One week after delivery:

Love the looks. Get compliments every time I stop at a gas station or a news stand. The hood bulge and the flares are very noticeable. White is the best color as it contrasts the CF roof and totally distinguishes it from a regualr 3 series.

Interior quality is top notch. Center console around gear shift is leather which is surprising. Door handles inside are leather-wrapped too, and not the cheap grainy leather Mercedes put in most S-classes or even SL55's. The seat-belt delivery arm is a nice touch, and so is the interior illumination and the exterior xenon's around the door andles that shoot downwards.

Stereo is the new DIRAC system. Great sound. HD radio is great too. SAT radio and Ipod completes the entertainment system.

Nav is awesome. I can completely enter a destination just by talking to it, saying the city, address, house number, etc. In fact, everything from Nav to phone to stsreo to climate is voice operated. Feels like Knight Rider.

Ride is phenomenal. It is the best riding car in this size I have ever driven, including any BMW, Mercedes and Porsche.

Engine is very responsive. Very noticeable difference when you put in 93 octane instead of 91, so it is important for us California people to mix 91 with 100 to get to 93. Great performance, and this is from someone who still owns a Stage 3 997TT.

I think it is a very good car for the money. I have a few friends who own $1M in cars and still ordered and are waiting for their M3's to arrive after driving mine.

Hope this is informative to you guys.:)

Love the car. I have been going into my garage and end up driving that car everytime. Its just more comfortable, quieter, and has tons of electronics to enjoy.
