This thread is so dead.. I'm reviving it..

I have been noticing two other ///Ms at the car park I normally use. Today saw the other two parked side by side so took opportunity to do a group shot.. not sure if the owners are on this forum or not.. mine is the E92 on the right.

I have a theory on this.

Whenever I been completely anal about my car, park miles away from others etc I tend to get dings. When I've decided that I don't care, and just let go of the worry of getting dings and park wherever I like I haven't got any. I've had a good run with my last few cars on this front.

As a rule though if I am being careful, I usually try to park next another nice car as I assume that they also care about their car too and are far less inclined to bang their door on mine.

i look for parallel parking spots now, i figure that people cant open their door into you then, people are more careful parallel parking as well, see heaps of people that cant do it give up, then go park on an angle in a normal spot haha

What looked like a black M3 - plates IVI II (if I remmember correctly) heading down plain St next to FMG/Hyatt in East Perth, have seen it a few times here before ...

Very low and loud and I swear it looked wider as well.

Anyone here ? Or Anyone know it ?

Plates are IVI III just like his forum name. Evolve exhaust. No wide body. Lowered car and aggressive wheels makes it look wider😁

Am sure he will be on soon to respond!

i believe the remote controlled valves were removed from the Evolve system so now a permanent 100% loudish V8 symphony. If you had a keen eye a Valentine 1 may also have been spotted.

More info on your headlight mod? Looking at doing something to bring the front up to date - 3/4 DTM's for example. :P

If anyone is doing the headlight mod themselves then you might want a set of these http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1396113

Getting the bumper removed so you can get at the headlights is half the battle. Being willing to stick your headlights in a warm over, that takes some nuts.
