For you carbon fiber lovers out there...

Many of you probably don't know "how much" I love carbon fiber (CF)... considering it's the material contained inside my heart that is literally keeping me alive at this moment, I share a deep fascination and respect for this material... to the point that I collect this stuff, both on my car and not on my car, lol.

I'm looking forward to getting to know what CF options exist for the E92 M3 (love the fact that it already comes with the CF roof), including the front lip, trunklid spoiler and the mirror caps (not sure how I feel about the mirror caps and whether I should go CF on those or leave it melbourne red)...

Anyhow, below is my list along with some pics... I apologize in advance if anyone gets offended by how fanatical I am with collecting this stuff... just try and remember that it's keeping me alive so I have good reasons for loving this material, lol.

Non Automotive black CF stuff (Some stuff were gifts to me, others I bought myself)

LOL... it's all good, my friend. I had posted this in my semi-intro thread, but I'll post it here as well... the features explain how the CF on my car is used to tell my heart story and hopefully inspire people to maintain a healthy heart...

Washington Examiner Newspaper Feature
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/lo...-42690682.html

Eurotuner Magazine Feature
http://www.eurotuner.com/featuredveh...23i/index.html

MTV interviewed me at HIN Chicago back in 2009 but I don't know if my interview ever aired or not... nonetheless, that was a fun interview.

In all honesty, I don't think I'll be doing as much CF stuff with my new M3... if anything it will be a lot more subtle.

I was expecting CF kids too. Great story, and to you for valuing what many of us take for granted.

I hear you... my taste isn't for everyone, but do understand why I love the material so much... this carbon fiber material in my heart has prolonged and improved the quality of my life, and has allowed me to live a happy life with the woman of my dreams and two AMAZING little daughters... I'm so grateful to be alive.

Haha! No CF kids, but my older daughter loves carbon fiber because she knows her daddy is alive because of it.

LOL... not quite, but I'm friends with the site owners there. They actually interviewed me on that site because of my carbon fiber heart... check it out if it's still there.

Over on e46fanatics.com they affectionately referred to me as CF King, and my older daughter has called me Carbon Heart Daddy, lol.
