4 M3 Sedans + red e93 M3 Convertible @ BMWNA

ok very quickly b/c I have to run back and snap some pictures b/c before coming home decide to pass by BMWNA lot to see if there is anything there and wa-la 2 AW/FR, 1 AW/BLK and SG/Blk, I jump out of my car to get a closer look of FR and its exactly how people have described it, not a true RED but more brownish like a BRICK....there is a delivery truck there and a security car pulls into lot I jump in car and drive off to hurry home and grab my camera and run back, as drive away from lot and driving down road NJ State Trooper flashes me with his side bulb and I see he stops and puts the car in reverse but then decides to drive off (close call) I'm not sure if the security guard called him or not and quite frankly I don't care, I'm switching cars now and going back (my car has tints and no front plate) hopefully the delivery truck/security/po-po are gone and I'm able to take pictures but I finally get to see FR in person (changed my order today to IB/FR) my only hope is that they are still there tomorrow morning so I can see it in the day light.... keep tune I'll be right back to post up the pics, hopefully they aren't too dark...

I just looked @ the pics and wow they are horrible, hopefully the cars will still be there tomorrow morning and I'll get some better shots.....A+ for effort

Melborne is a great color, I didn't think it was going to look that great IRL....I'm going to be very happy w/ FR...and those who get a Vert are going to love it, it is sexy especially in MR...

I'm very excited also, my CA put into the system today and he says it went through and that he'll let me know of any updates....my OC still hasn't been updated......FR extended doesn't look as bad as I thought IRL...

I'm on cloud 9 right now, I hadn't passed by BMWNA in about a month and last time I got to see a IB E90 and decided to passby tonight and I just hit the Jackpot, I think I'm going to passby every night until I get my car...

question...are your pics an accurate represntation of what FR looked like? They seem to be pretty damn close from what I can judge.

Flash seems to distort the colors though. See if you can get daytine shots. And take a squeegee!

Well the parking lot has very poor lighting and as much as I wanted to illuminate it with my highbeams it was very difficult, so its hard to really judge with the darkness and the pictures, tomorrow I'll be able to better tell when I see in daylight, maybe someone from the UK who's seen it in daylight and upclose can answer more surely, but I don't want to say yes but it is close...

FR extended looks much better IRL, not sure if I'll change my order I don't feel its a must have....aluminum also looks good has blueish hue to it and doesn't look bad with the extended, I personally would think it would look better without the extended though b/c its not so busy with 3 colors i.e black dash then aluminum then FR

again hopefully tomorrow morning they'll still be there and I could really get a feel for all the colors, especially MR which I think looked great, its now my second option in color...but right now I got IB/FR....

Agree, too much with aluminum. My favorite is extended and black carbon fiber leather.

I tried to take the pictures at a angle so I didn't get any reflections....its been raining here all day, snow all day yesterday rain all day today, I'll definitely take the squeegee I have one in my trunk...but since I have tints and no front plate when I came home to get my camera I switched cars just in case Trooper was still in the area and wanted to mess with me he couldn't...

Hotness!

Weird that they completely cover up E92 gills. Maybe because they don't want debris to get in. Does that mean the E90 gills aren't functional?

I'd much rather have amber in the headlights instead of on the bumper. You could always swap out the headlights with euro versions.

I think if anyone is going to get extended then they should go with CF so it flows from dash to leather, and if not extended you have the freedom to choose since its a break in the black...aluminum looked good like I said but not with extended...

That was a E93 and it has vinyl covers everwhere, front rear, emblems, gills....nothing to do with debris, they just anounced the vert about a weekago, I guess they haven't gotten around to taking covers off b/c its a test vehicle...
