I have wondered this as well. Am I the only one in Calgary with Silverstone on an M3? I've seen a Silverstone M5 a couple of times but no other M3's...

Car goes in Wednesday for Akrapovic Evo system and ESS tune. Can't wait!

I almost went with a Silverstone when I picked up with my car, there was a pre-production Silverstone E90 that Calgary BMW was trying to unload. I think i've seen 3 in total in Calgary so far.

Most common colours by far. IMO they are safe/cop out.

Tons of SSII downtown.. probably the colour of choice of O&G execs from what I can tell.

Hi gang,

I just traded my '09 AW DCT e92 for an '11 SG 6MT e92! Yoohoo - nice to have a manual again.

I got it with Comp Pkg rims that were an option for the e9x, and they came from the factory painted black.

I'd be interested in a swap for the painted silver variety that comes as the standard wheels for the Comp Pkg. Pls let me know if you are interested.

AW and JB are definately the most common. I did see another SGM E90 the other day, and I know of 1 SGM coupe. Since it is only a single year color I rarely see it. Does that make me special

Post this in the regular M3 forum or Classifieds and I'm sure you'll get a lot of takers!

Interesting move... I loved going from 6MT to DCT but that's a big debate I don't want to open up .

I typically only buy fuel at Shell but happened to stop at the PetroCan on the #1 on my way to BC last weekend. They have 94 octane fuel there now and looking through their website it looks like 9 locations in Calgary have it.

Has anyone been using it?

I would find out what brand of replicas they are first. Second, I've heard mixed reviews on those tires. And finally, I would compare his price to how much it would cost to order solid replicas like Avant Garde M359 with your preferred tire.

If it all makes sense then perhaps offer him $1350 shipped (1100 for wheels, 250 for shipping) and negotiate from there.

FYI: I had my e92 detailed by 'Mobile Reflections' a few weeks ago.

They came to my house and did it in my garage.

Very professional to deal with, and very nice job. No regrets.
