G80 M3 6mt in Individual Chalk

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
In a completely unplanned series of events, I picked up a M3 6MT in individual chalk yesterday, off the lot. Apparently the person that ordered the car had to back out, and it was released the day before. I might have spec'd a more colorful interior, but it has full black leather and is very, very nice inside.

Below are a couple of photos, the color changes character quite a bit depending on sun/angle. I usually prefer the G80 in darker colors, but I thought this one looked amazing. I think if it had been one of the lighter "stock" colors, I would have passed.

Had just picked up my car from service at a different dealer and was running errands in this part of town. I knew they had an IOMG/full kyalami car on the lot, and I wanted to see the interior in person. I walk in and the car in sitting in the showroom.

"this is sold right?"

"nope, just released yesterday"

It went as expected from there. I even won the tire lottery (but lost the m seatbelt version).

It even had a car bow lol:

Very nice. I also bought my g80 at bmwsf on accident as it was just sitting on the lot. Had I seen this car, I would have bought it right there as well as I love that color om Porsches!

Enjoy fellow bay area g80 owner! I'm sure you got a nice discount too from picking up an inventory car.

Peter Pan of San Mateo is where I bought my 02 M2 from. And don't work about the M seat belts, you can swap those out later like I did. Chalk is a sick color man!
