Looking forward to working with David on my 2nd M3 purchase from Steve Thomas BMW.
Thanks Chmura! Feel free to contact me anytime. Remember I'm an enthusiast first so I love talking about BMW! We'll set you up on the ED for the next generation M.

i love how that vid turned out.....especially that high five part.

i was lucky enough to pick up my M3 this last saturday when they shot that...matter of fact i think i was one of David's first customers.

with all the craziness that you'd think you'd have on your first week at a new place of business, even adding to that a small video shoot...David had the time to take me out for a a drive in my new M and show me the ropes, answer any questions i had and just give me the general feeling that he was there anytime i needed him. that the sale didn't end when i left the lot.

actually the whole family at STBMW made my buying experience a good one. from Francesca whole placed my order ( gawd...how patient she was with me!) to Kwinn and Tony that answered my questions and checked the status of my vehicle at the VPC before my car got there....and, of course, GOLFRR...this guy is always available to answer you questions and concerns. he even hooked me up with vendors that never quite got back to me when i was looking for a shop to handle my mod needs.

i've bought close to 20 cars and have plenty of experiences with dealers. some good, most were sub par....i really never trust dealers. still don't. but my experience with STBMW has been beyond what i've had with any dealer. lot of sales people say they they are there to build a relationship with you....in my 5 1/2 months dealing with them, i know they mean it.

i'm picking up a 5 series next year and want to do EU. you can bet it's with David, Golfrr and STBMW.

Awesome news! Congratulations David- well deserved and I know the best is ahead for you. Can't believe it's been 3 years since I ordered my car from you and what a wonderful experience it was. You arranged my European Delivery perfectly and the pick up of the car as well. This is certainly a dream team for the BMW community.

Hyperjack, you actually were my first customer on my first day! What a way to start off, Frozen Grey on Rust Brown M3
...and not to mention I had a great time on the drive and answering your questions despite the jet lag. I truly love what I do so I was just as excited as you to meet up. The adrenaline of being here kept me going!

If you have time to make it back on the 16th for our customer appreciation event it would be great. It's being held at the country club we drove by before you experienced the tremendous exhaust note on the 101!

Always at your service,

David M Aviles

Fsarc!! How's NJ? I can't believe it's been that long either wow! I'm sure you're still loving your Le Mans Coupe. That was probably the first one delivered with all the carbon accessories you ordered. What a beauty!

Yeah, I remember you had a really tight schedule. Fly in, sign, and head out lol. But we got it done and I'm happy we were able to meet in person. Don't worry about the next one. I can still hook you up and deliver to the east coast!

All the best,

David M Aviles

Hyperjack, your car looks awesome! Jimmy told me that it was coming in and couldn't believe it - wanted to get that combo but missed the boat. Post up some more pics in another thread.

thanks, signes!

having never seen the combo before , it was kind of a guess as to how it would turn out. i was nervous until i actually saw it.

i'll have boat loads more pics to post. the car is spending a little time with EAS and maybe a week or so after i get her back i'll be shooting extensive pics.

they are. it belongs to David Aviles, the subject of this thread. BMW did him a solid of giving either the only, or one of four, E90 M3s in Fire Orange.

maybe he'll stop by, or GOLFFRR can clear that up....but either way it's a very rare color on an E90.

Thanks, didn't mean to overlook your beautiful, unique car. : )

Upon searching there are a few oem fire orange sedans around. One in Hawaii, one was for sale in Florida last year. And I guess here's another. I'm possibly looking for a nice e90 but they've held their value a little too well : )

Good luck with the new ride!

haha...thanks. but, no worries. not many looks can show up Fire Orange.

that was actually my first choice in color. tried nailing down a 6mt LRP edition, and when that didn't work....tried special ordering it, but was denied by BMWNA.

We sold 2 FO e90m3 that's all I know and David has one. I'm sure there might be one or two more.

Hypers car though is super rare combo. Me personally have never seen a frozen grey with Indiv rust brown interior ever
