Getting PSS put on mine as soon as we're sure to be clear of any ice/snow!

Took the money I collected on our street for the Heart & Stroke Foundation to there office on the north end of town. The roads where nice and dry after the last wet snowfall so naturally I took the M3

Had plans to stop by the Porsche dealership on the way home, changed my mind the good little fellow gave me a slap then spoke to me saying "Not yet Rolf, you are still having too much fun with this M3"

So I stopped for doggie poop bags instead (was running low) naturally I took the long way home along the twisties on the outskirts of town.

Gave it a bath

Hand washed the car and detailed the rims. Gave a buddy a ride in it for his first time in an M3. And of course stared at it.

Of course, I could be suffering from a placebo effect, but . . .

In "sporty" mode (S5, M Engine POWER enabled), I don't really notice anything. In "regular" mode (D4, M Engine POWER disabled), it is noticeably more responsive.

I don't know that I would use >91 all of the time, but it should be fun once in a while; going on a drive up through Napa tomorrow . . .

What have I done to my M3 today ?

Had a PPI done, test drove, put the title in my name, drove it home, washed it and put it away in the garage !

Soon... ZCP wheels, painted reflectors, red laminex on the 08 tail lights.. and black grills.

A few days ago I was at a crossroad (red light), the car in front of me stood a little bit too far forward. Suddenly, the driver came to mind to drive back a bit. I thought I wasn't seeing properly. ... and boom! It was an SUV and the spare wheel damaged the hood and the bumper. The woman () who had driven the car was very sorry and apologized several times.




However, car was repaired and I've it picked up on Friday (so, it's actually not a story from today) and it looks at it should again.

Had to go to the north end of town yesterday afternoon. The roads are still dry and no signs of new snow so I took my M3. On the way back home I took the roads on the outskirts of town. With no traffic at all I let her rip ... oh boy did she sound good at the red line What a fun machine.

Once home my wife asks "Why the big smile on your face? what have you done" I simply said

"Oh hun life is just great here you go your altered jacket that you you purchased last week"

A friend gave me his Melbourne Red mirror caps and hood vent surrounds to match my red wheels. I'm a wannabe GT3 RS now...
