Hey Footie, nice color combination on your M!

It amazes me how the SSII changes colors. I was parked outside in bright sunlight the other day at the baseball field and my Dad couldn't find the car because he said all he saw was a blue one. Of course, it was the SSII. Gotta love it.

Sorry, can't do it tonight. I'm off to Worcester to stay over for a double header, indoor baseball game tomorrow.

Let's try it for another time.

Good luck with your game! Park safe in Worcester. I'm weary of leaving my car there especially at night.

This picture was taken just before I swapped back to my summer wheels. Had snow tires in this pic.

Hopefully we will be able to get some nice M3 shots with E92-wolf's sweet ride. The image is a result of the D300 and post processing. I use Apple Aperture.

Awesome pics once again!

Well, I'm back from Worcester and made it out unscathed. I'm up for meeting this week, if you want. The guy from the wheel shop never returned my call about getting the 19"s done in black so I might just get them put on and we can do some shots of the M.

Let me know if you want to get together for a shoot.

Steve I should be available Saturday morning. Hopefully it's nice out. Here are a few I took tonight at a mall garage. Any ideas where you want to shoot the M3?

Beautiful, once again.

Unfortunately, the weekend is totally booked for me with a 2 day baseball tournament that goes from 8-6 both days and we have a state championship gymnastics meet on top of that.

I'm open to ideas on the location when we can actually coordinate a meeting.

possible solution

yes, it's appears to be for show, like many cars with hood scoops, brake vents, etc.

btw, in real life you can't put your hand through like that. that was a pre-production vehicle. and they're not really exhaust tips... it's called diffusers and it basically protects the bumper from heat damage, reduces backpressure, and reduces backflow for speeds >100mph which eliminates rear end lift, which was needed with a top speed of 170mph.

but borla finally released a cat back system with 4 outlets (instead of the oem of 2) for the stock tips, the only issue is that borla had fitment issues with the is350's - not sure if many isf's owners will jump on it.

Someone needs to make a traditional quad setup. Not that stacked crap. IS-F and the new Ferrari-for-women(aka California) has them. Can't stand them.

Wolf-e92, saw 2 M3's today on the road. Saw a white one in the morning going down Comstock Parkway and this evening on 95 South. I took a few more photos today. Too bad tomorrow is raining or we could do a shoot or something. I should be around next week as well. PM me when you have time. I know you're pretty busy yourself especially driving up to Burlington.

beautiful car ... Lexus should have really gone to LEDs for the taillights. That's the only suggestion I would have.

Oh wow. No wonder I saw you that morning. I'm surprised I haven't run into you more than once. Want to do something after work on Thursday? We should do a shoot at Goddard park in Warwick.

Either you always get me when I have baseball or I always have baseball. I'm booked Thursday and Friday nights with baseball and every Sat and Sun between 8 and 3. Mondays and Tuesdays are best or late afternoons on the weekends.

I was actually buying a dark grey IS-F when I got here but when I landed in Canada it had just been sold and they couldn't find the spec/colour I wanted without ordering in and waiting. Then I spotted my dark grey M3 coupe in their sister garage and all was well again.
The IS-F in the right colour looks fantastic in the flesh. Pictures do it no justice. Although those pictures come pretty close. Nice one.
