Hey guys - just wondering if anyone knows the history of the 06 M3 (w/ Competition Package) currently at Bavaria. Seems like a decent deal with only 25k on it

The Swissvax stuff is fantastic. I have a range of their product but the cleaner fluid and Blau Weiss is really a great starting point for the paint.

The 1Z stuff is like crack, I love it all too. I have a 5 liter bottle of it Cockpit.

All of their interior stuff is great.

Glen, I'm still using the freebies you sent me(thanks for that again!) but now I'm wondering how much better is this Swissvax compared to the top end Meguiars stuff? What have you noticed?

The Swissvax is longer lasting and a deeper shine. It also goes on easier with less residue to remove.

Megs is good, Swissvax is better. It all is more tiered.

Talk to my buddy Derek at Modern Autobody.

Does the full thing and works as a full time detailer there at Modern and does high end stuff in the off time.

He does Ferrari's and Bentley's there and tons of BMW's.

The guy has a vast knowledge of paint correction and what works for what cars and what colors.

I do my own but I'm a detailing geek.

PM me.

Glenn

Delta P. This car is from Calgary. It was purchased by a fellow I know. He drove it for a couple of months but did not like it as a daily driver. Therefore he traded it off to bavaria a few weeks ago. It was purchased privately . If you want to know the buyer pm me and I will give it to you .

Yes I am still above ground. I was at the Show N Shine on the weekend. Only 1 M3 there. "moonstone" What a lovely color.
Im off to Laguna seca for on track on the 24th-26th with the porsche. Definately a different drive than the M3. Not as neutral handling but I sure like manually shifting rather than the DSG.
I haven't decided what to do with the M yet Other than not tracking it.
Im selling my forgelines so if you know someone who is interested These are the square setup i purchased from Turner .
We need to get together again maybe in July . You around?.

Yeah I'll be around in July.

Enjoy Laguna Seca.

Keep the M3. I think the DCT is fantastic. The car is gonna be a classic always and use the P-car as a dedicated track machine.

Post up the wheels here and in the Private sellers section, I am sure you will find a buyer.

I saw it on 23rd ave a couple of weeks ago too. I buddy who lives in Mactaggart thinks there's two 458s in the neighbourhood.

Speaking of spots. I followed a white E92 M3 out of Twin Brooks last week - anyone of the board?

For the price of lots in Mactaggart, I'd go elsewhere and get the 458 lol.

Its a loud area to live due to noise from Henday. Shame for a nice neighbourhood.

No such thing as an E93 (convertible) with ZCP..... Maybe you mean E92 (coupe) with ZCP.

If you did see and E93 in Frozen Grey, it is possible that the owner bought the ZCP wheels and put them on!

I saw it with my own eyes. Frozen grey E93 with competition rims + black exhaust. Guessing its a special edition

I don't doubt what you saw..... but I can tell you for sure that ZCP is not available on the Convertible (E93), only Coupe (E92), and Sedan (E90)!

It is very possible that the car was an Individual order in Frozen Grey and the owner either got Individual to give him the ZCP Wheels or he bought them separately. I guarantee you that a convertible won't have ZCP, only ZCP wheels unless it was a complete retrofit which I doubt!

The frozen finish could be a wrap too. The paint care protocol for the frozen cars seems nuts to me but the look is cool.

I saw said E93 this evening on the Tony in the west end. It is indeed a vert, in frozen grey sporting ZCP wheels. I was heading in the opposite direction however so I didn't get a chance to measure the wheel gap.
