NE, in the communities facing 64th Avenue. I'm glad I live in the NW to be honest, never have problems like this up here.
ouch, if I lend mine to u, i would drive without a hood, that is swagging, but don have the courage to try. haha anyways, u are getting a very cool hood!!
By the way, NE is kinda messed up...

Oh totally,

I just thought it was kinda random that I was the only car to be hit out of the 10 or so on the block...

NW too, I caught a glimpse of them while they did it as I was walking out... looked like a bunch of punk kids with nothing better to do during summer holidays.

Sucks to hear

Haha thank you! Yes it is, I don't plan on parking my car outside in those neighbourhoods again, garages only!

People make no sense these days, stuff like this reminds me of the one scene in Dark Knight where Alfred is talking about that bandit that robbed all those jewels but just chucked them away cos people like that just want to see the world crumble.

On the bright side, Arkym hood ordered.

Come on guys, let's get a HUGE meet on for this year!! http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?p=11790534

Either that or a sleeve-over kit is the root I plan to go! I kind of messed up and got 295/30 in the rear (OK) but only 265/30 in the front and I'm afraid the wheels gap is going to be ridiculous.

Hopefully you guys will have some opinions and suggestions, but I've been tossing around the idea of purchasing a summer car, most likely an E93 2009+. However, I'm worried about some of the dyno numbers that I've seen from stock M3's. Due to our elavation, NA cars typically don't mod too well, or respond with big gains.

So my questions are, anyone have baseline dyno charts, and then some of going to stage 1 or 2? Anyone go from a modded Evo/STI/Ralliart/WRX etc? I put down 275hp/320ft/lb on Sunny's Dyno Dynamics, and I'm finding that it's just not quick enough for me. My Ralliart runs out of breath from 5k+ on, which I'm hoping will be cured if I went to an NA V8.

Should I wait for the F8x M3? Or find a good deal on a 2009+ one? I can't see myself paying full sticker for a new one since a new model will be out at the end of 2013 and values for e9x's will drop. Anyone returning their lease soon?

Is the convertible that much slower? I'm so new to M3's and BMW's in general, so I figured the e93 would be heavier, but not so much that I had to have the e92. Plus I need to get away from junky japanese interiors, and I've always wanted a proper summer car.

It is about 400lbs heavier....

Get an Akra exhuast and ESS tune and you should be fine...

Stop by Tunerworks this Saturday and I will take you for a quick rip and you can see for yourself...

I'm busy this weekend, otherwise I would have taken you up on that offer. When buying used, any particular problems to watch out for?

The real sacrifice you make on the e93 is chassis rigidity IMO. The 400lb doesn't help.

Best thing you can possibly do! So much of these cars comes down to intangible factors leading to enjoyment.

Definitely need a G48 spec coolant such as OE BMW or Zerex. I don't know much of the technical details, but switching coolants can leave residues and give you some problems.

Thanks for the reply stefan! I think I'll stop by the dealership today n just pick up some from them. That way I'm not switching coolants so hopefully no problems!
