so I visit my inlaws in SF quite often. I noticed a block from us, there's a white E92 at West Portal/Forest Hill usually parked on the street or on the driveway

Anyone on here? nice car man.

I bent a rim (3-piece forged HRE) and nearly destroyed one of my OEM CF splitters.

On my current M3, I'm going no bigger than 19"s and will not lower the car.
Ah man, this is the answer I was afraid of, but way better to hear now. Bummer on the bent HREs, that couldn't have been fun. I've got a three piece DPE wheels that I'm not looking to wreck either– might have to give another thought to selling them and going with my 18" apex for city duty. Atleast south park is a quick jump to the freeway and getting out of that mess

Thanks for the insights!
I have an E90 with 220 19" and ground control sleeve overs setup by Alekshop. I drive in SF at least once a week for Nike Run Club. I drive thru SoMa and Union Square frequently but know the city quite well. It's not the roads like the ones going thru Beverly Hills. My advice, drive slow and learn your pot and sink holes. Also learn the timed streets like Franklin, Pine, etc. I never bent my Alpina Styling II 18" after 10 years of SF driving, and haven't had any problems. Just keep it under 60 mph on city streets and you'll be fine.

Welcome to SF.

Welcome to SF.

Thanks for the insights! Just got up here, and did some city driving 2 days ago moving stuff around– I came out unscathed, but some of the potholes I dodged were insane. I've been in other cars and seen some pretty gnarly roads up here, but it's a bit different when you have 20" wheels and about 3" of clearance up front.

Yea man. I live in san jose and go to sf occasionally to party. I don't know how you are driving with 20's and rd's. I hate driving with 20's and eibach's! Lol! But then I have seen some people with 20's and sleeve kits. Insane. Hope to see that wrap in person. Very nice job on that!

Yea its a very clean job and nice color too. Join "Drive club" on Facebook. There's a thread on here for the club. Jon Huang is the person you should pm and he will send you a Facebook request for the club. I just joined the club and met some people yesterday. These guys are always doing something so it's a great way to meet the local community.

I only see a black e90 one in alameda and all he does is stare at me at the few times i see him while driving mine. I used to see an aw e92 with the zcp package near alameda hospital but always parked.

I'm part of the bay area s2ki clan and we get together on Fridays across from Cisco area, does the M3 guys gather anywhere on routine basis? I can't get out much with the kids but once in a while I do like drive out.

P.S. anyone have a FULL Akrapovic exhaust I can listen to? I have the rear slip on section and debating if the x-pipe addition might be too loud.

We have a private garage location in Fremont if you guys want to do a mini-meet I'll be happy to host it one of these nights.


thanks!
