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.
I would have taken it also for MSRP. Worst case scenario would be even if you didn't like it... drive it until the new M3 comes out. With this crazy market you could still get most, if not all, your money back out of it.
The car sounds awesome! Good luck and keep posting!
My feeling exactly.
