Talking New to m3post!

So after a year and half of searching.... juggling between a genII cayman, 997.1turbo, 07 v8vantage, and GTR I stumbled across a M3...

First off I must say when the M3 first came out, I actually bashed it saying how a 335 with a few simple mods can easily out run a M3 and that M3's did not have adequate torque. Thus, I did eventually buy a 335; however, after my first test drive in the M3.... I must say that I am terribly wrong about the M3. The M3 is a beast of its own with the high reving V8 and suspension bits it just an absolutely amazing package!!

So after that first drive, I could not stop thinking about it so two weeks later I walked into the dealer and negotiated for my first M car! A few things happened here and there but fast forward another two weeks, I was ready to take delivery of a 2011 ///M3 Sedan! To top it off, I found the car that is packaged exactly as I would have ordered!

Let me introduce you guys to my toy



2011 ///M3 Sedan
Alpine White with Fox Red interior
M-DCT
MDrive Package
Executive Package
Competition Package
High-Gloss Shadow Line

Head shot, the fender flare is just right!


First mod: BMW Black Grills


More pictures to come as my new modding journey begins! Most importantly, I got to thank my gf as she have always been very supportive when it comes to modding my cars.

Of course my beloved 328xi, it was the first BMW I have ever owned and it will be the one that I will never forget. Please excuse the messy garage.

I finished it off with TE37w/PSS, KW V1, UUC Sway bar F+R, BMS PBX, AFe Stage II intake, Eisenmann Race Exhaust (GTHaus), Sport steering wheel mod, Full 20% tint, and LED dome light

Congrats on the new car!

I am a little confused though. You posted pics of your 328i, and your part out in E90 forums is of a 328i, but you said you had a 335i?

Is the M3 your third BMW?

Nice car man, I kinda wish i picked the DCT as well. See you around in Richmond i guess since you go to Aria.

How long you had the car for, you already have all these goodies installed LOL...

*edit, i just realize the last pic is the car that you traded in for.

Congratulations. You have gone through the same way as mine: 328i - 335xi - M3, ALL E90's.

I am sorry to say I am tired of the look of E90 but yours definitely look great. Please MOD it lol.
