I'm representing you guys though! I visited a cool track in Illinois: instead of a country club centered around a golf course, this is a country club centered around a track, with garages for the members, and even houses that back up to the track (akin to a house by the fairway). Bobby Rahal has built a house on one of their lots.

Here's a few laps in the M3 on just the 1 mile long North section of their track. The whole track is a 3-mile circuit.

Turn it up!

Where in Chicago are you? I will be in schaumburg on Monday thru the 16.

LOL! I could always use more stickers, Phil! I've been surviving for now by putting those little "Googly Eyes" on random things as I pass by.

I'm living in The Region (Merrillville, to be exact), but there is absolutely no activity in Indiana. I have to go elsewhere to get my fix!

Thanks!
Earmark on Beltline - check out the Formula One tint. You may need felt installed as e9x windows can scratch the tint.

Taking the springs back to stock since the drop is too low for my taste. Any shop recs in DFW?
Try Autoscope - 3 locations, but I prefer the downtown location. I have my neighborhood shop do most of my work - Dallas Auto Sports near the Arboretum.

Hey all,

Moving from Austin to the DFW area. Just wanted to say hello and ask a few questions:
-Any recommendations of shop to install AA pullies on an e92?
-Any notable places/individuals for detailing?

While I'll miss ATX, I look forward to meeting some DFW guys and girls!

Cheers!
Josh

What's up guys,

I'm from Austin texas.. I just purchased a 2011 e90 m3, I freaking love it. It came loaded without competition package (it's an e90).. but yeah.. it's awesome, and i'm local to you guys.. any body else in Austin?

Here are some pictures:
(blue angel eyes but might go to plain white, I have LED turn signals ready for install just need the time)

My beautiful fiance


http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f1...psa1d67db2.jpg

the best part for me.. the interior:



I may know you already, i've been around the car scene here for a bit.. the only non german cars i've owned were a 2012 ford platinum f150 w/eco boost and my 2013 raptor, the raptor i traded in for the M3.. i do miss the raptor that was probably one of the funnest vehicles i've owned but certainly does not compare to the m3, it was a good choice to trade in my opinion. Financially wise it was pretty stupid. The raptor holds value so much better in my opinion.. i purchased it fully loaded under MSRP due to my dealer connection (51K) I then put 13 thousand miles on it and got ford to write me a promise check to bmw to pay for it for 49.5..

anyway, here are some pictures looking forward to seeing you guys, hopefully we can cruise






my e36/donor car for my e30 s52 swaped car:

loonibab///m3 - nice car! Did you get that from BMW of Austin? Just wondering... I saw an E90 with fox red that was for sale a month or so ago.

I got my E90 there and I love it! Congrats on the new wheels!

Been on the general E9X forum for a while, but just got around to noticing this one dedicated to Texas (yeehaw!). Howdy! Went to the Cars and Coffee last month at Momentum BMW in Houston and it was awesome.
