Frozen Gray e93 at the Welt

While I was doing my ED on 8/6, I saw someone's FG e93. Does this belong to anyone online?

People at the Welt told me keeping it clean is difficult.

As you can see, bright 18's would look terrible on the FG - so BMW must still use the gunmetal on the FG.

Nice car. Is that an ED car? I can't remember what ED plates look like.

I was told it was a customer's car for ED.

I just noticed in this picture two people are now sitting in front of the FG e93. Maybe it belongs to them.

Look in the upper right corner of the image.

But is it ED? I am wondering if this is bound for the US. It would be the first FG M3 in the US I am aware of that is not one of the 30 special edition models.

Not trying to grill you here, BTW.

That's not a US bound car as it doesn't have Zoll plates on it.

No Grilling taken

I don't know if you have ever done ED before, but this area of the Welt is only accessible by customers doing ED.

Cool. I've done it, but pre-Welt era.

Good catch. Definitely not US bound. Could be Canadian bound. Or, any other country that offers any sort of Welt Delivery I guess.

Any European customer can take delivery at the Welt. It just costs them extra to do so. It is not a US bound car because they are not temporary plates like we get. The orange band at the right has the expiration date on it. Yours is September 1st.

The E93 looks great in FG.

I didn't read the part about US bound. I thought the question was weather the car was for a customer or not.

For some reason that looks so much better to me on the E93 than the other two chassis.

The second person appears to have a very impressive fro.
