Monte Carlo Blue E90 - ED to PCD now at home!

Whew! What a journey! Started off on Jun 13. Drove my 04 330Ci to Miami for some work...something goes wrong with the car.

Then I get on the plane to fly to Munich. I focking puke on the plane before while we were taxi'ing...to TAKE OFF! I think I had a bad Sam Adams before I boarded. First time ever and I was shocked considering some of the hellish military flights I've been on. Including one on a C-130 that was like a 4hour long roller coaster ride.

So I get to Munich...



There it is! Up close and personal...



On top of the Grossglockner in Austria...



On top of the Stelvio Pass...



At the Nurburgring...



I fly back and guess what? These two nice older ladies were like, "Weren't you the guy who threw up on the plane a week ago?". Never a dull day.

...then an 42 day wait and a flight from TX to SC...

After an awesome romp around the PCD track...here it is in front of the Zentrum.







No, my son is NOT wearing a helmet...that's his regular haircut



Caught a glimpse of this...



Just got home. She's safe and sound in the garage! Too tired to take a pic right now.

BTW...specs:

2011 E90
Monte Carlo Blue/Speed Cloth/Titanium Shadow Trim
M-DCT
iPod

...that's it!

Mods on hand:
Vorsteiner rear diffuser (hopefully its the right one)
AA X-Pipe (if Viral ever ships it!)
OEM Black grills (front and side)
APEX ARC-8s (need tires)
Performance Steering Wheel (non-electric)
Dinan Stage 1 suspension
Dinan rear toe link

BIGJAE, congrats. That is one awesome experience
at your sons comment: not a helmet but a haircut. Reminds of how my nephew's hair was when he was your son's age: same exact haircut.
I am surprised old ladies with good memory. Most of them forget where they placed their dentures.

Congrats!! I'm pretty sure I saw your car sitting there when I was at the performance center a week ago. With the MCB and the fact that owning an E92 I 'forgot' they made 4 door M3's I thought it was the new M5.

Beautiful color. I really like the "spareness" of your options list too.

Enjoy!

Proportions of the E90 are better than E92 IMO. That color is stunning on the 18s. Congrats!

Thanks...when I got there it was in front of the front door...across from an MCB X5M.

Interesting, the guy that bought my 335i from Czech sent me these photos:

Looks like he took the photos at around the same location......

Thanks! BTW, I like your garage list.

I saw that you did the Editiion front/side grills and an exhaust. Have you done any other mods?

I figured you were in Iraq...see you when you get home. Just got back to Hood. Definitely not going very far with this car but I will have some painted reflectors lined up soon.
