That's a lot of white M3's in the area. I have just agreed to terms with my local dealer on a M3 coupe. Just back-n-forth on color. Down to Silverstone and Interlagos.

Nice

Personally I would do Silverstone/Fox Red and Interlagos/Black

Competition pkg is definitely a most if I was ordering a new one.

Have you decided on whether DCT or Manual?

Your color with the foxy red is the best combination imo

It is one of those, SS/F.R. or IB/black. I have time to decided as I will not take delivery until late May. Scheduling PCD just prior to Memorial Day weekend.

Configuration, Comp pkg, Prem, DCT (for now), heated seats and Enhanced Audio. I might opt for the extended leather. Not sure.

Mods will be mostly cosmetic. Black front grilles, carbon fiber rear spoiler and gills. If MT, I would have Turner install a short-shift kit.

Great mods

Carbon fiber trim? I would definitely recommend the extended novillo leather.

Agreed. It's just a question where the budget screams "enough". The following month my wife will be taking delivery of a X3 m-sport. I suspect some of my auto budget $$$ will go to that transaction.

Would anyone like to try and set up a last minute ///M & Coffee meet this weekend?? Im going to pull mine out since it should be nice, and get the flat spots out, battery charged, ect.

Im also thinking I might go test drive some new cars since the fiance' is back home for a funeral, and I have no plans...and I think that more places out here would be more willing to do test drives if you pull up in a nicer vehicle.

I'm so tempted to taking it out but it's just too clean

Could really hear that beast scream under the hood.

Some of us are way north. Took the M3 out today and it got squirly on the ice up here but glad I got it out and drove around. People were like WTF is something so clean and on the ground doing out and about in this weather. lol Back to the X5 tomorrow.

R Compound tires on black ice = fail. Put Hankooks back on and those suck too. lol

Car definitely feels a bit groggy until it warms up on those super cold mornings, but once it's up to temp the beast is back! I run winter tires (Wintersport 3D) and so far I have been pleased in the limited snow we have had so far.

Mine is filthy right now after a lot of driving this past week. I need to get it washed this weekend.

I have an 08 E90M3 (JZB on Black) that is a year round daily driver. I use snow wheels in the winter on all the cars. I bought the cars to drive. The E90M3 has about 49k miles.

It is lightly modded with quad resonated x-pipe, underdrive pulley, K&N filter, Vishnu Procede tune with water/meth injection, H&R springs, pulled camber pins, braided steel brake lines, high temp brake fluid, and StopTech Street pads. A software update to 240E, MS intake and Megan catback are on the future mod list. It has to stay a civilized daily driver. If I had the money, I would buy a supercharger kit, but will probably have to wait a couple of years and buy a used one then.

If someone sets up an informal get-together that is not too far from me, I would be interested if I am free. I am either in Hampton NH or Concord NH.
