Just looked at the pics again, and this definitly helped me make up my mind that Space Grey is the color for me. Perfect balance between silver and black, not too dark, not too light. Plus it shows the CF roof off better and looks great with the tinit.

Question, does Space Grey resemble the E46 Steel Grey? In the pics it looks like it.

Yeah, it's my glock 23, I shoot IPSC, and since Guatemala is kind of a violent city, you never know, I thought no one will see it, forgot to take it out, you're the first one.

Wow, that is kind of funny. I thought the initial comment was a joke then went back and looked at the pics again. Maybe no big deal in your part of the world but a bit shocking for us safe, comfortable, city dwellers in the US. Be safe amigo!

the tint is 3M medium dark, and about the concealed carry license, you have to have one, no tests or anything just being older than 25, and I just turned 27.

Bloody awesome - congrats! So, and forgive my ignorance here, do you have many great roads where you can wind this beauty out? I mean, I don't expect the roads are like the A9 from Nürnberg....

Yeah it the .40 S&W mid size glock, we have some nice roads not like Germany or 5 lane like Italy but there's no speed limit, there's is but no one respects it, one time I was going to the beach in my e46 M3, there's a nice 20km straight road, I was going about 260km/h I felt I was going so fast, just to be passed by a 996 RUF who was going at least 300km/h, there's some nice roads with nice curves but you have to go some 20km away from the city, there's so much traffic now. There are some nice cars here, GT2's, GT3's, M5's, M6's, ZO6, Masseratti's, a couple of RUF's, 360 Modenas, 1 F430, a lot of 911 TT, Carreras of all types, RS4's, S4's, S3's, Astons, E55's, and the list goes on. So it's cool since its pretty much a small city you will come across them soon, I just came across a 360, and I started to get really close to him, I was just waiting for him to floor it, but never happened it was some old guy just cruising.

Not that I open mine often, but I've noticed the bonnet tends not to shut properly of its own accord. I've also noticed that every M3 I've seen on the roads seems to do to the same thing.

I really like the contrast between the CF roof and the color of the car. Perfect combo. The car looks really nice and sounds like a lot of fun. Enjoy that beast!

Hey, if closing it is a problem, drop it from the right height and it will close perfectly everytime. I'd say about 6 or 7 inches or so.
