Smile Im back to the M Family....56k Beware

Hey guys, well i owned a 2009 6 speed E90 M3 a couple of years back and got into a several different cars after that 2010 GT-R, 2011 Q7 TDI, 2011 C63, and now i am back in a 2011 E-92 M3 DCT. I chose the DCT for DD but to be all honest i thought the 6 speed was smoother. I have some mods on the way for the E-92 but nothing crazy since she is my DD. Anyways im glad to be back in the M family and hope to learn and also share my experiences. So far i have taken her out to my local track H2R to get a time and man she is fun to drive, a bit slower than my EX c63 but then again that thing had 420whp and nt-05's.

My Ex alpine white E90



The new Mineral White E-92





The devil for M owners my Ex C63 AMG




Just for fun here is my track toy:












Here are some videos and times from my local track Harris Hill Raceway comparing my different cars.

Track: Harris Hill Road Mazda Raceway, San Marcos, TX

2011 C63 AMG (420WHP, H&R Coilovers, NT-05's, Pagid Pads: 1:29.5

2010 R-35 GT-R (590 WHP): 1:26.1

2011 BMW E92 M3 DCT (Stock): 1:31.8

2013 Scion FR-S (183 WHP, Weight Reduction, Full Suspension, RS3'S, AP BBK, Mild Aero): 1:28.8

My E92 M3 DCT H2R VIDEO:


Back when i had less mods in the fr-s chasing a friend's e92 dct m3:


H2R Time attack with FR-S best time so far:

Great set up bro and congrats on the new E92. Do you prefer the E92 over your old E90?

Congrats!

Two questions...why the switch? And is the FR-S as rewarding to drive as everyone says?

Thanks for sharing. Love the 86 FR-S and are you planning to drop a to 2JZ engine in it? The FR-S will be a lot fast and an amazing track car.

I love the FR-S. What do you think about it as a dedicated track car? Seems like the M3 could be just as fast and still streetable. i've been thinking about using one as a track car, as well, so I'm curious on your thoughts.

Nice stable, there. Pretty impressive times with the FRS. I also swapped my C63 for an M3. I found the M3 a lot more involving to drive, although it is a 6 speed. Not sure if I would have unloaded the AMG if it was also a manual.
