I feel for ya man. That's a brutal wait that I just can't do. I'm sure it'll all be worth it in the end though.

The only thing that bothers me about this car is why didn't BMW use LED tail lights? Are they going to come out with ita year or two later like they did with the first E92? Then it'll force me to upgrade my tails if they do.

It's much lighter than dark graphite but still a dark color different hue all together. Personally I like it better when it's not in direct light. It is however very metallic in the bright sun.

I would have got mg but I have it already and want a change. The only drawback for me is that there are a lot of mg 3 series around my area. If you want to be stealthy this is a great color.

Man, you just can't keep chasing your tail when it comes to cars. Wait for the LCI, wait for the new model, wait for the new model LCI, wait........well you get the idea.

Just be happy with the one you got and mod the shit out of it. We actually are doing an ED with ours and pick-up on 9/17. The wait will be brutal to get it back home, but we've been there before.

I've been shopping around and even went down to socal to Sterling BMW in Newport Beach to look at a black one they had. They had a "Market Adjustment" of $10K and no one even came out to ask me if I needed help. Sort of glad they didn't because I would have just laughed at them. I was glad to see that Niello wasn't marking it up anymore. It was a good enough deal for me at $76150. I'm not really one to haggle on a new model year that's in limited supply.

Nice job. I knew Niello was doing MSRP, thought you might of had a little wiggle room. Enjoy it, I know I will.

[F80] Official MINERAL GREY F80 M3 Sedan Thread

I know it may seem weird but does anyone else spend most of their time in the garage just staring at their M3? I'm always looking at it from the side and admiring how deep the wheels are. I will even occasionally lay underneath the car checking everything out and admiring the build quality. The other day I was trying to get a glimpse of the drive-shaft but no luck. Yeah, I know I've got issues. The garage is where I go to get away from it all.












Best for last.

Savaho, your car looks great! So I think I've decided to get an M3 instead of a Macan Turbo (yes, I was cross-shopping the two). Can't live without the clutch pedal and the 4-years maintenance make the M3 a much cheaper buy. Anyway, MG looks like the killer color. What do you all think about that with the black 19" wheels and Sakhir interior? I think the wheels will look good (esp. with a black grille) but I'm not sure about the exterior/interior color combo. I'm not ordering until December so I'm sure I'll see some pics before then but for now, just feeding the dream.

Black wheels should look fine. Here's a pic of another member's MG with black wheels. Not sure about the SO interior and grey exterior but if you think it'll look good then get it.

Hello fellow MG M3 owners! I picked up my M a few days ago and all I can say is WOW! This color looks AMAZING on the M3; especially if you have the 19' black alloy rims and CF roof. I'll post some pictures soon.

Hey guys. Here are some pictures of my M3. There not the best pictures but they will do for now. She is pretty much bone stock....for now I have some big plans for this car and can't wait to start modding.

Tint: 5% all around, 70% windshield

The MG needs the semi-black 19" wheels to really bring out it's look.
Add SO interior on a Vert and it's heaven
