2010 6 speed E92 M3 - Interlagos Blue

Hi Guys,

New to the forum, from New Zealand - just picked up this E92 M3 today after being a long time Merc guy - prev car was a W203 C55 AMG.

Spent about 3 months looking for right colour, year, spec - needed to be 6 speed, Interlagos Blue, LCI (hate the old iDrive and new tails are a bonus) and has pretty much every option except extended leather, sunroof and ZCP.

Interior is Palladium Silver with aluminium trim, and only mod so far is 20" Vossen wheels.

Loving the car so far, so much tighter and engaging than the AMG - though not much in it in straight line - didn't really expect it though as the C55 still has 370bhp and a lot more torque (376lb/ft)

No real plans for it, possibly OEM or ACM exhaust mod, and a filter for a bit more induction noise.

Ok, modding has started!

Interior wise have swapped to an F10 M5 shift knob, put in a clutch stop and removed clutch spring - way nicer to drive now!

I have installed a K&N drop in filter for a bit more induction noise.

Exterior wise I have black kidney grilles, black side grilles, black M3 badge, and black chrome 80mm exhaust tips on order. Once the exhaust tips arrive I will be getting OEM 2 pipe mod done at the same time.

I have also ordered a set of Eibach springs, and a set of 20" Avant Garde M359 - 20x9" ET20, and 20x10.5" ET25 plus genuine BMW centre caps and M wheel badges - I will be running my existing 255/30/20 and 275/30/20 Falken FK453s on them.

Interlagos...a classic BMW color!

The grey interiors on the E9Xs are much better looking than the E46s. Wish that interior came with black door panels.

Well it seems like Photobucket has killed this thread like many others - here are some quick pics with the new wheels and personalised plates - got some new 275/30/20 and 245/30/20 Michelin PS4S as well
