2011 BMW M3  [0.00]
Finally picked up my M3!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So after many years... I was finally able to purchase my dream car. Sunday I picked up a 2011 BMW ZCP M3. Alpine white on black interior. 23k miles, Carbon roof, 6-speed manual, and fully loaded. I am so blessed to be able to finally own an ///M car myself and have already fallen in love

This car won't be excessively modded, but i'm planning on picking up an Eisenmann Race muffler soon and partner it up with a challenge sport pipe. Also want to run KW V3 coilovers eventually. Also small esthetic mods such as painted reflectors, and gloss black side grills, etc. I'll keep you guys posted

Here are a couple cell phone pictures, but I plan on doing a shoot very soon.

Saying hello for the first time











Before the long drive home....



And finally home sweet home



And here are a few pics of my old E46 330ci. She was a fantastic car for many years.





Its great to finally be part of this community

Thank you! Will do. Sourcing some spacers currently, and will probably take care of the small esthetics mods fairly soon. Hoping to pick up the exhaust within the next couple months as well. Didn't realize how loud the actual S65 engine was by itself. But can't wait to have a full system

Congrats. If exhaust, mid pipe, and suspension isn't excessive modding, I want to know what you'd do if you were planning on modding.

Very cool! I came from a TiAg E46 (sedan though) as well! Kinda miss her, but she had to go. Things were starting to fall apart and I really had no interest in keeping up with the maintenance.

So this is what I said in the beginning of my build thread:
"I will keep updating this thread throughout my ownership from start to finish... well there probably won't be a finish. In terms of mods, nothing too crazy. I've already replaced the front reflectors and have replica CF splitters on the way. I'm also going to the OEM exhaust mod (4 pipes version)."

Needless to say, I'm full of it

Haha fair enough. But I almost call those necessities instead of mods :rofl: At least the exhaust portion. I could always slap some 18" volks or FI's, charge it, add like trunk, other aero bits, etc. but thats not really me. haha. I'm a fan of a clean OE look. Which is why I tried keeping my E46 pretty OE.

Haha thanks for not giving me any hope! But its true... i'm trying to convince myself to take it easier this time around. I have a feeling that won't be possible :/ I'm just gonna try and keep my hopes up for now But thanks for the kind words. I will miss the E46 as well. I am lucky though that it is staying within the family so I will see if occasionally
