Omaha/Lincoln, NE

I am a new member of the forum as I placed an order for a 2011 E92 this week. I reside in Omaha and am looking for other M3 owners in the Omaha/Lincoln area. Are there some out there?

Not too many! I just turned in my 2007 335 coupe so I am not a member of the BMW family at this point but I loved the car.

I have been a member of the E90POST Forum for quite a while and the Omaha activity here is minimal.

However, I live in northwest Omaha and have seen a new 135i a couple of times recently.

Good luck with the car, I nearly leased a 2010 M3 but got a faantastic deal on my Porsche - I will be getting it out of storage in the next coupe of weeks. It has been quite a winter!

Did you get the car from Markel? Report back when it comes in.

You can't go wrong with a cayman s, nice cars! I traded my 2008 corvette for the M3 so right now I am without a "fun car" until June when the M3 arrives. I tried Markel but they weren't competitive so I ended up getting a good deal at Husker BMW in Lincoln. Do you ever attend cars and coffee at Hy-Vee on 156th and Maple?

A guy I work with has a 1992 Corvette and I believe he attends the cars and coffee. I have never made it there. I didn't know if my BMW would fit in with the other cars there.

Too bad about Markel; the guys there seem pretty nice. I leased my 335i coupe from them but it took everything I had to finally come to an agreement.

The 2009 Cayman S is nice - Handles great and has pretty good acceleration. It does not have the straight line power of my 335i (it had a JB3 tune) but the PDK transmission is very good.

Take care,

Dave

Cool! What color is your car? My new M3 should arrive in the next 10 days....it's been a long wait. I don't see too many 08 or new M3's running around Omaha, I think I recall seeing a e90 on 168th and pacific a few weeks ago but that's about it.

Omaha M3s

I have an e90 SSII with stock 19s. I live near 168th and Pacific so it could have been me you saw. I know of a few E9x M3s in town. A black coupe, a grey coupe (with winters on it) and a white coupe. I was told there is another SSII sedan in town like mine, but i have not seen it. I have also seen a red e90 in Lincoln. Markel just delivered a red e90 to a woman in Sioux City.

Checking in from W. Iowa

I bought from Markel and had a great experience!
I have an '09 Melbourne Red M3. Had a '07 335i and got the BMW bug. Great cars.
I live and work in Iowa but spend most weekends in Omaha.
Glad we have some action on here!

I am in Papillion! '09 e92 M3 white with some mods.
Try to be on the Mid America Motorplex track as much as possible.
I'll be out there tomorrow too!

If someone is interested I have an extra set of BFG-R1 tires on TR Motorsport rims to try out! (also brake pads for track)

There used to be some guys with M3s in the local BMW club. (http://www.bmwccamvc.org/). I believe they have a Yahoo mailing list where most of the discussions takes place.

Also thought there was a local euro club. But have never been to one of their meets.

Just ordered a 2012 e92 M3 - will be delivered around late March! I also currently have a 2007 335i that I'm selling if anyone is interested. I'll be back in the States around the same time my car is delivered (hopefully!), so I'd be up for a meet. I'll check back in then. Here's the link to my car --> http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=585114

Hey guys- aspiring (see: next summer-ish) e92 M3 owner.

We have an Omaha community we are trying to develop a little bit more and we would LOVE to see some M3s out for our meets.

If you have Facebook, you can find us at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Aksar...01187306565620


Otherwise, we mostly hang out on the E90 3-series forum in the Midwest Section.

We have done meets, barbeques, cruises, etc and have about 6-8 '06+ BMWs that hang out with us.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Pretty sure I saw your car parked at the building I was living in this last summer. Lofts at 15th?
