M3 SS/SO - Euro Delivery July 6th

Reporting from the Welt - took delivery of M3 Monday morning, and we drove to Prague after collecting luggage and staff from friend's apartment. The car is fabulous and deceptively quick. Lots of torque in any gear, exhaust note is distinct and draws attention. Suspension is firm but compliant, at least on good roads I drove today. To comply with the proper ED break in procedure, I'm staying in Europe for 4 weeks.

Few pics from iPhone:

Very nice! Jealous of the 4 week trip, should be an absolute blast. Enjoy Prague! We had an awesome trip there on our last ED, such a cool city.

Excellent exterior color. Black is too hot for Arizona and requires excessive washing everywhere.

4 weeks makes me want to get a government job or other job that allows this.

We're staying in Prague until Thursday, with the car parked in hotel's garage. Hot day today, 35 C. It's been hot in most of Europe for last few days, with record breaking temps.Click image for larger version

I saw you get delivered! I came in a day early and swung by there and saw two beautiful SS right on the same floor... A 3 and a 4.

Congrats. I got mine today....

M3 SS/SO - Euro Delivery July 6th

We made it to Kraków yesterday. Weather has improved across Central Europe, with temp in lower/mid 20's C. What a relief from mid 30's C few days earlier.
Staying in Kraków for a few days; attending a wedding on the weekend, planning some day trips on the bike. Kraków has nice boulevards along the Wisa river, worth exploring on foot or bike. The pics are from the Rynek square in Old Town.

You are from AZ and complaining about 35C, it will be 45C today!! I'd take 35C over that.

Yeah, but it's dry heat.. Most homes in Germany don't have AC, and there is not much relief at night.

Hey, thanks, glad Marrimonti worked out for you. I was in Dolomites in March, spent a night there. On his trip we're going to hug the Danube, and do some exploring on bikes. Here is my other ride on this trip.Click image for larger version
