Hi All

I have just joined after picking up my M last week and wanted to say hi.

I only have this iphone pic from delivery day but look forward to sharing more over time. It's an 08 6spd with arguably the best colour combo - AW & CF roof

Looking forward to being involved in Melbourne events, the Marysville Cruise looked like a great day.

Cheers

Thanks Guys

Absolutely, a number of mods are being planned that I look forward to sharing as they happen.

20" wheels for street use, BBK and a suspension drop are first priority over the next few months.

Congrats on the M3, is it your first BMW? How did you find Doncaster to deal with? Welcome to the forums

This is my first M and second BMW, I had an E53 X5 4 years ago while living on the Gold Coast for a few years, ideal for towing boats and jet skis in comfort.

Doncaster where reasonable to deal with, the colour combo was exactly what I was looking for. Space Grey is very close second for me after seeing the concept car images back in early 07.

Hey mate, Welcome!

Great colour combo! the car looks like the Mineral White colour in that pic, so clean!

We are trying to organise another meet soon. Currently we are all aiming for the first week of March, meet and cruise to the Air show down at Avalon.

Avalaon Air Show cruise would be great, I am there on the Friday but any excuse to drive the M is good one!

The car park can be a dust bowl but maybe all the rain will give it a dust free green landscape for photos.

Are you guys also members of the BMW Club? I don't know much about it, any feedback appreciated.

Last post was from iPhone clearly failed.

I agree a tough choice. For me the C63 engine in the M3 chassis would be ideal. I do like the C63 head light assembly update however, much more aggreesive. I find the GTR too big, too much car, but that's just me, no question they are a weapon.

2012 c63 is looking amazing - smaller v8 twin turbo - ideal for modding with back seats

Thanks for the offer but I will be fitting a new to market kit that I can't say too much about at this point, except my car will be the beta install, 6pis 381mm 48vane fronts and 351mm 36vane 4pis rears.

I will share it here with testing and plenty of photos over the coming months.

Thanks - I checked out your silver grey e46 when I picked up mine - a great example, well done.
