Glenn you need a X5. Lots of fun on the roads today. Everyone sliding around as the snow packs onto the streets. ( im trying to be optomistic). Thinking about my holiday coming up to Spain.

Want to see your paint color.

Hey Glenn, yeah I traded in my M3 for an X5 Diesel. I'm sad to see it go but I still take the 911 out every once in awhile so it's a nice compromise. hehe. Plus I'm getting back into riding this summer. That'll scratch my itch for speed.

Are you going to get a RR? I love the LR4s and I hear they're getting a bit better for reliability. I hear too many horror stories though.

So how does everyone like the -25 degree forcast for the next 2 weeks.

Environment Canada has also stated the next 3 months will be below the normal average high's until summer.

Looks like the M3 won't make it out of the garage till June haha.

2011 BMW M3  [4.75]
Thought I would finally say Hi to the Edmonton group...finally placed an order for an M3 - my sig has the details! Kudos to BMRLVR for the recommendation for dealership!

Cannot believe I ordered an M3 still - been dreaming of one since seeing M3 CSL!

Holding off on mods is gonna be hard...

Cheers!

In case anyone was wondering, yes the suspension is stiffff when its -25 all day and the car is outside.

Not sure if the Dinan springs help or hurt.

Just crushing blows to the body for the first 10 min on the Whitemud.

When is the sht gonna stop.

How is the X5 diesel doing when it is this cold Jackson? Some buddies here with Chevy diesels are having troubles with the Urea freezing up and getting a CEL.

Glenn, can't speak for Jackson, but we had our diesel X5 up in Grande Prairie in -40C (no windchill) overnight and it started perfectly. Cold, yes, but no problems with throwing a code or anything.

I don't park outside much but when we were hitting our cold spell, the X5 Diesel had no issues starting when parking over night outside for 10-12 hours. It might be different if you parked it for 3 days straight in -30c conditions.

Just did a deal for a 2009 E90 with 9k miles. Jet black on black with dct, tech, premium and the cold weather. Now I just have to go to Arizona to get it.

The papers must indeed be in order. I'll try to provide some play-by-play updates as the pickup and import process moves along.

I just brought a bike in from Arizona. Everything was pretty simple and straight forward. Good luck! If you need any help, let me know.

The car is paid for the and the owner has the title in-hand. He claims to have a recall print out of some sort. The seller and the dealer seem to have a hard time understanding this concept. Will it please the RIV is the question.

As long as you fax RIV something from BMW showing the VIN and no recalls you will be ok. The dealer sevice history shows all of that.

I was hoping it was going to be that easy. Whatever the current owner asked the dealer their was response was nope, talk to BMW Canada. I'll pay for the recall letter if it comes to that but I do have a few more cards to play.

When I imported mine, they required the cluster to be changed out $2400, also took a few weeks to arrive from europe so my car sat at bavaria for about a month.

Side question: Does anyone know a place to have c/f or matte black wrapping done for our cars? I'm thinking about having my roof done (sunroof option installed).
