on Wednesday! Got to the dealership right when one of the guys in the service department was going to fill it up so I made sure to see how he was going to leave the lot. When he got back I was able to snap some pics of the car with the white protection plastic still on it. Initially I was going to take care of the paperwork and just get the heck out of there but they actually wash cars by hand so I was ok having them detail it. Took about an hour and a half to prep the car. I even got to take the trunk section of the plastic off. After I got home I felt like a kid on Christmas morning and couldn't really sleep so there was only one thing I could think of doing. Driving of course! I ended up putting 100 miles on it and really got a chance to mess around with the iDrive, MDM, EDC, and power buttons. Really love the car and am looking forward to getting to 1200 miles so I can really see what the car is capable of.

Thanks. Yeah one of the first things I noticed were the tires. I know a lot of us have been getting different brands so I was pretty happy when I saw the Michelins.
