Big Thanks to Greg Poland @ Pacific BMW. The man comes through again on a great no hassle deal. Definitely a great addition to my F10 M5 as part of my daily drivers.

here's some crappy phone pics.

Congrats. Looks like you might need some extensions to reach the pedals.

PS was going to come in and test that one last week I think, was it dealer inventory? I want to try an AH3 and it showed in stock...

Congrats, post some feedback after you get some miles on it.

Great looking car! You had it delivered with an 11-99 foundation plate frame?

Just in case you don't know this, having one of those plates makes it more likely that you will be ticketed if you are pulled over and aren't a member because CHP knows that people buy the plates to avoid tickets. I've even heard from officers that they are more likely to pull a person over because they may be trying to hide something.

Congrats, I like my AH3 if not for the novelty factor over real "hybrid" mpg. I'm getting about 32.3 mpg overall.

PS - if you don't mind me asking, does "SANguru" have anything to do with Storage Area Networks, as in you know a lot about that?

Those AH3 badges are a bit much especially the ones on the rear pillar.

How did you pick from VPC? Last I heard that was not even an option. You can take delivery either at the dealer or PC.

Welcome to the Bay Area M-Sport AH3 club! I think I've only see you and one other guy on the forums with the same combo.

Haha awesome. That makes 4 of us. Surprising how many people haven't heard of the AH3. Such an amazing car.
