How many original owners here?

I am original owner of a Monte Carlo Blue E90 M3. Did European delivery AND performance center delivery.

Individual color
Black cloth interior
DCT
iPod upgrade
No iDrive
No moonroof

I daily drive mine. Still puts a smile on my face every time I drive it.

And I've been through 4 sets of underbody panels :

Agreed!!! Post it up.

Something I regret was not getting into an E90 for ED. I was late to the E90 game and bought my first one as a used car in 2011. Production had already halted so I missed out.

Nice how many miles on your MCB e90?

Was the OG on this 2013 but sold it in late 2016. Bought my current e92 in 2018 I'm the second owner on that one.

Original owner here as well. Have a 2011.75 E90 ZCP MT which was ordered in February 2011, built in June and delivered in September 2011. Despite not driving it much, love the car and plan on keeping it indefinitely.

Jealous of you Original owners! Well done for keeping them all this time.

What I wouldn’t give to go back to 2013 and order a fully loaded individual paint and leather competition

2013 E92 M3... European Delivery and Performance Center Delivery. Jerez Black, palladium silver interior. Pretty much all options ticked off.

Lowest mileage out of any of you folks I bet... just shy of 6900 miles.

Yeah, to be enjoyed on nice days only. They literally don't make them like that anymore, so hoping to get a lifetime out of it.

Daily drive the Tesla, which is definitely far more suitable for beater duty - lots of miles, plenty of creature comforts, among the fastest on the road with no real costs. But the biggest reward is getting into the E92 M3 after a week of driving a heavy beast and enjoying all the benefits of a light RWD car.

Funny that we're approaching the point where the "fat" M3 generation is considered light!

lol this is true... no question PHEVs and BEVs will make everything seem light. Also goes to show how much your perception can change with each car you buy. Every time I sit in an E46 or E9x, I remember why I loved them so much, and I forget about all the weird nitpick things I didn't like.

The Tesla is fully enjoyable as a daily and will win pretty much every stoplight launch, but is like the Escalade of compact sedans.
