Calgary Thread

Well Edmonton has one so why don't we?

I have only seen one other E9X M3 in Calgary (I guess I don't get out much).

But if you got one post up would like to see how many more of use there are.

Ordered my Eisenmann Race Exhaust yesterday. Hopefully it will be installed in the next few weeks. Anyone else in Calgary have one?

Yes, thats my car. Was at the Bank of Montreal on 17th Ave that morning. I'm impressed that your wife took the shot, my wife could not care less if she saw another M3.

My car is stock expect for the Beyern Mesh 18 inch wheels and Pilot Sport A/S Plus tires. Since Calgary's winters are usually pretty mild, I went with all seasons for the winters. If the weather is crappy I have a Subaru Legacy Spec B with winter tires as a back up. Unfortunatly, this winter I have been driving the Subaru more than I would have liked

Here's a pic of the M3 in the summer with the stock 19's:

Think she took it because a few days before she said she sees lots of M's and I said I didn't think there was that many around. So really she was making fun of me and proving me wrong.

Way to park on an end spot to avoid door dings. I get in trouble for that too....

Nice looking MR E90 batman!

Quick question for you with respect to the Beyern Mesh wheels.....did you get them in the right offset or are you using spacers? I ask because I'm thinking of getting a set for track wheels but I don't know yet if I can get them in the correct offset for the E90 and don't want to use spacers on the track.

Thanks

I went with 18x8.5" 30mm offset for the fronts and 18x9.5" 25mm offset for the rears. Because both of the offsets are within a couple of millimeters of the stock there is no need to use any spacers and you can use the factory lug nuts. I bought them from 1010tires.

They are not too heavy and seem to be built well, so I think they would do well as track wheels.

Goodluck
