Intro

Hi Everyone,

Just saying hello. The lease on my wife's 2009 335i Sedan (Sport/Premium) was up and had someone not rear ended her (and tarnished the Carfax) I for sure would have bought it as it's been a great car. I've been shopping for something new for the last two months and had settled on a 2013 Audi Q5 3.0T. A perfect 2nd car for us since my primary is a heavily modified & regeared 1997 Porsche 993. For some insane reason I stopped at the BMW dealer just to sniff around as I've always coveted the M3 (my last 5 cars have been 911's over a 15 year period both brand new and older air cooled)....and sure enough I caved in and left with a fully loaded 2013 E92 M3 Coupe. Mineral White Metallic on Fox Red, Competition Package,DCT, Nav, Cold, Premium, Apps,Enhanced Sound (wheels with factory black powdercoat).

Needless to say while my 993 is heavily modded I only intend to add exhaust to this one as it will mostly be my wife's car. I do hope to participate in some So CA enthusiasts events if there are any and am excited to be part of this obviously rabid fans of this incredible marque.

How do I post a pic or two from my iPhone?

Thanks 993

A little Porsche Content Sorry

so if anyome is thinking...oh that little old air-cooled 911 is nothing to fear think again it is a wolf in sheeps clothing beleive me (and that's the point). Here is a link to some raw footage of me playing with a new GoPro 3.

If you are to watch the footage be sure to 1st change the quality to full 1080p HD quality (oh and turn it up).

congrats.

i got a 95 993 about half a year ago. i can't drive that thing enough.
may not sound like a lot of power, but that thing is light and small, it surely feels fast. i'm on PSS10.
anyway, enjoy all sweet rides in good health!

Thanks guys (I have PSS9) on mine. I'm absolutely smitten by the M3. It is just astonishing how much stronger this car is in every conceivable way above our 09 335i. The Sport Package on that car seems comical to me now. And to think I almost just leased a new 335...what was I thinking. Meanwhile. I'm already thinking about an exhaust for the M...and as a long time Porsche owner and more than familiar with the slippery slope of modding but BMW is on crack with their $4K M Performance Mufflers WTF!?!

Looks like a fleet of white ones. I like that.

I don't think I have ever seen a white Porsche; it's beautiful.
