Damn, i thought it was black since the 1st batch of pix were in the night and thought it was just black from the starting.
My bad.

Also hope the exhaust and the related stuff is going in after you run in .
So that you can find the true difference after the mods.

Oh yeah yeah , the break in period ends at about 1500 kms. After that I'll get the mods done.

And another amazing fact about the M3 is that it is not at all an attention grabber (speaking both in relation to the LP and individually) . I just drove around town and not one person followed the M and/or looked twice. Now THAT is a blessing for people who do not wish to get too much attention. I even parked it in my office parking (with our security people close by) and when I came back down stairs , there it was, not a single person around it. Aah , heaven this is.

The M3 is a lovely ride! Certainly meant to be adored.

Deos the M only come in white, or are there other color options?

Amazing M3 Karan! Congrats.

You have an amazing garage there which most of us dream of. I hope your enjoying the most of the M3 but dont forget to keep the orange lady happy.

She might just get bored sitting there in your parking lot!!

Lol.
Sad crowd.
Though even i would not like much attention but yes atleast some. The m3 is surely a killer car and its a sight none the less.

Maybe they are not aware of the difference like you can see in a covertible 6.

the car really looks brutal, and the first 1500 kms are gonna feel like they are going to last forever
Could I ask you for a pic of specifically the carbon roof and paddle shifters?

Nice pics Karan. Thats what you call a garage.

Was just wondering how and where do you get the LP serviced? Cos, the M3 can be sent to the nearest (and competent) BMW service center while the options for the LP are very limited.

I am assuming that parts (which need to be replaced at every service interval) are ordered online but who does the actual servicing? Do you fly a team down to CG or are there competent mechanics around?

I hope my queries are not intrusive in any way.

Drive safe.

Can't wait for the Hamann cats man, I'm actually a little excited for someone else's car! Haha It would most definitely be right up there in the loudest car in India category.

And yes, the M3 is pure understated indulgence. I saw one last August in a Mumbai investment bank where I interned, and not a soul paid attention to it, besides me of course. It was in a rare sky blue, running on 18s with the CF roof. Nice combo and I don't think I've seen it pictured here on TBhp.

Anyhoo, enjoy. Btw, I may be joining the BMW family by purchasing a 5/6, but it's still unconfirmed!

Yeah , it has a little more ground clearance . Makes it easier for me to drive it normally and not look over the bumper for road conditions .

Yes , it makes 414 hp and is naturally aspirated. No , I did not consider the convertible . I am thorough coupe guy.

Not intrusive at all. All servicing is done by the service department maintained by Exclusive Motor's at Delhi. They are the official dealers of lamborghini in India and take care of any issues associated with the cars. They have a tie - up with Patel auto's , where the service guys are trained by Lamborghini mechanics from Italy from time to time . So , yes , in a way , the servicing of the LP is limited , for me , to Delhi only which poses logistical problems.

+1 to the m3 being not an attention grabber , people in delhi too don't notice it much well unless and untill you realize you in a M and start enjoying it but in a car park it you don't end up with people standing over it.
