Really nice,

I'm also thinking about ESS SC and an Akra exhaust.

Jamie, congrats on your gorgeous M3, and kudos on the interior color selection. (I'm already prejudiced on your paint choice.) The engine bay exemplifies putting your hard-earned where laymen will never see it but enthusiasts will go absolutely ape-s**t! Now I want to do that treatment to mine!

Wish me luck at CCA Oktoberfest concours, where I hope to do Moonstone proud. (The cars I've previously entered have done well, so he's hoping ...)

I didn't know we had another Moonstone and so close to IND. See you at Oktoberfest

clean, clean, clean!

you'll probably need a new set of rears after your long vacation road trip?

I am about halfway through the trip and they still have lots left yet. Highway miles are pretty easy on tires.

Good luck at Oktoberfest! We briefly met at the CCA Autobahn track day as I was drooling over your paint. Pictures do not do the car justice.

I was just at IND and Nate is kinda sexy......... Not as sexy as Individual Amarone though. JK!

You are right though, pictures just don't capture all of Moonstone's beauty....... it truly is a colour you never tire of looking at.

Thanks, Crazy Bimmer .. The car won its class in the concours at O'fest, and a friend raved about the color later in the week as she watched me run the autocross (it constantly changed colors in bright afternoon sunlight). Now it's pack for the next HPDE (its 7th) this weekend at Hallett.

Well Guys I arrived home in Alberta on the 6th of September and the car now has ~18000KM (11200Miles)....... The trip was awesome and the car worked well. All of the parts that IND provided for me are holding up amazingly and look like they were just installed. Props to IND for quality workmanship on all of their stuff........ Everyone knows that Akrapovic, BBS, Brembo and Eibach products are good....... The parts I am talking about are the painted parts that they did in house. All of the painted pieces that IND Did for me (Underhood, Grilles, licence plate frame, Key Hole Delete) are no worse for wear than if they were OEM pieces, no peeling, no chipping, no dulling, IMO That is quality work.


This Spring I intend to remove the Clear-bra from the car, polish the entire thing and have the whole car re-wrapped by one of the best clear film installers in the country. After this is all done I am going to load the car into my recently acquired enclosed car hauler and tow it down to Bimmerfest 2011. Hope to see you all there!

P.S. Look for a thread with lots of good photos detailing my trip across Canada and the US in the Mining for Moonstone M3...... I hope to have it done in a few weeks.

Smile A "problem" with 'Mining for Moonstone'

I'm having a problem: how do I some up your car in one word?... perfection or class?!



One-of-a-kind and truly stunning: you have great taste with the Amarone and the Moonstone!



Awesome car!

Very well executed photos. Better to have the ///M in Bayern than Ft. M (sorry!) I reckon - I miss the 'Bahn myself.

Thanks for the compliment!

I'd sooner have the ///M in Ft. Mac then be in Bayern with no M///. Bayern with the M/// would definitely be better, I would love to get to use her on the Autobahn on a daily basis. My current situation will have to do though, Ft. Mac makes the M/// possible for me!

Jamie mentioned it in this thread

Quote:
Specs on the wheels and tires are:
20x9+15 w 255/30/20F & 20x10+20 w 275/30/20R

Tires are Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Pole Position and the car is sitting on Eibach springs with stock EDC Dampers. No rubbing at all on this suspension/wheel/tire combo even with 5 people in the car (I tested this yesterday when my family went for an hour long ride with me in car).
