Don't let the M5 sound fool you, its a 10 cylinder...its the best sounding car out there. My buddy had an E60 M5 with Eisenmann Race and it sounded better then anything I've ever heard. The M3 sounds great, but will never sound like an M5.
Thanks - yeah I'm hoping someone else in Toronto installs a Dinan exhaust on their M3 (once its available) so I can hear it first! Pricing: I guess I'll wait to see what the Dinan pricing is, but their M5 exhaust is $2,500-$3,000 which seems to be around the same as other higher end systems...

That would be a pretty neat photo thread.

Having the coffee inside Starbucks is much safer for the interior than those cup holders.

No kidding - I feel like the Cliff Claven of Starbucks - the one near my office - as soon as they see me, they get my coffee ready! Get a couple of freebies per week though!

You can find me at about 7.15am at the SB@Warden & Steeles.

My wife used her SB mastercard to accumulate points from our $100000 reno.It paid for our coffee at home for about 2 years

The manager at the SB where I work just gave me a SB polo shirt (black with green emblem). I told him I wouldn't wear it cause I was worried he would put me behind the counter in the morning to make me work for my coffee.

On the flip side you could walk behind the counter and grab a cup undetected!

HAHA - thats a pretty old one I think!

I did see a MR E92 on the QEW around 3:00pm at about Miss. Rd. It was going east bound. Looked to have a sunroof. I was heading in the opposite direction and only got a quick look.

Sorry should have been a little more clear - at Starbucks you can get a stopper or plug that fills the lid opening which reduces spillage in the car. If you havent seen them, just ask for one next time you go through the drive thru. I drink my coffee black so they tend to fill it to the brim.

Black E93 with BBS style winter wheels behind me at Sunoco eco wash off Rutherford a couple days ago.
White E92 with carbon roof and I think factory 19's (they were spinning hard to see) on Finch and Dufferin yesterday.
Also was at Maranello yesterday and there was a Black E93 with the factory winter wheel package waiting in the bay to be delivered.
Anyone here?

Cool

I saw a white e92 non M3 on Bloor, I don't know whether it was a 335 or 328 or what but it had the roof painted black to look like an M3 with a carbon roof. Had me fooled for a second then I noticed the lack of a power bulge and startred laughing out loud

10am: NB on Islington just south of bloor - BLK/BLK E92 (not sure if Jet or JzB, pretty dirty)

Not sure if anyone here?

I also saw one today. AW E90 with tinted windows SB on Bay at Wellington around 10 am. It was really clean, makes me realize I need to get mine washed still.

Couple days late but spotted a Silverstone II E90 M3 on Saturday around 5:30pm parked on a side street next to the Shoppers at Queen East/Carlaw. Had the BMW OEM winter tire setup as well.

Also got my car washed on the weekend and again today, hopefully it stays clean for longer than a few hours this time.
