My Space Gray E92

I picked the M3 up in January and have been loving it a lot! I could say its by far the best driving car I have owned. Coming from 2 G37s (sedan and manual 6MT), this thing just blows them out of the water. Also had an Audi A6 3.0T for 10 months but couldn't deal with the size of it anymore. Ended up looking at M3s and after driving it, I fell in love even more. Ended up buying 2009 Space Gray coupe with all the options minus the 19s (I wanted the 18s, I love how they look), extended leather and rear sunshade. Have done a few modifications on it in the past 5 months that have made it even more enjoyable. Here is the list.
GTS transmission tune
LCI taillight upgrade
M Carbon Fiber spoiler
Japanese Engine software with 204 update
Active Autowerke catback
Macht Schnell testpipes
Swift Springs
Turners 15mm/12.5mm spacers
Coby steering wheel
BMW black kidneys
Verstrabe aluminum paddles
IND color matched corners
LUX H8 160 Angel eyes
Full LED interior
20% tint all around
A bunch of coding

Here are some pictures of the day I got her -



First Autocross




After a few weeks, decided it needs the Active Autowerke exhaust, LCI tails, M Performance spoiler, Swift springs and Turner spacers






















Here are some pictures from Bimmerfest..












Here is the steering wheel, I'm going to make a detailed thread on the Coby wrap.

Glad to see that you are already putting her through the paces, that is truly where this car shines. Coby Wheel does great work

Yessir, this car is way too fun not to properly drive. I'll soon have 18" square EC-7s on her with proper 275s all around, should really help.

Looks good! I've always liked the gunmetal 219M wheels on Space Grey. That wheel looks great, too. Good job!

How do you like the AA cat back? Is it loud enough, or do you think it needs a X-pipe as well? Car looks great by the way, love space gray

Its a bit loud at lower RPMs but with the test pipes it just sounds so intense! I will post a video I recorded of the combination, I love it!

Night and day difference. The G felt like a fat slob compared to the M. I do miss the gas mileage on the G though LOL. M is a thirsty gal
