Are your E92 a trackingable car as well? can you share us what's the mods you have done on your E92?

Yeah, but I don't use it that often, except for right now while my dedicated car is down. And I only use it for lead/follow coaching, not just for fun.

As far as mods it's pretty light compared to the E46:

* MCS single adjustable coil overs
* Ground Control Camber Plates
* H&R Front Sway Bar
* Euro GTS DCT tune
* Apex FL-5 18x10.5 wheels

That's it!

Hello! Haven't got to drive the M3 much in months, it is my daily (was? ). Tanzanite Blue '13 E92, pretty stock w/ MPE, mostly around the Bethany area. Haven't seen much E9X M3s around. Older picture, don't have a newer one to share. Rod bearings done a few months ago AR Auto FTW.

I'm in Seattle and recently got rid of my E93 M3. If anyone knows of someone selling an E90 M3 with a DCT let me know (just PM me) - would settle for any color, other than Jet Black, as long as there are zero exterior modifications, and as long as it has less than 75k miles on it. I won't entertain any car that has been bought from Kelly MotorCars in Hatfield, PA

As far as mods it's pretty light compared to the E46:

* MCS single adjustable coil overs
* Ground Control Camber Plates
* H&R Front Sway Bar
* Euro GTS DCT tune
* Apex FL-5 18x10.5 wheels

That's it!
Right now, my E92 is kind of ready to be a novice track car... (Included the mods from the previous owner and mines)

* Bilstien B8 Shocks/Struts and Swift Spec R strings.
* Ground Control CC plates
* Alpine tune and GTS tune.
* ACM modded exhaust w/ Magnaflow 90mm tips
* ZCP Wheels, MICHELIN PILOT SPORT 4S, 255R19 front, 275R19 rear.
* Stoptech ST60 Front and ST40 rear with street pads.


I may need a set of 18 inch wheel of Apex to use as a dedicated tracking wheel. What's your spec for 18" wheels and tires?

On my E92 I run 18x10 ET25 with 12/15mm spacers. -2.5 camber up front.

On my E46 I run 18x10.5 ET25 with -4.0 camber up front. E46 handles better

So great weather today and a lot of sun. Been PCC tennis court afternoon but not driving m3.
This color is so fantastic under the sunny day!

A little bit of external and internal love for the car this past week or so. The bumpers on the car were in rough shape when I got it. Both had been resprayed and the paint was not great, front cover had scrapes and holes for the plate. Bit the bullet and got new bumper covers (OEM euro up front) and had them sprayed and installed them myself. At the same time finished the paint correction on the rest of the car (had the fenders/doors/rear quarter left). Jerez black does make everything easier to match, and I think it came out great. Also had the rod bearings and motor mounts replaced. Bearings weren't in the worst shape for 70,000 miles, but happy to have it done. You really don't know until you're in there.

Bumper replacement in process


Rear shot with the cherry blossom action


No more reflectors, headlight washers, or holes/scrapes/trash paint


It's what's on inside that counts

Cheery Blossoms are beautiful, car too.

Where did you get your paint correction done or did you do it yourself?

Looking good.

Just did it myself. I don't have the craziest setup, but I feel like it's enough to get me 85-90% of the way there. I was really happy with how this turned out, but we'll see how it holds up. Might eventually do the whole professional correction and ceramic coating at some point...

^^ dang, Tanzanite Blue? I didn't realize this color was available (via the individual program) on the E9x. Quote a few F8x cars in this color.

Just looked it up, only 2 E92's painted this color (no E90s or E93s). Rare car, looks awesome!

LOL, totally agree. I've done a road trip down to CA and brought along 8 ft hedge trimmers to help a disabled friend on his property. Also have transported 10 foot PEX pipe home from Lowes.
