Re-delivery complete of my Estoril Blue M Sport

Exactly 6 weeks to the day, I received my baby back. This was the hardest part of the European Delivery. Planning for the trip was a lot easier than the wait for it to come home.

Got some new parts added to the car once it entered the US port.

Performance Brakes
Black Grill
Carbon mirrors
M Performance Exhaust

Looks nice. How do you like the performance exhaust? I'm interested in putting it on my car, but I'd have to hear it in person first and I'm not sure when that will happen.

Please, it's BRAKES! You break something when your brakes fail! Doesn't anyone know how to spell brakes anymore! It this just the damn auto-correct on people's phones?

Can you tell that this trend is driving me freaking crazy?!

Oh yeah, congrats! Estoril Blue II is one of my favorites!

HA HA...OMG...I can't believe I wrote "Breaks" for "Brakes". Guess I was typing too fast and didn't take the time to re-read what I wrote. I made the edit to my post.

Regarding the exhaust...I don't notice a HUGE difference between stock and Performance exhaust. To be honest, it's been 6 weeks since driving with the stock exhaust and I can't remember to sound (or lack there of).

At the end of the day, these are 6 cylinder cars and will never sound great like an 8 cylinder car (no matter what "street legal" exhaust you put on). I previously owned a C63 AMG and that car sounded AMAZING! But I'll see if I can post a video of the exhaust.

Guess I need to edit my signature image now that I have my baby home.
