Default Just ordered a new Imola Red on Imola Red Competition Package

I actually ordered it a few weeks back but just found this forum. I was told that it will start being built next week in Germany and will arrive around the end of July. Can't wait. I currently own a Audi A4 Ultrasport Avant. I'll use the A4 as the daily driver. Anyways, this will be my first BMW. Anyone here have a Red on Red M3? I'm curious to see some pictures of them. Also,, anyone here have any comments on the competition package? Thanks!!!!

Default Ordered the same

Ordered the same as you a few weeks ago. Competition package, Imola red, red interior. First BMW as well... trading in 2004 Mazda RX8.

I'm anxious to see the same pictures as well.

Congrats to both of you!

Here's a bunch of Imola ZCP pictures from my just completed Euro Delivery

e36m3r - one more question for ya... I ordered the car (put down my deposit) on May 6th. My sales person said the car should arrive here in Portland, Oregon towards the end of July. She said it won't start being built until the 1st of June. Assuming it's going to start being built in Germany this week, from your experience, it sounds like I won't have the car until well after the end of July. If I read correctly, it took them around 8 weeks to build it and then another 8 weeks to have it shipped... Actual delivery would then happen towards the end of September.

Thanks very much. I think your salesperson has it correct. It takes about a week for the car to be built and then 6-8 weeks to get here, so you should count on end July or early August.

My car was held in Munich after being built, so I could go there and drive it (Euro Delivery), thus the extra six or eight weeks from order to possession here in the states.

portlandm3,

Welcome, I too am a n00b with my first M3. I just picked up an Imola/Imola 2001 last month and I just love the color combo. The red is just so striking. I like how it seems so dark almost Ox Blood at night and on a sunny day it gets really bright and seems more like a Ferrari Red. What options did you get?

e36M3r,

You should get kick backs from BMWUSA on those pictures. I think anyone who sees those would want to do the Euro delivery. It just looks like such a good time.

Cheers,

Bill
