08 Alpine White E90 M3 (New Owner)

Hey everyone! My name's Puno and I picked up my realistic dream car a few days before New Year's and here she is!

Just a bit of a back story. I came from a W211 E63 AMG that was rear ended and considered a total loss. I also have a 03 S2000 that's been K-swapped and that's forever a work in progress.

Just a few pictures:

E63


S2000


Don't mind the silly face.


Anyways, after the E63 was considered a total loss, my hunt for my dream car began. On December 30th, 2017, I found her. A 6MT Alpine White Slick Top E90 with around 52K and a few goodies.



About a month has passed and there's been few changes. Thanks to Matt and the guys at Auto Couture for taking care of my rod bearings, fluids, and a few extras!

Here she is currently.


So far the only things added were the TE37's and a Rouge Engineering SSK.

Have a few things planned as weather starts to get warmer. I'm extremely happy and still can't believe that I own one of these beasts.

Follow me on IG for other random pictures: @puno_0

I'll be updating this periodically so stay tuned! Please let me know if I made any mistakes. (Still new to doing forum things.)

Good choice in cars

At some point in the future, I'd like to K-swap an SW20 Mr2. I've been thinking about that for a bit now.

Nice!

Is the car lowered? It looks like it is sitting a little lower from the pic on the rack.

I appreciate it!! I've been thinking about powdercoating them white and finding some yellow SL stickers to kinda match my S2000.

Thank you! Gotta love high revving NA cars .

K is the absolute way! You should definitely go for it. Completely changed the feel of my car and I would definitely not go back to the F20. Although I do miss that 9k redline..

Thank you!! Small world!! I've actually been following them since my s2ki days. Cool people and read a lot of their threads haha. S2000's seem to be getting cheaper and more expensive at the same but now's the great time to get one!

Thanks! The car is lowered on H&R springs and I actually got her that way. Although the stance is close to where I want it to be, I still can't wait to get some coilovers on her.

Took a gas station pic since I won't be driving her for awhile due to a storm coming over. If anyone is into photography, the Sony A7S is amaaaaazing in low light. This was shot at 1/400 F3.5 16000 ISO.

Haha yah, I talk to both on the daily in our little s2k chat. Felipe's (bouford) car is super sick, lots of good stuff on it!

But yah, some of the cars are super cheap but the ones we want are super expensive! Haha always the case. One day I'll get back into a s2k but for now it's the M3 project lol

Thank you! Kinda debating on powdercoating them white to have a white on white theme.
