thanks Sparky... it looks like at this time of the year it's a 50/50... could be a top-down ride all the way, or -20C and a snow storm !! fingers crossed

i am leaning towards Jasper right now as well...

I saw a SSII E90 M3 on Monday morning passing by the Wal-Mart in South Common, not sure if it was one of our fellow M3 post members?

hey guys !
just a heads up, there are still some good cops in Edmonton got pulled over this morning, i was a little bit too excited on the gas pedal on 82 Ave / Sherwood Park Fwy (just after 75 St as it opens up to the freeway)... anyway, there was one slow guy in front of me in the left lane, another slow one a little in front of us on the right lane, so i just hammered down, right lane, back to left, and by the time i went past the cop i was surely doing over 80kph... he didnt have his radar on, but flicked the light at me and followed me... i pulled over on the 50St exit ramp... we had a little chat, i couldnt lie even though i knew he didnt clock me (my STi never went off)... he was nice, asked if i was late for work, i said no (i was actually an hour early today!), asked my license, went back to his cruiser, came back... "i didnt have my radar on you, but i know you were going fast! Take it easy, slow down" "I sure will Officer, thank you !"
he probably could have nailed me for dangerous driving, stunting or whatever else even though i only waived in and out once...
so, if you're reading this Mr. Cop, THANK YOU !
I had a bad feeling this morning, i knew i shouldnt have driven my car today, but what do you do ? oh, and on top of that now it's snowing now

take it easy folks

Anyone?
I did Edmonton to Kelowna maybe 5 years back in January via HWY 16 and Jasper and had no issues. This was a packed IS300 with winter tires. The roads were cleared maybe 95% of the time going there except for a few random areas. Pay close attention to the signs! I read a sign where it more or less read "Beware: Random Snow" or something, 30 seconds later it went from dry pavement to a centimeter or two of snow.

I would just check the forecast before I go. One random road closure due to accident or weather and you're effed.

That was prob me, driving around like a lunatic

I spanked up the Dinan rear toe links and the carbon strut tower brace, 20% off from my Calgary BMW friends

We'll see how it works out with the Stg 1 suspension kit

The Blue one was probably mine!

Good to see some more M3s coming out from winter!

What mods have you done? It was early in the morning, and all I could see was the windows.

The only mods I have is Lux H8 right now. Its a M3 Edition in Monte Carlo Blue, so all the accents of the car are blacked out; grills, side grills, hood thingies (don't know what the name is), exhaust, etc. The tint is pretty dark too..

I am sure I saw your car about a week ago, I was rolling in my wifes Prius in Rutherford and did a double take since I had never seen that blue before on an M3, looked great! (I thought it was Le Mans blue or something like that but I now know)

On another note I think I may be pulling out the M3 next week! I will keep close tabs on the weather. Will be nice to have the beast out again.

^^ I am booked to get the Dinan axle-back exhaust and software tune next tuesday. Nothing crazy, but I had a credit to use at Bavaria and I cant think of anything better than that...though I am open to suggestion.

I am also wondering if anyone knows about what to do with my airfilter/box...I have heard that the best bang for the buck is just an AFE-style drop in? Does anyone in town carry them?

I just bought a filter from AA, the drop in filter is the cheapest route. Any other change is just wasting money on the intake.

The exhaust is good, you'll like it. I have heard and it sounds awesome. The tune is subtle but on a NA car that's all you really get, subtle change

Spotted: White GTR getting speeding ticket on Ellerslie past Summerside

I bet if he was driving his M3 the police wouldve left him alone

Haha, might have been Scott! He has tuned that thing to gain another 100+ hp over stock. That thing will eat pretty much anything in Edmonton! If it was him I will have to sell him on a Escort 9500ci.

There's a dentist that owns one like mine. His office is just north of the Petro-Can.

Bite your tongue!! I will sell my body parts before I sell these cars!

Is that bad?

Haha, no Scott will just sell me more electronics to pay for his escort, I have paid off most of his GTR so far!

I took the M3 out today and wow how I have missed that car. It feels so nice to drive it again. It's like being new all over again.

Waiting.
