I'm back!

I lost my beloved M3 E92 almost a year ago and now I found my replacement. The plan was to drive my F30 for a bit then move to the new F80. But considering the amount of money it takes plus not enjoying the new 3 series style. I decided to get a 2011 sedan. I love its style much better than the new one plus the V8 is just crazy. I have been searching for a while and I finally found the right car with the right options. It looks like from an enthusiast's car around San Diego. If you know him maybe he can answer a few questions I have.

Is this Exhaust the M Performance or just the tips?

If I decide to peel the wrap do you think it will mess up the paint underneath?

Does this look like original M3 wheels and are they black from the factory or painted (matte finish)?

I have spacers from my previous car 15mm and 12mm. Would they be a flush fit or too much?

The car has Pirelli P Zero and they are noisy. Is that a normal thing for these brand of tires?

I would appreciate all your inputs. I feel like I got a good replacement plus the four doors.

very clean car, great pick up!

Is this Exhaust the M Performance or just the tips? - It looks like the M performance exhaust

If I decide to peel the wrap do you think it will mess up the paint underneath? - As long as it was done well you should be fine.

Yes this is 100 % sure the ///M Performance exhaust !
About the spacers...Mmmm no i would keep it like it is now ! (Would be too much)
About the Pirelli P Zero , yes they are more noisy than PSS !
About removing the wrap i'm not sure !
Also welcome back man and the car looks very good !

Looks great man, good choice...

Agree with previous input on exhaust and wrap.

Looks like the 359 comp package rims. BMW does sell them in gloss/matte black as well as alu. Is the car a comp pack? If so, I'd definitely assume it's OEM.

And the tires...won't be long before it's time to change mate. Still run the PS2's which are fine but hear the PSS are even better.

Cheers

looks great, and well taken care of. i may be in the minority, but i actually really like the roof with the wheels, the contrast is great. plus i love that splitter that hasn't been mentioned and is an expensive addition (is that BMW OEM?)

also, the pzeros may be loud, but they are a great tire but they don't last. i think they are great tires though, nice and tacky for the 7,000 they will last you.

Welcome back, very smart choice to get back into a true M car with unique engine !!
Finding a clean used E9x M3 isn't so easy, people are keeping them thanks to the S65 true high revving V8.

Not sure about that painted roof. It does not look like CF at all . Would have been better leave it AW.

Car looks great. The roof looks cheap. And the wheels in that color... IDK.

The exhaust must be awesome. I would go for the stock look bc that is what always looks most classy and clean (referring to wheels and roof). But the car no matter what, is a great choice.

^^ Video is so appropriate . You guys gave great input, THANKS!
I took off the wrap on the wing because it was peeling on the corners already, I might look for a genuine CF wing to replace it. The wrap on the roof is still close to perfect so I'll leave it for now.

I'm not sure if the splitter or side mirror cf's are original but thinking that this guy got M performance exhaust makes me think he will not go for imitations.

BTW... One thing I did that should have been a big No NO was I purchased it without actually seeing it. But I had this big hunch this car will not stay long at the lot so I had to make an offer right away. Counting on the words and pictures of my sales person and doing all the paperwork over the phone. I was very lucky. I called BMW assist and they told me I still have a years worth of free service.

So again thank you and I'm just enjoying my new used beast.... and where can I get that Shirt!

Welcome back!
Thanks!

The sales person says, It's real Carbon fiber! I was like no its not because Sedans never came with CF roof. It's actually a giant sticker. Oh boy.

It will stay until I get bored with it.

I am not a huge fan of the sedan, but when done up they look pretty good! This one is very clean, and the white and black is done very well.

nice car!
