New to M3Post - 2011 BMW M3 Melbourne Red

Hello M3Post Northwest!

My name is James and I'm a noobie BMW owner! I just picked up my 2011 BMW M3 Melbourne Red yesterday! I've always been a subie owner, former NASOIC member for 10 years. I just traded my 2007 Subaru STi for this M3 and I've own a 2002 Subaru WRX before that. So AWD, Turbo, and Flat Four cars was all I knew. NA V8's are definitely going to be a learning experience. I think the thing that I am going to miss the most is throwing ::deuces:: to other subies. I've already caught my self doing it to other bimmer's Lol.

I got a BMW to get away from my boy racer phase, and get into a grown man's car. I'm a pretty friendly guy and I'm always down for a cruise or meet. So feel free to shoot me a PM or say Hi. I'm excited to learn more about what these cars are capable of!

Future mods that I'm looking to do is all cosmetic. Lighting and CF parts. Thanks for reading!

Here are a couple of pics. The STi I traded, and the M3 I picked up (instagram pic).

Welcome! There's a small handful of us subie NASIOC converts and it's pretty much unanimous that we are all crazy about the M. I had a highly modded 2010 WRX but got tired of the image it conveyed and it was not enjoyable as a DD. The M3 has it all and then some.

Check out the thread for the Sept 15th North Cascades drive. Enjoy your new ride!

Thumbs up

You aren't far from me in terms of where you live (I am in Maple Valley, not far off of Kent-Kangley). I suggest we do a photo-shoot of your new ride!

I can't agree with you more, the M3 is the COMPLETE package! I'll still chuck deuces to M3's, bringing it over from the subie scene. Sept 15th is my friends wedding but thanks for the heads up.

Sweet I'd be down. I'm about 5 mins away from Lake Meridian. I usually do Real Estate photography and I suck at taking car pics. The pic up to of my subie was the 1 good shot I took, out of 100 bad shots. LOL

ACK! I don't think you can PM yet =/

In for photoshoot once my wheels, exhaust, and lux v3's come in, especially since you work 100 yards from me

Top of the mall parking garage?


To the OP - great color choice, not that many MR M3's around!

It should activate automatically, once you have ...5 posts, I believe?

So true, sir! I had PM'd you a month or so back about meeting for coffee or something. Top of the Crate & Barrel parking lot would be cool. We could also do Gene Coulon Park and see if Kao wants to tag along too.
