Definitely. This is my first car with dedicated snows and I love it.

DCT
Premium pkg
Competition pkg
Heated seats
Enhanced Audio
Silverstone w/ black and carbon trim
Carbon roof

I'm still somewhat torn on the exterior color and considering Interlagos or LeMans Blue.

Hey guys!

Just a interlagos blue E92 M3 on union street in Braintree heading toward the rotary. Time as around 3:08pm....

If your on here I passed you in a silver TTRS (ski rack on top).

Nice to see another E9x m in these neck of the woods!

Did it look nice (the I.B.)?

I am thinking about changing my exterior from Silverstone to Melbourne Red.

LeMans blue is a great color. Personally, I am getting a bit sick of silver and white on BMW's. It's getting a bit played out. They still look great, but I don't mind being a bit different.

It was a great looking color.. It was a bit dark outside so it almost had a purplish hue to it..could not agree more with the white and silver being played out on Ms.

But they are a hell of a lot easier to keep clean and do not show swirls and scratches nearly as close as my Jerez black...love this color but with my OCD it is such a bitch to keep looking perfect

Yup, mine is Jerez as well. I know your pain. Although it looks amazing when clean.

BTW I considered going with the black kidneys, but I feel like the car would look too dark. The chrome contrast isn't a bad thing with a darker color. What do you think?

I had the carbon fiber kidneys but went with the IND cosmetic package for a switch and I like the black gloss look. I had the CF side gills as well and just got tired of them. Still have them and can always swap back and forth. Black is good to have some contrast.

I've considered going out on a limb with a different color, but I just don't know if it will work

Nice pics, thanks for showing how it looks...

BTW, I'm jealous of your nice and large garage. I am in the process of looking for a house and that is near the top of my must haves.

Me too! I'm looking to buy a house as well and it must have a garage. I'm storing my car at my cousins garage for now to avoid paying for a garage.

I always bought a few parts for it which I can't wait to install them

You can buy a two post lift for $1400 from Greg Smith Equipment in tax free NH. I put one in last year. Need 220V for it (I wired in a subpanel from the house).

Thanks.

Yeah its nice when there is a lot of snow out and they are tucked away. Not much in my garage as you can see. lol

There is a table and more shelves on the other side. When I moved here one of my priorities was to have a 2 car garage and literally the day I drove up was the day I moved in. lol

Read the details at the Greg Smith Euipment website. Concrete must be 4 inches thick or more. You drill the concrete, hammer in anchors, screw studs into the anchors, and nuts over the post floor plates. I did all this myself. You also need 220V. I wired a subpanel into the barn.

I hope everyone is digging out of the snow and if you are a skier or boarder please go lay some fresh tracks down. My girlfriend and I dodged the storm Friday morning for a trip planned to Aruba. As much as I want to e skiing in this snow, I really needed a vacation out of the country and warm weather with nothing but lounging to do!

Endless619 what wheels are those on your M? Nice garage and clean looking M. We are looking for places right now as well..only problem is Boston is a premium to find places with a garage ad usually it's a tandem spot, which I can't stand and have no place for all my parts and other stuff laying around into garage now. Or it's a bigger garage you are sharing with others and still no place to store stuff.

I hope everyone has power and no significant damage. My folks had a tree fall on the garage. Luckily only minor roof damage and no injury to my dads collection of bentleys and Aston martins (yeah I know he is a sucker for English cars and trying to get him to the German or Italian side).

Snow tires + DSC On = Great traction

Snow tires + DSC Off = Lots of fun!
