Saw an M3 this morning in RI while in my IS-F

Saw an M3 this morning going 295 North in Rhode Island. Anyone here? Makes me want one I love the look of the coupe. If you're on this board we'll have to meet up sometime for a photo shoot If I wasn't driving I'd love to take a rolling shot of the M3. Cheers.

Hah.. I don't think so. What's wrong with you. It's a compliment to all you M3 owners out there that I'm flattered by the car.

NGL... faris wasnt talking about you. lol

By the way... Is that a REAL pic of the ISF exhaust? The bottom hole is a fake and just for looks?

** edit** ok I see the second muffler behind the had (I think) but the tips are not connected ?? lol

The exhaust is not connected to the cosmetic rear extender. There's nothing wrong with that. I think the new Ferrari California does the same thing...

Well anyways, it was great to finally see one on the road around here. The car that I saw this morning was pretty quick. The driver was pretty friendly and we waved as we passed each other. I was a bit hesitant to follow too close because up in the Northeast was have sand on the ground. I could hear the sound of little pebbles hitting the front of my car so I backed off a bit. Any other M3 members from RI?

I saw an IS-F parked outside of the 710 garage at Boston Medical Center every day in the summer. It's sorta purple blue color like my Interlagos Blue. It actually looks better in person than pictures.

It has nothing to do with sarcasm - just you being, 19. Your humor is off the hook too.

Relax, it's called sarcasm. I love your humor.

This is why we got such a bad rep with the OP.... The owner of the ISF was trying to say hey and he gets the shoulder rub???? We need to be nicer than this...

Relax, it's called sarcasm. I love your humor.
I'm sorry, do I know you? perhaps you looked in the mirror and saw yourself at 19. Who exactly is making "bmw owners" look bad with your retarded reply? Been a member here for a few years and never really had issues with anyone, heck I barely post, and yet you come in here, new and all, and throw some insults? grow up.



to the OP, sorry the post wasn't found humorous. Love the car btw... and yes, I agree they look much sharper in person than in pics as well. Moving on.

Thanks guys. I realize that occasionally we get a mixed crowd and certainly different opinions. The only reason I mentioned IS-F was because I was curious if the owner of the M3 was on this board.

It's funny how your buttons can be pushed so easily when all I did was practically repeat, verbatim, what you said the OP. You throw an insult at me and say my reply is retarded, yet tell me to grow up. You being seasoned on this forum doesn't give you street credibility. Scheesh, rough crowd.

IS-F is a little different than all of your examples.

But very similar exhaust concept.

Wow congratulations Mike! You even got the color I would have chosen if I went with the M3. Keeping your 350Z? We should meet up sometime! By the way you're the one who got me into photography. It's funny when you think back and remember your photographs are the ones that influenced me to even buy a DSLR. Currently I'm shooting with a Nikon D300 and love it!

Here's my winter snow tire setup. Running 19" Blizzak LM-25. Works great!

I wouldnt buy an IS-F but I have to admit it looks better in black for some reason! and I love the photography work. You could have done the car more justice than Lexus did in their official photos

I also like the winter setup, thanks for posting.
