New owner 09 M3 coupe.

I finally bought my e92 M3. Had a e46 M3 before, then went with S5 and now back with M.

It is 09 Jerez Black on extended Fox red interior with only 2800 miles. DCT, tech, cold weather and premium package. Had dealer replace oil as it was old time wise, not mileage.

Only mods so far are tinted windows, alpine angel eyes, led corner lights. I also got the front lip and the diffuser from a friend... I installed it today... It's definetelly a copy of vorsteiner... But it's polyurethane or some kind of flexible plastic.

I don't know weather to keep the lip and diffuser or remove it. I can't justify spending over 800$ on authentic lip... So this was just a trial run test.

Pics are up. They are iPhone pictures so quality isn't that great... First picture is when i bought it, and got the windows tinted... rest are today... The lip is off as of right now... Diffuser is still on.

Congrats. How did your E46M compare to the S5 and how does the S5 compare to the E90M?

Well, I loved my old M3.. It had bunch of Dinan upgrades and as far as SMG I loved it. I liked how the way SMG shifted gears almost sounded like manual... It takes that "breath" haha.

S5 was perfect touring car... Beautiful inside and out.. But it was just slow for me. Plus, as far as modifications... There were none. I hate that. I like to mod my cars and do a special "touch". ;-)

E92 M3... Perfect so far. I'm disappointed with the DCT because it's almost like automatic.. I wish it was more like SMG... Noisy haha ;-)

You are the first person I've heard to say they are "disappointed" with dct. Either you are joking or you don't know how to drive it right yet

I just prefer old SMG over the new one... That's all. I drove it in the 6th setting with everything on... It's awesome, however as far as automatic mode, i wish it would delay half a second when changing gears.

So today I installed the LED turn signal lights PY24 or something like that... And i was hoping it would get rid of Amber turn signal light... Well, one is left... Anyone know how to get rid of this tiny little amber light?
