Manual was the first to be offered in India, DCT came only afterwards(in a few weeks, or a months time). So, does that mean you own the M3 abroad ? Btw, can you please explain what is the 'AW'.

@Ecks :
What happened to your signature brother? You have been awfully quiet for sometime. No pics neither videos. Are you removing everything from your garage and replacing it with all new toys?

Awwww...
Thats a very very bad news you have sent across brother.
Looks like you are too engrossed with your beauties now and do not want to share them with us anymore.
Ok, as you please, have fun!

Unless you are a moderator of this site , lets not get into that. I'll post if and when I can about the collection.

Karan,

That isn't good news dude! Care to explain to us as to what happened? We'd like to know! Plus, I think Akshay is right. It's best to close this thread temporarily and you can contact the moderators once you're ready to discuss and share pictures of your collection.

didnt mean to offend you. just my opinion. instead of having lots of posts asking for updates and speculation etc, IMO easier just to lock it until your circumstances allow you to post about your rides.

of course in the end its your choice.

oh man! just when i thought you'd post some high-res DBS pics now, this happened. I was actually wondering for the last few days why your signature is gone and no new updates on this thread. Now i can only hope that this thread gets a new life soon.

Ya, I own an M3 here in the US. I got it as soon as it was launched. I want to get the M3 in India as well after I'm done studying here. So, I'm relieved to hear that manual is available.
Do you know what the on road price is fully loaded with options and manual transmission?

Right ,so here I am , back again. Before I post anything , I have a humble request to make to whoever visits my thread. Please post whatever is relevant to the collection. Things like driving experience and options/mods on the car are perfectly fine. But speculating the price or what car will be next or what I should and should not buy , ticks me off, because it is a personal matter and not up for public discussion.

I took a break from all that and I wanted to clear a few things before I started sharing again , because there are several pleasant and good natured people here who genuinely appreciate someone's machines. This is for all of them and I hope we can stick to the reason we all came to this bhp family , to share our experiences with an earnest intention.

And yes, the R35 GTR is making an entry to our garage (finally !) . It should be arriving by the end of April or early May . It is the same black car I had originally thought of not buying , and it won't have the matte black wrap , rather just a clear paint protection film.
