Yes sir, that was my M3
I didnt do that well, I did a couple of runs at high 11's and then several runs at low 12's, I couldnt use the launch control, after installing the S/C the launch control is not engaging, I am trying to solve this issue with ESS
I was loosing almost 1 second on the starting roll, with the launch control I may be able to run at lows 11's or even high 10's, at least I was faster than the 2 M5 that were there, I think they couldnt make less than 12's
see attached one of the 2 high 11's I did (11.95/120 mph)
Attached Images

Edu...I thought you were having some issues. Once rolling you could see the car trying to stretch its legs. Better starts would have easily knocked off a second+. GT4 sound is killer!

Trevor..thanks for the rolling shot! I couldn't help myself with all that clear road ahead of me and had to let the dog eat. LOL!

Thanks Jason, the GT4 sounds awesome, I love it!
I am waiting for a new set of HRE wheels that should come in shortly, just a few more weeks and the waiting will be over...., I will post some pics when installed
Lets hope there is a M3 meet up soon!

forgot to post this youtube video clip of a run of my car with a GTR at the PBI event, sorry for the low quality and poor angle of view, it was taken with an iphone, the sound of the akra GT4 is awesome:
