Detroit Auto Show - silverstone shown

Good news for those who are going to the Detroit Auto show. I was looking at the 135i convertible launch pics and there is a Silverstone M3 in the background.

I think the press didnt really care as it was already present in the LA auto show. The public show wont start till the 19th.

Silverstone!

I wonder what color the E90 M3 is then? Last year all M models were white. Perhaps this year they will be more diverse (Z4 M don't even come in Silverstone to my knowledge).

Edit: Looks like the E90 M3 is visible in the 2nd pic obscured by the girl and some dude. I think it too is Silverstone. Can't wait to see these in the flesh. Finally!

The 1 Series cab is good ol' Titanium; M3 is Silverstone.

Here are some pics I found

Check out this picture gallery taken by someone from the audiworld forums.

Nice shots Good to know there's an M3 at this year's NAIAS (And hopefully Chicago autoshow) despite reports of the mishap of the docks being M3's bound for autoshows.

Yup, looks like silverstone alright

We have to rely on Audi fans for photos of the M3?

Silverstone looks good there; typically I'm not a fan. Of course almost anything looks good under the right lighting.

That first pic looks very good. Tough decision between the IB and SSII.

Same here. I'm thinking of booking an appointment with my favorite body shop to have those yellow reflective zits removed, filled-in, and painted. They've already told me that it would be cheaper than getting a new euro bumper and have that painted.
