Individual E92 M3 Tanzanite Blue PCD

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So I finally got around to posting photos and some video of Performance Center Delivery experience and driving back to NY via stretches of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Abstract: Even with the stellar reviews of PCD on here I was still skeptical of how entertaining the driving portion would be...well I now understand why nobody has bad things to say. Within 15 minutes of walking through the doors we were in cars on the track. Sensory overload is the only way I can describe the first few hrs...walk through the doors my car is right up front and then bam right into driving...then delivery overview...then had some time to snap pics of it outside the Performance Center in the sun before lunch and afternoon off-road course and Zentrum. Had entertained skipping the museum and just checking it out later if I ever made it down for my factory tour rain check...glad I didn't it was very cool. The whole day exceeded my expectations.

Tanzanite Blue: I personally took a leap of faith on the color having never seen it prior to ordering it. The 650 photos at Geneva sold me but the 335 at the Welt looked quite a lot darker but still very sick...and after having the car for a couple weeks they're both spot on. The color has so many different shades/hues/flavors depending on the light that it still has me amazed. I wanted a more reserved, complex, and deep color that I wouldn't have to worry about pulling up to another one often (or ever) and BMW Individual delivered. I can definitely see why its a showcase Individual color on the M6/6-series.

Shout out to my bro MMM3PWR for making the trip with me and aiding with photos and video, we'll def be talking about it til we get time to head back for an M driving school. Couldn't have enjoyed the mountains in SC and NC more, unless of course I was past break-in.

Video is my first attempt at video montage-ing so disclaimer in advance...












































































HOME AND WASHED

Thanks all.

I have to give some credit to Checa at Steve Thomas for getting the order through.

Best thing about the long road trip...break-in service already complete

Beautiful. Like a Jerez on steroids! PCD really is awesome. I went with my dad a few years ago when he bought an E60 M5 and what an awesome experience. Did the teenage driving school while I was down there as well and that I highly recommend to any parent of new drivers.
