Made the jump from the bowtie to an E90

Well i've been a die hard GM nut for a long time and i've been driving a 2009 G8 GT for awhile now and been happy with it, but this car came available and after one drive i was hooked, I drive ALOT for work and this car is just phenomenal, i can't say enough good things about it lol

I feel you bro. I was or still am alil a big GM fan. I still support chevy in the NASCAR series. But after owning two camaro s, one was a z28 and a SS. I never looked after having my first e46 M3. You'll enjoy and welcome.

Big fan of the G8. It almost likes like it was the template for the current CTS-V. With that said, Welcome! The M3 is a pleasure to drive.

Was also sad to see the G8 go. I guess they're building a new car on the Holden platform that will just be called the SS.

Congrats and welcome to a fellow SSII E90 owner!

I heard that, but was disappointed when i saw that there was not going to be a manual option

That is the infield road course of Texas Motor Speedway

I was working an event there and meandered onto the road course on a break and snapped those pics

Nice car! Out of curiosity, how did you manage to get a track cleared to do that photo shoot?

Timing, I was helping at an event that was being hosted on that infield circuit, and we had gone cold track because of a wreck, so I drove out to clean up some marker cones and check on the wreck and as I was walking back to my car I thought it would be a cool photo
