The 604 members on this forum seem rather quiet, probably all quite busy? (I know I am LOL) Seriously, or the 604 local M3 people use another forum instead? I haven't really visited other forums than this on for my M3 cyber social activities

Perhaps you can get something going once you move here??

I found that a combination of having a lot of other meet and greets and lack of organization is at fault. But I am always up for someone setting a ///M specific meet and greet (although everyone should be welcomed ).

This weekend there is european car show out in the states but there usually isn't too much newer bmw content. Lots of vw's and audi's. Its about 20 min east of Bellevue. Beautiful background scenery of the mountains.

And not sure if its your cup of tea. Also in the states. This one is July 6.

Bump !

I'm going to come to Vancouver around late August to mid-September. Brother decided to leave Canada, I need to sell his E46 M3 as well.
Meanwhile I also need some places to shop for my e92 m3 for parts like wheels, carbon fiber parts etc.

Any suggestion will be appreciated

There is a fairly fancy place called Performance One in Richmond.

While I have not actually shopped for parts like that yet, I am sure there are many other places others can recommend from their first-hand experience.

A lot of the M3 locally don't go on the forum much, just meet randomly for cruise or eat and usually in the same friend circle. Last meet we had, had around 10 Ms. I think only 3 of them are on the forum and they aren't active

Anyone use wechat? Theres a bmw group on there for locals in van, but mostly chinese use it...

I think it takes a lot of effort to get everyone together, someone up to the task?

It would be fun to meet other M3 owners. It does seem like very few of the owners around here are the kind to be active on forums. It's a great place for resources, though, so I'm all for it.

I just ordered a cable so I can do some coding, like folding the mirrors automatically on lock. Reading all the work required to set it up is kind of scary..

Maybe there's someone in Vancouver who does coding?

I've got a cable and I've coded the basics on my M3 but I don't claim to be an expert. How bout a coding meet?

The BC bimmer guys have a weekly meet usually down at Market Crossing on Marine Way in Burnaby on Thursday nights. The Audi and VW groups also meet there so there's usually quite a few cars to check out. I've lurked there a few times. The last time I saw a few E9x M3s. If anyone wants to meet up there this week I'll drop by.

I've got work done at Performance One. Good guys, but they don't have anything in stock except a few Vossen wheels on display. They are more of a tell them what you want and they order it in place.
