M3 Photos Finally!!!

Apologies for the quality of the pics...camera skills are not my friend's forte!
Hope the interior shots assist those who are currently contemplating this exciting combination. Plenty more on the way...New cameraman included!

Cheers

Haha, i really do think it captures FR better than other photos that have been over exposed which gives the false illusion of a very red color much like Coral Red in the regular E92.

Those look overexposed and pinkish, exactly like Coral Red to me. Hoping that's not the real color.

Nice pics Phase, she looks stunning

The interior shots are not a bad representation of Fox Red, probably just a bit light (over-exposed), as most of mine have been.

The location looks like Port Melbourne to me? I have a place in Elwood.

Hi Phase III
Congratulations. Do Aussie Spec M3's come standard with the Universal Garage Door Opener (located on the rearview mirror if fitted). Its not mentioned on the standard features spec sheet, and its not on the options list either.
Cheers

Thanks so much for posting this. Your car looks great. I'm imagining cleaning and waxing my own as I look at yours. Congrats and take good care of her!

Location was Beacon Cove, Port Melbourne. Just down the road from my place. Light was terrible. Was trying for best contrast with interior but didn't really work. Next shoot planned for station pier (around the corner)...and car will definitely be washed aswell! Couple of pics from last year's shoot attached.

Cheers

Hi Oz,

BMW dealerships in AUS have introduced a vehicle detail package called 'fifth dimension'. It provides options such as exterior paint protection, window tinting, interior upholstery protection and others, which can be purchased with new or used vehicle sales.
The window tinting on my M3 is the darkest 'legal' tint available and more importantly does not contain any metallic composites, which may interfere with radio/mobile reception etc..
I believe that Bib Stillwell and BMW Melbourne are the only BMW dealerships in VIC at this stage with this service, but I may stand corrected on this.

Cheers

Oz,

My mate in Kew bought his 335i vert from a Woolongong BMW Dealer (Dwyers). Best deal he could get. Anyhoo, despite buying it though this dealer he is having it serviced by Stillwells and he had it tinted there. I haven't seen it, but he is a fussy bastard and is none-the-less very happy with it. The issue with metallic tints only applies to the rear window (there are some antennae at the top of it). BMW themselves install metallic windows (the "comfort windscreen") at the factory.
