Just picked up a 2012 E92 in Brass Metallic Paintworks (One of One in North America). Coming from a C63, it's a huge change in regards to some things. But having driven it for 3-4 days now, absolutely loving it and not regretting the switch. Any of you guys running your M3's in winters with a good winter set?

I ran mine last winter on Blizzaks. Most guys I know do the same. I ran skinnier tires (275/255 set), but some guys run a 295/265 set. Which seems a bit wild for deep snow runs... You'll float on top. This winter I'll probably go skinnier. Car plain looks goofy with little 245 rears though, like a "stanced" out Honda.

I came from a FBO C63 too (600chp/575ctq). They are brutal, but they just aren't the same class. I've smacked down some C63's pretty easily in my lightly modded M.

FS: BBS LM-R in DBK finish 19" rims
FS: BBS LM-R 19 Inch DBK Finish

They are 19x9.5 front and 19x10 rear in DBK finish. There is a small amount of curb rash on two of the wheels but not bad enough that I have seen a need to repair it. It is purely cosmetic and would be an easy fix. It currently have P zero tires with 70% tread left, Rears need new cuz one got blown somehow..

Price 3800 picked up

Congrats! Brass metallic is a fave of mine - I special ordered that car back in the day, along with a couple others that were dubbed the crayon box by my coworkers at the dealership. There was a Dakar, Lime Green, Lipstick E93, and the north store ordered a LSB coupe.

Hi all, this morning I spotted a grey E92 M3 with splitters dropped on silver ZCP wheels.

This was in the west end of the city by Aspen (17 Ave and 69 st).

Is this someone on here? It had a pretty bad ass exhaust and I was just curious what system it has.
