It was like I was in a GIANT M3 candy store.

Great to meet some of you and attach a face to the handles. I too would have liked to meet more of you, but I'm sure there will be other meets this year.

Looking forward to the exhaust videos but glad I got to hear them in person!

Maybe we can get one of the Greater GTA dealerships to sponsor a future event? There were over BMWs there today, the majority of which were E9X M3s, with other M cars... That is a lot of $$$. Hmm... I wonder what would happen if they also offered some special pricing on M Performance exhaust, parts, competition wheels, etc... Hello, any dealers reading this??

EDIT: Thanks to those who are posting up pics!

Second ... It certainly was nice to meet some of you fine folks, will certainly try to meet more the next time so let's do it again.

Third ... I too like to hear more of the exhaust sound on video clips. Perhaps all of you that attended can record the sound and post it here it was certainly great to listen to it in real life

Last .... and certainly not least ... thanks to all you others that came out with your fine cars Z4M ... 335i ... 335is .... and the fine looking 1M it was nice to see you all ... as someone already said let's do it again it was great fun.

I saw the fog move in so I made my way back home going west toward 402 and then home.

I am adding some photos I snapped with my iPhone ... funny how technology moves as fast as it does ... I have 3 other cameras 2 of them digital and like to use my iPhone the best ....

Drive safely and have a super weekend everyone

Cheers ... Rolf
agreed ... we need a circle pic next time

Very happy to see so many M3's all at once, with different mods... and thanks for RO Turbo who organized this meet. But I just want to make a little suggestion. If you have a chance to organize the same kind of meet in the future, you should help the folks to park the cars in different poses for photoshoot, rather than just line-up.

Just my 2 cents, Thanks again.
haha .. originally we were thinking about doing a circle pic but even getting everyone in a str8 line proved to be quite challenging and was like herding sheep ... bahhhh baahhhhh ... Next time we'll have pylons laid out with signs that tell everyone where to park ... lol

You need to frequent the Engine Section in m3post more often, 550whp is really nothing for the guys with superchargers these days.

Btw great job on the parking guys - like true BMW owners

Hey. I originally had the VT2-575 which dynoed 520rwhp/342rwtq but I since upgraded to the VT2-600. Thinking of VT2-650 but I need the ESS DCT software first. Awaiting their remote flashing tool!

Boom goes the dynamite

Got a CEL when I started the M this morning.

Clearly the stock engine and stock exhaust feel inadequate after yesterday.

All I recall it was a e92 Alpine White ... front splitter and rear spoiler in CF

I am sure the owner will chime in ... I took this picture when he raved his after market super exhaust then took off like an arrow to line himself up with all the other white cars The wheels are 20 inch and look real cool.

I took this picture since I will change my brakes to the same blue to match my LMB some day in the near future.

I still can't get over how good the M3 looks in various colors.

White. What can I say? You can't go wrong with Alpine White (were 40% of the M's AW or something?, lol) Really liked the metallic sheen of Mineral White (first time I've seen it, it looks better than in pictures)

Black. Meeeean.

Space Gray. Muuuuscular.

Silverstone. Cleeeean.

Melbourne Red. Suits the M well.

Blue. LeMans is a perfect blue color IMO.

etc.
Julie,

I am sure you will enjoy the pictures in this thread posted by Jason the Moderator and some others of cool black cars :

Enjoy ---> Click to see the fine shots

There are ways and means only it is time consuming ... here is a link re: blurring out stuff on a video there is tons of it on the internet

Was nice to meet you Sam,

Cheers, Rolf

PS. After checking out this clip I think we need a PhD first ... I think I'll skip it and rather have fun in my ///M3 (there must be simpler programs then this)
