Question THE WAIT WAS WORTH IT!!!! Individual Atlantis Metallic G80 M3 Competition xDrive

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
FINALLY after a 7+ month wait…. The first car I have built to my spec has arrived!

This saga began years ago with my first ///M car a Z3MR… skip fwd to 2020 I sold my E46 M3 ZCP (an ‘05 with 46K miles… worth a lot more now ) and bought a 2018 Tanzanite Blue/Silverstone F80 Comp pckg 6 spd manual with 2K miles. Due to COVID (and living in a cold weather state where I store my rwd cars over winter) I hardly put on miles on that car driving ~3K miles in the span of 16 months.

During ownership I found out that the 2022 M3 was going to be available in AWD which was exciting but a couple things held me back…. 1) The front end and 2) the lack of a manual (in the awd model). I started thinking about it more and more as reviews of the G8X came out which were generally very positive…. And then I finally saw a G80 and G82 in person (getting an oil change on my F80) and was shocked to find myself thinking the car actually looked good in person.

After some more thinking, I decided to go all in on the car and decided to trade in my F80 in August. I ordered a G80 Competition xDrive in my dream color Atlantis Metallic over Tartufo. I didn’t think it would take over 7 months but I can say…

IT WAS WELL WORTH THE WAIT!!! Favorite car I’ve owned so far (I’m 20+ deep)! The car lived up to all the hype and I’m at about 300 miles…. Absolute beast, steering is excellent and all with AWD making this a year round car for me! I don’t think there is another AWD car that can package the power, fun to drive factor and practicality (2 kids < 4 yrs old) as well as this one!!

Before I picked up the car, my CA had texted me several pictures saying the color is truly special…. And to get it the hell out of there because it was distracting everyone that walked by it (prospective clients). You can see in the 4th pic someone else is taking a pic while my CA is taking one to send to me.

The color is stunning, and very hard to capture, it’s a very deep teal in person, and just friggin awesome.

Hope you guys enjoy the pics… many more to come!

You can get a sense for the combination here… you’ll have to ignore the rears seats. First thing was covering those to protect them from the 2 car seats that stay in the car
