your car looks gorgeous mate

she will be a nightmare too keep clean, have you hammered her yet? or are you going to run her in? i personally would not bother, if she had 3 odd miles on her or so when you picked up you can garuntee they would have been hard miles anyhow

have fun with your STUNNING car matey

Just didn't feel as involving as my E46 M3. Personally, I was unwilling to trade in my M3 against the RS4 on those first impressions ....

post more pics !!

monkey... given that you're one of only a very elite few with a new M3, you have an implicit duty to post as many pics of your new ride as possible... so the assed-out group (or as i like to call us ... the "americans") can live vicariously through you.

so how about it huh? snap some pictures for us.

Congrats!! You're one lucky guy; gotta be one of the first M3's.
Colors look great. Probably no way to really capture the intricacies of Jerez. I saw a Carbon Black 550 last week and it's really cool how it looks bluish in bright sun.

I'm leaving work early today to go work on it and I'm staying in London this weekend, so if not tonight, it will definitely be up there tomorrow. I need to go and throw the car around a bit to help me decide on a couple of things

Cool, can you snap some shots of the underbody and any other areas that haven't been photographed as much?
Perhaps a shot from the backseat, a shot in the trunk of the floor being lifted, the driver's side intake port, inside the center console/glove box, something to that effect.
Thanks!
