Thanks, I have mixed feelings about them..they look good from close but theyre a little too bright. I dont know why someone cant come out with a better replacement, my buddy was at my house last night with his new Audi A4 and those LEDs in the headlight are perfect, theyre bright in the day and at night. My problem with the HID angel eyes is they are so bright, there is no definition. You guys will see at the next meet!

Thanks for the sharing the pics - I forgot that you had the fox red interior. Nice to see it clean but your car does not look the same without your 360s. When are you putting them on?


Yes - I love those lights. Gotta get me some.
Same here, it was great to have the top down. What a different car it is!

I actually just dropped off my 360s to be worked on, I'm having the centers re-cleared and Im also having the inners done in the brushed finish and cleared to match to the centers...I will have them back on Friday

Just back from 4 days in NYC (only spotted 2 M3s there, tons of big Benzes and more than a few Maybachs though) and right away spotted a jet black E92 M3 with tint and M5 reps/winter tires right outside Darkhorse Coffee on Queen near Broadview. Not sure if it is someone here but I must say he has good taste in coffee.

OK, so I put my summer on yesterday...looks sweet and feels great. So, I am minding my own business coming home on the 407 doing a reasonable 120 km/h around 2:30 yesterday from Mississauga when a white C63 hope on my tail starts tailgating. So I figure to have some fun with my summers and drop the hammer...I go from 120 -> 248 in a matter of seconds with this guy right on my tail! I had to move aside and he passed me...what's up with that? A little disappointing...not that we kept up, pound for pound...but that he smoked me in top speed. Should that be??

On another note, the ride was quite exhilarating as we drove for about 2-3 minutes at this speed

This is expected the C63 is stronger than the m3 in a straightline without a doubt. (even without a tune) With a tune, you can unleash closer to the engine performance of a SL63 (500+hp) out of the C63 engine as it was detuned for the C-class. The C63 is germany's "muscle car," like a German Camaro or something. You need to get him into the corners, where you will completely own.

Sounds like a blast to be able to take it up to those speeds, but man with the law these days I'd be careful!!! I get very nervous when I see the speed hit 150!

Yeah you won't win any straight line races against a C63 but thats ok IMO... you have a proper sports car and he has the German version of a 5.0 Mustang, I know which one I'd rather have.

Seriously though, the C63 is super nice but I'd still stick with the M3 if I had to do it again.

Thinking about doing the same but I really need the built in version... but don't feel like dropping the $1k US (plus exchange/installation) right now, would rather get rims first!

Similar story happened to me yesterday, where I was playing the role of the
C63AMG guy in my M3...and came across a silver Porsche Turbo S southbound on the 400, was coming back from woodbridge!

i passed him and put my flashers on...and the rest was history

I downshifted to 4th and went from 120->240 in a matter of seconds until i hit the 401 west ramp and slowed down...took that at 160 the m handles well....the porsche guy had to go 401 east,
obviously the turbo kept up...i believe it pushes close to 480 bhp?

but we covered the distance from 400/langstaff area to 401/400 in a matter of seconds...very nice drive...

but yea fantino finds about this...we would both be shaking our heads....

Saw a nice black e92 M3 at the Home Depot (Dufferin & Steeles) Saturday @ around 10:30am.

Saw a grayish C63 @ Dennison & Warden when I was heading home Saturday around 3pm. It was a young asian gentlemen.

Spotted a black E93 on Sunday afternoon just after 1pm (on my way to the meet) at Upper Middle around Grosvenor. At first I thought it was another Oakville member who was heading to the QEW to come to the meet but no luck.
