Special thanks to Jon, Franco and Manny!

Want to thank the crew at Cutter Motors (Jon, Franco and Manny) for making the new car buying experience so painless. Back in August I placed a deposit an a 2003 325Ci...in Sterling Gray Metallic.

Whaaa...Sterling Gray isn't a standard 3-series color you say?!? No problem! Just leave it to Jon and Franco to handle all the special order details.

The four month wait ended today when I stopped by Cutter for the first time to pick the car up. The car was perfect...fully detailed, on the showroom floor with a big 'ol bow on the hood.

The drive back to San Diego was a blast. Oh yea, can't wait to install the M-Steering Wheel that Manny hooked me up with tomorrow...

The crew at Cutter is awesome!

Thank You Mauricio for the opportunity to serve you!

Thank you on behalf of everyone here at Cutter Motors...

You know, I must say that yours and Carlos' cars are
two of the coolest E46s that we have ever delivered.

BMWNA should take your cue in terms of color offerings
for the 3 Series!!

Here they are again - the special order twins:

Thanks for making it sooo easy to do business with you. With all the work that Carlos put me through! (just kidding Mr C )

Lunch was great, your cars looked great, and the whole thing went smoothly. Don't forget about bimmerfest this spring!

Thanks for your support.

What color interior did you choose? I am thinking about switching my 530 order from titanium silver to sterling grey, but the website only allows black leather with that exterior.

Ordered the car with the basics: Bi-Xenons, sport pack, moonroof and black leatherette. The M-Steering Wheel was installed yesterday along with Titanium Trim (off an M3).
