Got to check out new m3 in person. some pics. silverstone on black.

Went to check out one of the first e92 m3's in the northwest today. It was a customers car so they wouldnt let me sit or drive it obviously but i got to check it out and take some pics, i must say the car looks alot different in person then in pictures, it looks alot lower in person then it does in pictures and its has a ton of presence even amongst other e90/e92 normal 3 series. I love the looks especially from the front and profile.

anyways car is silverstone on black, 19's, sunroof (no CF roof), EDC
customers car awaiting delivery at bmw of bellevue in washington state.

At first looks I thgought it was mine, but my car has the CF roof. I am taking delivery on Sat, or Mon. I can't wait. I guess the first two cars in Seattle are both SS on black.

In comparison with the e92 the RS4 is both boring looking and slow. There is no way this car is a flop. (i didnt even like it that much before seeing it in person either, i wanted to dislike it, i wanted to say "o well the e46 m3 is better" but honestly i cant say that after seeing it in person.)

i saw this same car in at BMW Bellevue AFTER it was prepped, washed and waxed and it looked stunning to say the least. i would have gone with the CF roof though, but otherwise this car looked great in person. The pictures here aren't that accurate. To say it is a "flop" just makes you sound like a hater. lol RS4. whatever...

RS4 is a nice car. I personally think the e92 M3 looks like it has a better fit and finish. Either one isn't a flop.

What the hack are those awful reflectors doing on the bumper, is that a US thing?

If so then surely BMW could have come up with something better than that.

P.S.
To regard the RS4 as boring and slow is clearly someone talking who has never driven the car at all because if you had then you would know just how amazing it really is. As for slow, well maybe on the track compared to an M3 but on the road I hope you meet one in your stock M3 because at the lights you will be in for a whipping.

Nice single hump car. Needs a CF roof IMO.

I don't think the Audi is a bad car. I test drove an RS4 and almost bought it. My brother and my best mate both drive Audis. Audi and BMW are both great cars. I decided to go with an M3 at the end. That being said, I don't understand why Audi drivers always coming into our forums talking bad about BMW cars. I never go into Audi forums (if they had any??) and talk trash. It's like the Audi drivers always trying to prove something, or coming in our forums because they are doubting if they made the right choice. Oh, and by the way I welcome any Audi to sit next to me in a light. He will be seeing my M badge on the trunk.
