When you do PDC, don't you take your car on their track? It would be difficult to keep within these parameters if so.
One you order. I haven't been since March(we do business functions at the PC occasionally) but I've heard All the M3s now are '12 Competition coupes(they used to use the sedans a lot, almost exclusively for PC cars). Also everything on site is a MDCT or automatic (135, 335, 550, etc...) so I'll have a DCT in whatever coupe I get vs the 6sp I ordered. I won't get to drive my car until after lunch when we go across the street for the factory and museum tour... And then home (which for me is 1.5hrs) up I-85. Ill have to see what the break-in requirements are now but expecting the same 1200 mi term with no driving over 100 mph or 5500rpms until the fluids are changed. I'll be doing lots of trips lol... Need to get that first service done pronto
