Garage List
Arrow What exciting fun stuff have you done with or to your M3 today?

Tell us what have you done today to or with your ///M3 (can be anything, washed her, took her for a spin, gave her a nice polish, purchased this or that, took a friend for a drive etc. etc),

As our cars get older we might even do some DIY stuff and this thread might become very useful to all of us ... so tell us what did you do today to your ///M3? Who knows this might even become a Sticky

Let me start ... I ventured thru the snow today, bottled my batch of 60 bottles of red wine, packed them all into my trunk and made it safely back home. I had no choice in the matter my wife took our DD on a shopping spree so against my better judgement I had to take the ///M3. Naturally my toy that I washed so lovingly 2 weeks ago in our drive way is now all dirty again

BTW ,,, is your name on our fun list yet? ----> If not what are you waiting for? just click it's that simple

M3RD, you come up with the best topics. Well played sir.

Today I took her "to the limit", it was one of those rare drives back home on a perfectly smooth highway, horizon to horizon (no 5-0) and zero cars back and front. Dropped her into 3rd, and listened to that sweet engine induction sound wail to 8,400! 4th, and again hitting 8,400, and 5th! Scrubbed off some speed and back down to earth at 75 Would never do that if there was even one other car around, but like I said, a very rare moment on a normal day. This car is a beast.

^ Agreed- great topic.
As I have chosen to no longer drive the M3 in the winter, I stared at it longingly in the garage as I shovelled out my driveway.

...and you forgot...a cold tear rolled down your cheek as you signed for not being able to drive her...

I re-inflated the tires today. My M3 is sitting tucked away in my garage for the winter. I am going through SERIOUS M withdrawal. Anyway, I am keeping the tires at like 42 psi, and have a battery tender hooked up. I start the car every few weeks, and move it a little to take care of the tires.

Braved the 75 degree sunny day to pick-up my grandson (age 7) after school. We drove to Dana Pt. harbor for an "after school snack" and to look at cool stuff like different types of boats and mounted shark heads.

I think he likes the ride....snapping through the gears and riding in booster seat.

I hit a top speed of 37 mph while bringing my son to soccer practice. But the drive home after picking him was even better, almost hit 40 mph!

Added a IND carbon fiber spoiler (yesterday )

Leading edge painted mineral white.

I was going to DIY, but paid my detailer 70 bucks to put it on.

Picked up my friend and took a spirited drive to breakfast......then off to the helmet shop where I purchased my first helmet and then back home for a 3 hour detail. Perfect day!

i haven't seen my car for 3 days. I don't drive to work every day, so sometimes I don't even see it in my garage. Am I negligent?

Drove it and thinking the whole time that I need to wash it...seems to be an endless thought process.
