Another Introduction...

What have I got?
Purchased new from WC BMW - 2013 M3 Pure with DCT, 19’ 220M rims + black leather carbon interior - July 2013.

Where did I come from?
2010 Golf R – ‘slightly’ modified

How did I get into an M3?
Was looking at a 2013 Cayman demo & was advised by the ‘boss’ I couldn’t have one so was looking at a 335 M-Sport Hi-line coupe. Saw the Pure & did the deal.

Mod’s:
On - Meisterschaft cat-back, Black front & side grills, Supreme 22 tint, Angel Eyes, Recaro Monza-Nova child seat
To fit - RPI air scoops, CF front lip.
To buy - Black rims, CF diffuser, ENVY intake
Wish list – Performance seats, SC, BBK, coil-overs etc….

Not as exciting as some build threads but that's it so far

Interesting. Why would he not want you to drive a Porsche? Thats like not wanting to take a supermodel on a date - what do you do for a living? this is how I also ended up in my M - I was looking at the Cayman and then got reccomended the M3, never looked back - did you get a chance to test one? I honestly think you made the best choice!

So without further delay -

WELCOME

Car looks really nice & clean, I can understand the change of wheels on the white, I think it will look nice! have fun and post pics as they come!

It's an M3, stock its exciting.

Very nice by the way! Cannot wait to get mine, just need to wait (very impatiently) till middle of next year.

Funny how we curse the "decisions" the bosses manipulate but then secretly thank them when their right.

Haha....I suppose they are called a 'poor mans 911' for a reason,

As Jeremy Clarkson says - It kind of says to the world 'My life didn't REALLY turn out like I thought it would'

Having said that, I think the 2013-14 model is absolutely gorgeous. Id have one if someone threw it at me.

Working on an external microphone set-up for the GoPro with my video producer
He'll probably read this & see the funny side .....

I'll post a better version up & take it over the 5k's in the next couple of weeks

Front spoiler/splitter awaiting install - body shop not back till mid-Jan.
Air scoops arrived & hopefully installing them tomorrow.
Also purchasing some 'parking sensors', you can never have enough & a Blackvue Monday.... Hopefully get them in early Jan too.
