Received my M3 .... and it's good !!!

Finally I received my car yesterday.
It's better than expected, the car is simply amazing.
Some specs :
- Space Grey
- 19'' Wheels
- Extended leather Novillo Black
- EDC
- M Drive
- M Driver Package
- Navigation
....
Will try to post some pics soon.

By the way I confirm that even with the M Driver Package you have the standard tyres (Michelin Pilot)

The Cup tires are still Michelin Pilots.

Not a dealer car, I spec'd it on May. Seems I'm the first delivered in the French Part of Switzerland.

Congrats on your car! Your's seem to be the first customer car!

Thanks also for the clarification referring to the tires. Seems like the information that Cup tires are part of the Drivers Package was totally wrong. A quite reliable source indicated that though!

Best regards, south

Which means the car was prepped in an "unfair" (meaning not factory) condition for the Nurburgring 8:03 lap time.

Right, but did that happen to compete with an unfair prepped R8? Yes!

Not necessarily. The tires may not be included in the Swiss M Driver package, but perhaps in the package for the German market?

it is annoying to get loads of different answers to the tyre topic within 3 weeks...
at the frankfurt motor show bmw confirmed to me that all 19" in germany will be fitted with pilot sport cup+ tyres
the weekend after i met the head of tyre development of m-gmbh at the ring...he was saying the same...

now we see the first 19" cars been delivered in germany and they all come with normal ps2

looks like bmw in the end feared the autumm time of year to deliver trickier to handle tyres on cars that have to be used in normal life...

so again sorry for having posted info which in the end turned out to be wrong...we still have to "believe" what m-officials are telling us...
