Compliance - His and Hers Dual M3 Delivery

Just a quick compliance post. Full story later. My wife and I both picked up F80 M3s today. The Welt was very accommodating and arranged for our deliveries to be moved together at the same time by a single delivery agent. They also took joint photos of our delivery but I do not have a way to get the higher quality official photos off the thumb drive so these are Fromm iPhone.

Best part of the day was the guy taking selfies with my Yas Marina Blue M3 (see pic).

And yes those are Car and Driver Save the Manuals shirts. We are such nerds... Maybe they'll stick our picture in the back of their magazine?

Very nicely done. From my experience three years ago, Driving an M3 in Europe is somewhat akin to dating a supermodel in terms of the attention you and your ride attract. So I can only imagine what it's going to be like with both you and your wife pulling up to hotels, restaurants, fuel stops and even roundabouts. We are going to hear more about this trip, aren't we?

Interior for you:

Both have the carbon trim and extended leather (not full dash). The Sonoma Biege looks very classy in my wife's car.

Full story with a ton of pics coming when we get back later this week...I promise. We are at the Nurburgring for the next 3 days and my wife is already about to kill me for using my phone and uploading/posting.

Congrats - awesome delivery! I gotta ask though - why two M3's instead of an M3 and an M4 perhaps?

I get that question a lot. Honestly, the wife had to have a sedan regardless. For me, the M3 looks better than the M3. The proportions seem better and the fenders look more aggressive. Also, coming from my E39 M5, having a sedan (rare for me) was a nice convenience that I wanted again.

My wife wanted a fast 4 door luxury sedan with a manual (believe it or not there are few options in 2014 for this sort of car and most dealers aren't even putting manuals on their lots). The 335i would have done the trick but there were some things she didn't like about it. She liked the Sonoma Biege interior in the M3 better because the dash remained all black...weird...I know. But she grew to like the car better overall. Not to mention there were a lot of standard features on the M3 that would've made an equivalent 335i pretty expensive. I also drive her car everywhere we go together (trips and such) and I wanted to like it too. But the more we started considering the idea, the more I wanted my own. I had also just spun a rod bearing in my E39 M5 for which I had an ESS supercharger awaiting install. I ended up justifying my own M3 purchase because I wanted a warranty after all that and the M3 is very similar in size to the E39 along with the forced induction. The more I read, the more I discovered how special this new M3 is and talked myself into it. The dual ED sounded like a once in a lifetime opportunity so we ended up running the numbers and deciding to do it. We don't have kids so why not...

I get the convenience of 4 doors but aggressive fenders over the sleekness not so much. Fortunately we all get to make our choices.

Bottom line, I just think the M3 has the look I like better and was cheaper as well with practically no downsides (the weight gain is negligible). Definitely a very personal choice though. Can't go wrong with either car though.
