Great car and best photos period. The order choices are daunting and that is not to mention you first have to pick a model. Thank you for a great thread.

Love the interior. Thank you for really great photos. 6 sp manual vs 8AT is ever harder to make so I have to ask if you regret lack of clutch?

Congratulations on a really special car.

Virginia Route 58 this past Sunday. Very nice red F30

My first sighting of an F30 outside of a dealership. Melbourne red and showroom perfect much better than imagined. Of course I had to think it must be someone on this board.
