Is this your M3? (Shelly BMW 5-6)

I feel odd posting a picture I took myself of someone else's car, but I saw this at the dealership today (Shelly BMW) and holy shit is it beautiful. I don't think I've seen a crimson E90 before, which probably has everything to do with it, but the wheels are gorgeous too. Makes me want to get a set and wrap my roof black.

I wish I had a better shot of the wheels, I thought I'd gotten them but I couldn't see my screen well and turns out I didn't. If the owner sees this, what are they?

Ahh success! There are a few reasons I'll probably never get an M3 even if cost isn't a problem, but that's still pretty much my new dream car, man. Just gorgeous. Time to see if those rims come in 225/17 :P

Is that really metallic? I guess I didn't get a good close up look. Maybe that's why it's so striking.

It is Melbourne Red, but the color hasn't even remained ///M exclusive let alone M3 exclusive.

What size wheels are you running, 18 x 10"? I was thinking of 18 x 9.5" square. only 19.1 lbs is nice and they look great too.

What's up....hey don't you have a blower? I'm set on never taking mine to the dealer so I'm curious if you were just there for parts/maintenance or trying to get some warranty work done. Thx.

What's up bud yeah I do. I have a few guys I trust over there and I was in for just routine stuff. Trust me, I'm paranoid as hell but these guys know that and are super chill. I've never had to worry about them accidentally flashing the car or joy riding or anything crazy. If you need anything or a recommendation I for sure can set you up over there

This is true, but it also helps to be in Southern California as well.

Wow! Congrats on the new car Your going to love it. Feels light years ahead of the E46 IMO, though both are great in their own right. I always preferred the stock clear corners to the depo smoked ones on LSB, compliments the bright feeling the light blue gives off. You planning on keeping both?
