Thanks! Just drove back downtown from Markham (got the winter tires installed) in mostly heavy traffic so still haven't had much chance to experience what she can do but will be out for a cruise tonight after dinner. Also have a bunch of stuff ready to install (blacklines, painted reflectors, blackout grille/side gills) so will hopefully fit it all in tonight.

But seriously... what beast this thing is. And I haven't even broken 5000rpm!!!

Here are a couple of quick pics from my delivery... only had time to install the blacklines and blackout grille last night but will try and get more pics up soon once the mods are completed (including tint on Monday).

I must say the colour is absolutely stunning, these pics are not very accurate colour wise aside from maybe the last one though. They have a white 2009 M3 sedan in the showroom just next to the delivery area and although white was originally my first choice I actually prefer melbourne red after seeing them back to back.

Absolutely no regrets, fantastic car and fantastic colour. If only the weather would cooperate today... although I may trek out this afternoon and see how the winter tires perform.

Congrats and thanks for the pics! Doesn't look like the weather is going to cooperate for any serious driving, but enjoy anyways!

I was downtown yesterday but it wasn't me - mine was in the parking garage all day. Must be a twin. Member here?

Vise - looks great! IMO - the stock 18's look better than the 19's on Mel. Red! My SG originally was ordered with 19" and the dealer put 18" on it when they put it in the showroom. When I bought it I told them to leave it that way!

Lookinng forward to seeing the Matte Black and Blacklines - thinking of doing the same - where did you buy from?

I was out late last night after work so I left my car at work in the garage and took a cab home. Took the train in this morning - planning to drive home later this evening once traffic settles down.

You driving today?

Yeah, definitely agree on the 18's on melbourne red, I think they look way more mean/aggressive than the 19's. Fits into my master plan of getting a set of matte black 19's for the summer too.

I ordered the matte black grilles/side markers from Simon at Rennspec, he has a bunch of posts in the Vendors forum so contact him if you're interested. The blacklines I've had for a while (they were on my 325i), ordered them a few years back from Morristown BMW but they should be available from several vendors on E90Post.

Tried to install the black side markers this morning but no luck getting the stock ones off, waiting to see if Simon has sedan specific instructions as they appear to be different than those on the coupes. Same deal on the painted reflectors, think it is too cold out as I'm not getting any flex on the bumper cover in order to pry the stock ones off. I'm sure they'd be much easier to install in a heated garage!

Thanks for the info - I am also thinking of upgrading to 19's in the summer in either matte black or something greyish - we will see. I think I will do the matte black front and side grills, undecided about the blacklines.

Anyone take to the roads today in their //M? Not me used the SUV.

Nope, I was cruising around in my 325i earlier and its a mess out there... almost got stuck a few times (none of the side streets around here have been plowed) but the DTC mode helped out as usual.

Going to a family thing tomorrow and taking the M3, hopefully the roads will be mostly cleared... we'll see how it does either way, the M3 is going to be my daily driver so hopefully it is capable in this mess.

I drove mine home from downtown to Oakville tonight. Left around 6pm and it took less than an hour. Car handled well on the snow pack roads, but I did get hung up in the deep snow on my road just as I was trying to pull into my driveway. My road was not plowed and I made it through the windrow left by the plow at the beginning of the street but could not turn the M out of the tracks left by other cars to get into the driveway. I was also going pretty slow as the snow was pretty deep (over the front lip) and I did not want to damage it.

Anyone else have any experiences from today? Certainly was messy out there.

Got my car tinted today with Formula One Pinnacle (35% all around) and it looks awesome, will try and get a pic up tomorrow. For anyone looking to tint their car I highly recommend The Detailing Shop in Newmarket, excellent job as always.

This damn weather just won't cooperate though, want to get the car washed cause it is filthy but it has been a mess out there.

Vise - Looks like you were spotted on the E90 post thread. Was that you out playing in the snow? It looks like it has Parkview plates but couldn't tell for sure by the pictures.

Yep that was me... just responded in that thread as well. Small world I guess!

Speaking of which, need to get those Parkview plate covers off asap.

Yeah, I had my plate covers off before I pulled into the driveway. No offense to the dealers, just but I like the clean look much better.

Same here... went to grab a set of smoked plate covers last week but they were out of stock so it had to wait until I pulled the ones off my 325i. Looks much better now.

Merry Xmas guys... went for a long drive today (about 60kms) and must say I am completely in love with my car. Tomorrow can't come soon enough... for now this wine will do just fine though.

Hope all is well with you and yours.
