Upgraded! 2008 E90 to 2011.75 E90 M3!

Hey all just wanted to post some pics of my new E90. Here are her specs:

Alpine White
Fox Red/Black/Black
Carbon Leather Trim
6MT
Premium Package 2
Competition Package
Convenience Package
Moonroof
Heated Seats
Folding Seats
Enhanced Premium Sound
Satellite Radio
BMW Apps

Got out of my 08 E90 and ordered the 2011.75. Gotta say they defiantly made some improvements over the 2008. Besides the iDirve upgrades and Competition Package, the car feels more solid and maybe drives better. Might have to do with the fact that my 2008 was a "demo" with 3k on the clock when I got her vs. 6 miles on the odo on the 2011.75.

And now for the pics!


Truck Pulling in.






Always on top!



Coming down.


Just off the truck.


Only 6 Miles!


Quick Marina Photo Shoot.




My friends MW E93 and my new E90.


Mods done so far:

Black Grills and Gills
Painted Reflectors
Tints
15/12 Spacers
Vrederstein 255/275
Black Roundels
Lux Angel Eyes
MS Fliter and Scoops
Clutch Spring Removal
Alekshop Coding
Akrapovic Slip on

Mods to come:

Ess Tune
Alekshop Custom Valentine 1
Alekshop Custom Laser Jammer

That shot of the rear ends really accentuates how lame the stock exhaust looks.

Gives the clutch pedal better feedback and smoother movements IMHO.

Is the fender flare really that much wider on the e90 or is it just the camara angle and such?

However look how much lower the roof is (center of gravity) is for the coupe! Also much more sleek. Add to that
the carbon fiber roof that is lighter and sits much lower than the e90, I think the CF and e92 is a win! I know everyone argues about there being no difference but if you compared the same difference between the M and another brand, there is just no way you could deny this would make a difference. Look how much taller it is and has a steel roof.

The e92 needs the wider fenders though!

Tires

Are those Vredestein ultrac sessanta tires that I see? If so, how do you like them?

It's interesting that BMW would install those from the factory.

==== edit ====
disregard, just read that mods include new tires... What came from the factory?
