My First BMW. 2018 Avus Blue ZCP M3

And certainly will not be my last. I traded in my Lexus RC-F for this M and loving it so far. But the break in period of 1200 Miles is excruciating! Here she is.

Congrats on the M3. What made you go from a V8 coupe to a four door M3.

I'm usually not a fan of dark blues, think they're boring but Avus pops for some reason. There's an Avus F80 that's sitting outside at the local dealer next to a Mint Green and a Mandarin 440 GC (lol why) and my eyes were immediately drawn to the Avus.

I think the trick with Avus Blue is to keep it clean and shiny and it will pop like you said. Any blue when dirty is meh!

Congrats! I was checking those out at Motorwerks before I bought mine at Minnetonka. Hopefully I'll see you driving around and I can check out that color in person again.

Hey Minn19, thank you! I wanted to buy from Minnetonka but they don't have M3 options I was looking for. I live in the Plymouth area and mainly hangout and drive around there. Are you a member of MNBMW? I just recently joined their FB page.

Funny, it was the same reason I got mine at 'Tonka, plus I always get much better deals there than Motorwerks.

I'm not on FB so no on the MNBMW. I've seen their stickers on BMWs everywhere though! I'm mainly north of the cities, but maybe we'll cross paths someday.
