Finally saw the Sakhir Orange in person and everyone loved it. So it has been decided.

He can get his carbon driveshaft

Yeah the M3 is actually a good deal I think. I briefly considered keeping my old e70 and getting an m3 instead of spending all of the $ on the F15 50i.

1) I can't drive it in Europe with my family
2) They've made revisions since that build date
3) I like Yaz, but I prefer the Sakhir
4) For 67k, I rather pay 72 and get a brand new one. You never know what they did to it. A lot of flashing done nowadays that get undone prior to sale.
5) Perhaps most importantly, I don't really need a new car until Feb 2019 (eGolf lease ends). The 2018 M3 is already too soon - and that's with a late June pick up and (probably) August/Sept US delivery.

They've grown on me a lot, but I prefer the darker version of the wheels.
