New M3 Coming Soon - E93

Well, it has been a long wait. After the normal research and decision hurdles I finally put my order in March 5th and I pick it up this Friday 9am!

I ordered a E93 (DCT), 19" Wheels with every option possible (no boxes left to select).

Individual Color - Azurite Black with Fox Red Interior (Not extended) and Piano Black Trim.

I have a few small projects planned once I break in the M, working with IND and Dinan. For the exterior (all from IND - thanks for the help Nate) I am replacing the yellow reflectors with Azurite reflectors, replecing the front and side grill with Edition Black and adding the VRS painted front poly lip.

As for performamnce mods, I have decided to work with Dinan locally here (Budds BMW Dinan - Tks Brent and Ted) in the Toronto area. I am set up to add the Underdrive Crankshaft Pulley, High Flow Intake, Free Flow Exhaust and finally the Software Tune. Nothing too major but a good start for my first time doing mods since I was a kid working on my 1972 Ford Capri-build and designed in Germany (many years ago).

As soon as I have it home I will try to take some pictures. I will so some before and after of course. Alan (TTbear) thanks for you help over the last fews months.

Dam dingoes are vicious things. Shot it…all good now. Good catch.

TTBear, I will load some pics on the weekend.

How much did you have to pay for the individual paint color? I'm looking hard at the same setup, but not sure the $5k for individual paint (I've heard this is the cost) is worth it to me....

In Canada I paid $3700 including the piano black trim in the interior. I really don't know what it would cost in the US. For me it is worth it. For you it may or may not be. I have had silver, space grey and jet black over a span of 15 years and I am sick of the same color and seeing the same color everywhere.

Do yourself a favour and stay away from Budd's worst and most expensive dealer in the GTA.
If you live in the Oakville area, Cross Avenue Auto is a authorized Dinan dealer.

Unreal. I looked everywhere for Dinan dealer in the GTA and only Budds came up. Generally I don't like them at all. I did meet the guys for Dinan at Budds and they seem like really good guys but I certainly have no experience with them and I have only heard poor things about Budds.

I will check into Cross AVenue Auto for sure. I live in Streetsville (North West Mississauga) so its not much of haul over there.

Thanks for the heads up,

Engineered Automotive is also a Dinan dealer.
They are located in Concord, near Richmond Hill.

They are a very good shop, on the pricey side, but they do a lot of race work as well.


Sam is the owner of Cross, so he is the person you want to speak with.

Cross avenue is close to you and has the added advantage of being close to public transit (it's beside trafalgar go station)

Wow, what a nice car. Congrats!!!

Have about a three month head start on you with an E93 and just LOVE it.

By the way, smart call on the std FR interior. Perfect balance.
