Yeah I found out the hard way, got changed into golf clothes, went out the door, and then went right back inside.

The forecast looks good for the weekend though.

Great pics. Love your setup, but the orange reflectors stand out a little.

I was also chuckling to myself that in order to get a nice empty parking lot in Calgary that you had to choose a Home Depot. At least with oil prices slowly ticking back up hopefully you will have to choose another location for a shot next summer.

I love the AW, but everytime I see a really clean one I am reminded of StarWars!

Great ride, hope you are enjoying it and that you have had better weather than TO this summer for the E93.

COR Forged rims 9.5" up front, 11.5" rear, Pirella PZero's 255/30/20 up front, 325/25/20 on the rear.

Offset unknown as the manufacturer doesn't revela this.

I also would be interested in hearing about snow tires as I have just picked up a 2009 M3 Sedan and will be winter driving it on all but the worst days. I am in Kelowna so the conditions are not quite so severe as Calgary.

I have the 19" 220M wheels for summer tires, and am buying the 18" 219M wheels for the winters. I know 17" won't work. The BMW shop is saying likely go 235 wide, maybe 245, but not going to stagger (as the summers are). I was using Dunlop WinterSportM3s on my 535xi and was very pleased with them. Considering Blizzaks or Hankooks for the M3.

Any suggestions??

Hey gents,

I am thinking that I am going to park the M for the winter (I know ). Is anyone interested in my winter rims? I have the BMW M approved package that was a whopping $4400 new . I used them for one season (6000 km) and they are in mint condition. There is a little rash on one of them, no idea how I got it. The wheels are 8.5 all the way around so you can rotate them and get really good life out of them Just wanted to see if anyone is interested, let me know guys! FYI I am located in Edmonton.
