Car arrives at the dealership this Saturday. That is exactly 5 weeks from drop-off. Not bad at all. Very excited.

Not excited at the cost to insure the M3.

No idea. They typically are.

But for reference, with similar coverage:

2011 Miata: $900
2013 LR4: $1100
2015 eGolf: $1450 ( but going away in January)
2018 M3: $2300

I'd like to think that, but the LR4 was somewhat close in price to the M3 and it was never more than $1200 or so.

Yikes, that's a lot. I was browsing CPO F80s tonight and didn't even consider the insurance angle.

Despite the completely insane repair costs on my last model S, insurance has largely been in line with what I was paying on my 2008 535.

I know, I know. That's my color too.
