Anyone on this board live in Quail Ridge (Irvine)?

I swear there are 5 of us in this community... JZB E93, Silverstone E92, AW E92, etc. Who is on here?

Sorry to the rest of you who don't like in this sq mile

It doesn't surprise me. Google ranks Irvine, CA as the #2 city in the US which searches the term "BMW M3" the most. Surprisingly, the city of RSM ranks #1.

Nice... So you have a white E92? Is it modded? There might be another one. Hey do you ever go to cars and coffee? I've been trying to wake up early enough to get to that but no luck yet.

Yup just got it about a month and a half ago. Pretty much stock right now and I plan to keep it that way for a little while other than some Eibach springs.

Hey before you do that Eibach thing, search some threads on lowering. Based on what I've read, lowering an M3 without increasing suspension travel hurts performance / ride significantly. One option is the Dinan Stage 1 suspension, which addresses the travel issue. It costs a bit more, but apparently it's the way to go.

Thanks for the heads up. Yeah I've read just about everything on lowering and that's really why I picked the Eibach springs. They have the mildest drop and are closest to the factory ride.

Maybe we should have an Irvine meet, there are a TON of M3's around though. I know there are quite a few where I live.

Newark is #7? That doesn't make any sense.

Hey do you (local) guys wanna meet at Starbucks this Saturday and do the Cars and Coffee thing? I feel like I would actually wake up on time if I made a commitment to other humans.

Is there a C & C this weekend? I heard rumor that it was going to be off another upcoming weekend. I know that it was shut down for 2 weeks for lot paving, then it started again last weekend, but I heard it was going to be off an upcoming weekend?

I just checked the Cars and Coffee forum... Nothing indicating it's off. I'm gonna check it out this weekend. If you find out it's off, please let me know... I'd be pissed if I showed up that early for nothing.

Looks like I'll be parking in the visitors lot I can't make next weekend but we should definitely get a frickin hoard of M3's over there early sometime.

I'm here now visiting my cousins. I'll be moving here in about a month so you'll have another AW M3 invading your space.
