Hope you don't mind me asking but did they make you a decent deal? And although this is M3 board I for one would like to get your feedback on the M5. Your perspective, as an E46 M3 "waiter", might be a little different than the usual 5 series buyer.
First, the deal was MSRP. I paid $73470. I'll never use the ski sack, the park distance control is something funny to show your friends, and the rear sunshade is a decadant option.
I didn't have a choice on the color combo, because it was the cancellation of someone else. It is beautiful. Titanium Silver exterior and Silverstone interior with the aluminum look finish. The car looks awesome.
Forget the looks, the drive is fantastic. Accelerates like no tomorrow, and is the smoothest thing I've ever been in. Was on the highway last night and went to pass someone, when I looked at the speed I was traveling the car was over 95. WOW.
I really wanted a new M3. But this ride made me change. All this comfort, all the goodies and it goes like a raped ape.
By the way, get the little spoiler, you want that little touch of difference. Someone who saw it said, "It looks like a 540 that has been on a steady diet of steroids.
