Thumbs up Video of E90 M3 in NJ

A quick walkaround of a blue E90 M3 in NJ




At least one escaped the carnage on the Courage!

Some people need to take rotating 24 hour shifts there and catch all the goodies.
IB looks good in sunlight.

Any one close to BMW NA HQ that wants to take some high res photos??

Just move aside the Mini Clubman so it doesn't wreck the photo of the M3

car isn't there anymore...I live across street and I checked all the lots and nothing, I peaked in the covered garage there is a Phantom and many cars but who cares about that, I went armed and ready w/ my camera to all lots and the "new buildings" parking lot...unless there is another lot I don't know about with a secret entrance...damnit I wish I was home when I read the original thread on m5board they moved by the time I got here grabbed my camera and when across street...so close!!

Two things. Headlight washers are not retractable and sucks that the license plate holder is built into the bumper. I want none of that.

ok just got back from checking the last bmw lot the I didn't check and its there snapped some pics but they are a bit dark I'll post anyway....it looks so beautiful even in the darkness, I pointed my headlights towards it and you could really see the purplish tint of IB, I hope it doesn't snow b/c tomorrow morning I'm heading back over there for some day time shots....

Muffler is visible from the rear so they didn't changed that, but I had to drop down to see it so its not soooooo bad

Thanks for the info. Good to see that POS reflector works.

Yeah, does the dealer drill it or the factory?
Hopefully, the dealer so I can tell them to cancel that.

+1, I love the colour. Shame about the car though.

good:

- dimensions
- front bumper
- love the wheels
- side skirts are nice too
- trunk spoiler

bad:

- front bumper doesnt stand out too much from Msport
- 3 Coupe/Sedan are different and now the Coupe front is on the Sedan...weird
- quads look tacky but I think they will look slightly better in real-life
- hood is cheap looking with oversized powerdome
- mirrors look stupid from front view
- sidevents are really bad. I like the M5 vents but these are just huge chrome strips that look cheap especially on any paint but silver/SSII.
- needs whitelines as stock!

Im Guessing you didn't like the E46 m3 too much either because the quad setup is almost identical to the e46, the new m3's powerdome is a a little bit more pronounced than the e46 powerdome but similar setup, and the e46 has chrome side grills for the sidvents (which i think is tackier).
