M3POST member koop shares with us his journal from his BMW Individual M3 re-delivery at the PCD. From koop:

As some of you may remember, I was fortunate enough to take European Delivery of my Individual Azurite/Rust Brown E92 M3 in Munich last December. It was an awesome experience! (The original thread is here).

After a forever-taking 10-week wait, my M3 and I were finally reunited at the Performance Center in South Carolina last week. The experience was just as fantastic as Munich, but in an entirely different way. We were treated like VIPs from the moment we arrived at the airport until we drove off in our new M.

Spotted by M3POST member M3 Piotr:

These two were special ordered by Pentagon Car Sales (US Military Sales in Germany). They come with Individual Frozen Paint, as well as the extended leather with body color stitching, all OEM shadowline trim (front grills, hood scoops, side gills, exhaust tips,) and OEM black GTS wheels. Additionally, the owner of Pentagon Car Sales David Baker went step further and “modded” these a little bit before they go out for sale. He added Akrapovic slip on with Carbon Black tips, and some goodies from IND. Some of you might jump to a conclusion that he … CONTINUED

To this, Nitschke reaffirms M’s stance on RWD: “Our philosophy in regards to steering feel and precision is that rear-wheel drive is the best solution,” … “xDrive brings an 80-90kg weight penalty and the M differential is the industry’s best rear-drive … CONTINUED
