Sparkling Graphite E90 M3

Hey guys just wanted to jump in here to say hello and introduce you to my 'new to me' E90 M3 that I picked up a few months ago. Coming from a couple of E46's this is a nice change of pace. Being around so many over the years at ACM I saw how these were long term and realized it was a great choice to go with for the power, comfort, and money as a daily driver. No offense to you E92 guys, but the coupe was completely off the table. Had to have four doors and three pedals and was lucky enough to find this.

Some of the Specs:
Sparkling Graphite
Extended Fox Red
6MT
Comfort Access
Ohlins R/T Coil overs
Kinesis K28 19" (original faces brushed, with smoke tinted clear, custom machined center caps, and rebarreled to 9.5" & 11" by Mark @TheeDeported)
LCI Trunk wingless with Euro Ambers
ACM Exhaust mod (in some photos)
Full Highflow catted Gintani custom exhaust with CF tips

Love it! What tips are on the OEM exhaust mod? They look meaty to match the sound

It's an absolute beauty!

Gotta agree when I jump to the E9x M platform it will be an E90. I'm tired of two doors.

Enjoy!

Magna Flow 3.5" Dual wall tips. Yeah I strongly dislike the stock rolled wall tips.

Thanks Bob! Hold it down for us back home. Everyone that came by the shop always stopped to check your car out and rightfully so!

They're OEM off of Sal's F80. Was testing out some new spacers, so I slapped em on for a few days.

Best. E90. Ever

Team Stock Kidney Grilles ftw

On a serious, if you are ever in South Carolina, let me know. We'll have to go out for a photoshoot, it'd be mind blowing.
