Original Post from 9-5-2012:
Yup... I didn't think I'd be this excited, but I am.

Alpine White over Coral Red, brushed Aluminum w/ black gloss
18" 397's
2TB Sport Auto (wife will be primary driver)
Heated seats, no ZCW
609 Nav, no ZTP
6WA Extended Cluster

Should go in week 39... with a bit of luck I'll have it before Thanksgiving.

The hardest part was deciding on tires... I had it in my head that I'd get the summer rubber since I have a set of winters that *should* fit the F30... but I talked myself out of it and will stick with the all-seasons. I have a couple weeks to make changes, so I suppose I can change my mind.

Excited me is excited.
