i'm not inclined to change the suspension of this car, camber or not, given the accolades the car has been given for lack of body roll. if my trade off is steering feel or ride quality, i won't be sacrificing ride quality.

Actually, based on pics, I think Fox Red would also look good. It is not a bright red like on the regular 3 series. Its more of a brownish red. I think it is brown enough so that it would actually look good with Interlagos, similar to how Terra leather looks good with Montego on the regular 3 series. Granted it is definitely more red than Terra is, but I still think it will look good against the blue.

Maybe, but you would need to see it IRL, I take it you have?

I did, and would say that Bamboo is more Brown than Fox.

I'm in between Black or Fox Red. I used to have Avus Blue/Black.

we'll see. Good point, need to see IRL.

Epacy requested full front dash pics, which southlight had a good comparison.

Thanks

No I haven't seen in in person - that's why I said "based on pics".

I thought Bamboo was more of a tan color? True, tan is just a light version of brown.

All I am saying is that Fox Red appears to look a lot closer to Terra than it does Coral Red. Based on this, I think it could look good with Blue.

From the most recent pics I have to say it looks more like Auburn from the
E60. If you liked Auburn you'll like Fox.......

Congrats, DC!

IB is gorgeous, looks particularly nice in the rain- great choice

I guess it's time to see the new M3's on the road. Congrats man, love the car. One complaint though. Knowing that people have waited so long for the car, you should have put like 20 pictures up!!!

More pics ....

First off, some responses (without quotes, I'm pushed for time). XR2 race was a disaster at the weekend. Rubbish qualifying, started 12th, got a great start and made it to 6th by the end of the first lap only to throw it all away going down Duffus on 2nd lap. Outbraked myself, way too hot and lost it into the tyre wall big time. Car is wrecked and will need major bodywork to get back out again, so won't be racing again till next year now

I'll post some more detailed observations on the driving experience once I get the car run in. And yes, Scotland is definitely the place to be!!

Ok, enough of my waffling, here are the pics ....
