Thank you.

The V3 is a PITA to install... it took me a little while to finally get the hang of it.

First it is semi-important to make sure you have the right grooves lined up. From there its just a matter of mashing your hand down into the light box and turning as best as you can. Took my probably 30 minutes to do the first one, and 10 to do the second one.

I also have cuts and scrapes all on my hand and knuckles. Oh well.. it was worth it.

Thank you. This is my first M3 and my 2nd BMW. My 335XI with M-Sport was fun but this is a whole different animal. WAY more fun to drive. Very responsive.

Thank you! Yeah 6MT for me is the only choice. While i understand the benefits of DCT, IMO it just takes away from the driving experience. Besides, i didnt buy this car to race and do track events where every second counts. I purchased it as a DD with some spirited driving in between.

Thank you! Vert must be amazing in the summer. I really have no need for headphones as i am always in my car or in my office but it does sound cool.

I am local southern CT guy with an IB ZCP coming into port this week (2/28) and your pictures convinced me 100% that IB is the perfect color. Now just praying that customs doesn't take forever.

Congrats and enjoy
