Atlantis Blue PCD Delivery!

August 26th. Can't wait!

Car appears to be the right spec, inside and out, but wont know 'til I see it.

On compensation from BMW, we shall see, but we are hoping for airfare reimbursement, M-perf exhaust, and a tour (ona future date) of the M-facility in Germany.

Congrats, man! I know we've all been waiting to see a good resolution on this for you.

And, just for good measure:



(On August 26th, when you actually get a chance to take some.)

Happy to hear it worked out!

A lot of us were wondering what the outcome was

Yes! Sounds like BMW stepped up and did the right thing. Just wonder what BMW did with the "camry" blue M3?

Do you plan on keeping the E46 M3? Just wondering, is it an SMG or MT model?

Manual tranny.

On keeping it...TBD.... I'm moving to a new house and it's going to be another 8-months-ish before I have my detached garage finished. Until then.... only 2-car parking!

I REALLY love my E46 though. It's been the best car I've ever owned.

Congrats glad everything got resolved. I may have to swing by on your delivery day or a couple days before to take a look at it.

But I wonder if you'll be able to say that same phrase in a few weeks.

What I will miss the most are my CSL seats. They really make the car for me. I'm not sold on the Performance Seats, but that seems to be the only OE-like option.

If BMW had a sense of humor, they would roll out another Atlantic Blue M3, attempt to turn it over to you, only for Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew to come running out and tell you've been Welt'd.

PCD....so not europe right? Isn't that Spartanburg?

It'd almost be worth shipping the first one over to present to you just to see your reaction. I bet that Atlantic blue one was relegated to corporate demo/thrash car service. That or it was sold to a EU dealer and shortly thereafter red tagged at a severe markdown.
