My "New to me" E92 M3

Whats up all. After being in the M4 scene for the past 3 years I have sold off the F series and come back to the V8 glory. Picked her up about a week ago and had it corrected and coated with Opti Gloss coat.

Specs
2011 E92 M3
Alpine White w/ Extended Black interior
DCT
ZCP
Individual Audio
Cold Pack
Premium Pack 2
21000 original miles
bone stock (i added grills/reflector delete immediately)

Plan to do some light tasteful exterior mods and a blower in the next few months.

Now some eye candy..

Very nice! Needs an Evolve X Pipe though

Seems like a lot of peeps are coming back to the E9X platform.

Have enjoyed our new "old" one for the last few months too.

you picked up a keeper. Looks really clean. Don't let the mod bug ruin your life now

What was the biggest factor dumping the F8x to go to this?

I figured if I was paying double for a car I should love it more and that never happened. The exhaust note was just something I couldn't ever get past even after trying 6 exhaust setups AND going from a standard car to a ZCP. Steering was super numb without much feedback at all. Seats hurt my back vs the E9x.

Other than those things it was a great car and looked amazing. The full leather dash really upped the luxury factor.

Had M4, and back to E90 for me as well. This happens more often that people realize. Now on my 4th E9x.

Your E92 looks super mint. Enjoy it.

Interesting, I was under the impression that the ZCP sound was much improved, no?

Its better but still not good and as soon as you open it up with mods it goes back to the same old grossness.

Looks awesome!

Did you make the tire rack yourself? I should probably get something like that get some wheels off the ground.

E9x is a keeper. I tried to force myself to like the F8x as well, but there's no exhaust that makes it sound good. Congrats on your purchase!
