My new Space Gray M3!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got it about two weeks ago, its just amazing, it really feels fast, not e46 m3 fast but faster, I drove my e46 m3 for 6 years as my daily driver and this one is scary at times, Its the first one in Central America, I hope you like the pics, (I know the hood was not properly closed)

Very nice.
Got tint already? Dealership didn't do it, did they?
How do you like the Individual sound?

I had the tint done here, the stereo sounds amazing, theres no sound distortion no matter how loud it is, it sounds great, it has an equalizer which I cant use, someone know the perfect settings for every type of music?

Well in regards to my e46 m3 this one brakes so much better, I don't know why everyone is making such a fuss about brembo and bmw, M division has done a great job, it really brakes hard, the steering is different, not bad different, just different, I keep looking down waiting for the traction light to turn on but it rarely does, it handles a lot better, I can't tell the difference between the 3 settings in EDC, as for POWER it feels much more than the old SPORT button, and the traction control, M dynamic mode is a lot of fun, you can actually play around with the car without loosing control. 1st and 2nd gear feel almost the same as the e46, but in third the car becomes a monster , and the V8 sound is just awesome, not american V8, its a refined german V8 that growls, I love it.

It's great to hear someone with an E46 M3 who really rates the new one as much better. The dealer setup the M dynamic for me to experience on the test drive and I must say it was one of three things which sold me on the car. The other two were the engine note, especially as you approach the 7000rpm plus mark and the EDC which on my roads made all the difference.

I love the colour and would be very interested to hear your full opinion on the Individual sound system.

It should look more or less like a smiley face, with the middle dipping below the middle marker and the sides extending above it, does wonders for the sound of your music.

Did you get the Logic system or the upgraded Hi-Fi one (whatever its called)?

P.S. That ride is gorgeous, I'm so jealous!
