1st year in Review- 2008 MR E93 M3

Bought the car a year ago in December 2011. Now have the winter blues, especially since it's a vert, so thought I'd reminisce and share some pics from over the past year. The first pic is of my old 335 that I traded in for the m3. Then some random pics including from various events (Northern VA area cars and coffee, Bimmerfest East, MPACT East in Baltimore). The last few are after discovering instagram this past week.
It's been a fun year...thanks for looking!

Wow so sexy. Got to love the MR color. Looking at your car make me have buyer remorse on not getting a E93 M.

Love seeing well modded E93's! Looks great.

Black out the window trim, it makes a big difference.

Thanks a lot Brotha! You helped with just about everything (details, clearbra, wheels, front/rear lip installs, shift knob....). Your car is trying to peek in a few pics.
