Talking Just picked up a Space Gray 6MT E92 M3!

After much debate between picking up an E92 M3 or a C6 Z06, I finally came to a decision on which car would be best for me. Although the Z06 is way quicker and has such raw power, I was looking for something that I could drive daily. Being part of this community for the past 10+ months as a vendor with the Strasse Forged Wheels team has not only helped me build great friendships with fellow ///M enthusiasts and owners while building them some awesome wheels, but has also made me fall deeply in love with the M3 so I knew it was the better car to go with. Not to mention the mods on the M3 are endless!

I want to thank Eddie, Gonzalo 'Gonzo', Shane and Giorgio over at Vista BMW for the outstanding customer service and the great deal on this M3! It feels so good to finally be a part of this community not only as a vendor but as a member too!

Anyway, onto the one iPhone pic I took when I was picking her up. I already have some mods on the way!

Great choice, I was a bit skeptical about SG at first but I love it now!

Yeah going from the torque of the Vette to the lack of torque in the M is depressing.
