Where are you e9x Bay Area Owners???

Funny, for all I know, I'm the only e92M3 owner in fricken the Bay Area(sarcasm); especially in SG.

All I see are my old e46M3 locals looking at me drive and you can see their minds work and possibly think, "what's that sound, hmm bumper, mirrors, hood, roof....335.....wait, shit the new M3."

Where are you guys?

I'm in SF and commute to Palo Alto during the week. I have not seen any others on the road either. It's nice to have a car that is still rare. Went to Weatherford BMW today and they had two E92 M3's - one in Silverstone and one in Space Grey. They also have an AW E90. They were still asking for 10K markup. Perhaps there aren't more on the road because the dealers are sticking to their high mark-ups (in addition to the economy, of course)?

I have to say, the Space Grey looks pretty good - it's a toss-up for me as to whether I like my AW or that better.

I know Jinxter is in the area too - was hoping to meet up with him last weekend to check out the painted reflectors he has, but schedule didn't work out.

You and Jinxter are the only ones I know on this forum that are in the Bay Area.

Ya, i think it's just us three on the forum at least. AW and SG are both great colors. Not sure if you've seen these, but here are a few snaps of mine from this past sunday.

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...=133745&page=2

If you guys would like to meet up, by all means let me know. Oh ya, I installed my painted reflectors last night, they look much better.

Do you any of you guys belong to the BMW CCA Golden Gate Chapter? If so, there are a few track events coming up. One at Thunder Hill and the other at Laguna Seca.

Either way, it would be nice to all meet up.

Believe only $40 bucks per year and you get Roundel, additional mags, and discounts on parts/cars at local dealers.

Driving events cost aroun $500 for the weekend, but they are fricken awesome.

Edit: Shit, I mispoke, Laguna Seca is in June.

Im here in the SF bay area - in SF a lot since my fiancee lives there. We'll definitely have to figure out some time to meet up.

if there are any photographers in the area we could schedule a shoot somewhere.

thanks Luckystrike for the great tint job - can't recommend Omega enough! Will post pics as soon as i get my reflectors from Brad at Evosport.

Funny, I was thinking of revisiting the car clinic again as well, since this car is so different. Would be fun to take it on the skip pad.

I'll check their calendar for the next scheduled clinic

I got mine last week but it has been at the Bra place since Monday.
Once I get it back you will have another to look out for, in Spark. Graphite.
BTW: luckistryke is doing my bra and tint.

Yeah it is, but he was nice enough to squeeze me into his schedule and work on the car at night so that I can drive it.
Call me anal but I did not even want to drive it until the Bra was on. Hence it has 25 miles
