Nardo Gray F80 M3 - ED experience and Pics

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I picked up my Nardo Grey M3 ZCP on 12th Oct.

A lot has been written about this whole experience so I won't bore you all. Pics speak a thousand words anyway.

Other than Munich, I visited Stuttgart, Nurburgring and the Netherlands which is where I ultimately dropped off my car.

The M3 surpassed my expectations in terms of drive quality, speed and feel. Coming from a '14 E63 AMGs I was worried that I was going to feel a big power deficit especially with the tractability of the E because of the AWD. I however did not. Again I did not red line it due to break in and the moments when I came close I did feel the car wiggle a little, which I have never felt on my current car.

I was surprised at the noise of the engine and exhaust inside the car, and LOVED the burbles and barks in low RPM. My E63 has a straight pipe so it is 20% louder than stock. The M3 ZCP seemed louder than this.

My experience on the ring was a little subdued due to me trying to keep the RPM's down, I still managed a rough 11.30 sec time my first and only time around. I decided I didn't want to kill the car so didn't do any more laps.

Overall the control, the drive feel, the speed (even though I didn't even push the car too hard) reminded me why I always come back to M cars.

Now the hard part, waiting for it to come in..Probably looking at Mid Dec to come to Dallas from Amsterdam..
Enjoy the pics..

Congrats. I love the Nardo Grey. I don't know how you guys follow these break in "guidelines" The wife and I always blast out of the Welt and hit the limiter on the Autobahn immediately. Never had an issue.

Congratulations! Wonderful pictures and nice color combination.

I was just lamenting the lack of recent ED write-ups...I was getting with withdrawal! Thanks for posting.

And that is how you do a competition package right. Just repaint the blue calipers to Imola Red or SO and its perfect!!!

Nice! Good color combo. I also love how the cut-outs in the seats are stitched in black leather.
