Alpine White E90 M3 Content Inside - First Post and First BMW!

Hi guys,

My name is Yo and this is my first ever BMW. I did have an ex-gf that owned an E46 325XI that I absolutely hated working on

Just wanted to share with you all my most recent purchase. I have owned a few cars in my past, mostly Japanese sports cars. Evo IX MR, Honda S2000, Mazda Miata, and still own an FR-S. I co-own a shop called FT-86 SpeedFactory that modifies the FR-S and BRZ, so I like to tinker with things and see what they do on the track.

Anways, just picked up a 2008 E90 BMW M3. It was completely stock. After the first week, I have added iND painted kidney grills, side markers, reflectors, B&G lower springs, and Macht Schnell spacers. These mods should keep me satisfied for a little while....oh, and also, some Diode Dynamics Pure White Angel Eye LEDs.

On to the photos....

After a full detail and the kidney grills







At her first autocross and the install of all other mods.















Also, this is a shameless plug, I created a YouTube channel called "Bar & Track" where we travel to race tracks around the country to review them and the establishments around them. So, hopefully, we can help people have a really good track event at a track they may have never been to. Hope you guys will give it a watch and possibly follow along. I will be featuring the E90 in a future episode later this season

Welcome!

Nice to see another Evo enthusiast on the forum. I owned an 05 Evo 8 and an 08 Evo X. Loved those cars, huge fun on track and on twisty roads but needed a bit more every day civility in the daily drive. My M3 lap times are no where close to the times I used to run in the Evos.

I think we are in the same boat on our thoughts on Evos. The M3 just does pretty much everything else better than the Evo. I'll have to see about the track times when I hit our local road course. I feel the M3 might have an un-fair advantage as I have gotten much more experience in the past couple seasons, but we'll see.

Here is the Evo after I purchased it from Foam!
