The seats are awesome! The LOGIC7 sound is superb! At 60 Km/h in 6th gear there's enough torque to start pulling nicely from as low as 1500 rpm! The exhaust note is unbelievable! You can start her effortlessly in 2nd! The lights and all the other toys are great! The ride is...well...firm, but not bad considering she's a sports car! The ground clearance is a bit of a concern, but again, not too bad compared to some other high-performance cars!

She is... an E92 M3!

It's late and I'm tired, so more over the next few days, though I am going to be very, very busy for the next 15 days or so. I'll be picking her up in 3-4 days' time, and I'll try and take some new pics then!

The first owner of an M3, right here on Team-BHP! Congrats!

That is unbelievably awesome.

You may ignore this question - but I would like to know how much it cost you.

@ GTO: Hell, no...full running-in precautions for me and this baby!

As for the deal, I didn't really press them because it's the only E92 M3 in the country today and I was very keen to swap my 325i for it (the 325 had around the same # of Kms on it as this car has now, i.e. < 100 Kms). If I'd wasted too much time in plonking for it, someone else may have snapped it up and then I'd be stuck with the 325. Either way, I'm in luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuv!!!

Check out the pics on the Amby Valley BMW event thread under Indian Car Scene. More pics will take a while...

...and once again, thanks for sharing in my excitement, this forum is a great place for car nuts!

I was watching some blasphemous auto show on a Hindi news channel, with expert Tutu Dhawan, and they called the segment, BMW MP3 car.

Looks like they only care about ice-vice these days.

Mmm...I'd call it red, but not red like a Ferrari, so maybe it is orange-ish tan after all!
