My old AW and new Space Gray

I got the car super detailed so i had to grab some photos before it gets dirty. Theyre not the best photos but i hope youll still enjoy them. Feels so good to be in the last V8 NA M3 again

Here is the old shot of my M3 on the same location







2 Years later.......

here is the space gray. I think I like the color more than AW now. The lighting has gotten alot darker now, cause the street light is now gone and the huge house behind me was not lit up

JSCO - I vote for SG. I think it is the best stock color and shows the muscular lines and the various bulges of the car in highest relief.

Idk if this picture will help. Personally I would go look at both, im sure there are some bmw dealerships with both colors in stock. I love both colors and its nice that i had both. I was about to go with jet black but im glad i didnt. i cant deal with how it gets so dirty so fast

sick cars but epic location!

I think white M3's are "beautiful", but the E9X in space gray is pretty badass.. especially when done up with black accents (black M359's, black grilles, etc..)

Great to see people grabbing up the last V8s!

Haha, I instantly recognized this road. Man, I miss San Diego. Took a couple pictures here too when I had a G37 4 years ago or so.
