Happy New Year and My New 2011 M3 E90

Hi all,

Got the M3 a month ago, and here are some pictures. It is a blast driving this car. The M3 handles just so much better than my old car, though I did come from a '98 Prelude. I just hope that the M3 will last as long as my '98 Prelude (drove the Prelude till 252,000KM before trading it in).

I am running the 18" OEM 270M wheels + Michelin Alpin PA3 tires right now (bought them cheap from some rich lawyer guy who used them for 4 months or at least I hope it is cheap).

Anyways enjoy!

Welcome! Not many E90 M3s rolling around town. Lots of E92s of course. Little mods (and some big ones!!!) are easy to hide from the boss, at least for a little while. Depends how good you are at hiding the OEM parts! Wave if you see me around town.

Are you suggesting that I lie to the Boss ...

You're right, lots of E92s and E93s, especially in Richmond...don't see too many E90s around, though I do see Veritable's E90 M3 at Lansdowne alot...

There have been no changes to the E90/92/93 rear bumper since the start of production....... Your bumper is exactly the same as the one on the OP's car!!!

To the OP: Congrats on the new car, I always love to see M3's north of the border! AW is a beautiful color on the E90 M3!

It must be a nice upgrade to the Prelude, although a Prelude is a great car in it's own right. Enjoy your new M3 and welcome!

I have a new AW E90 M3 too! I'll have to look out for you. I am currently running black rims for my winters. See you around maybe as I am in Richmond and Landsdowne a lot too.
