^ true, I always find the E92 hard to photograph. Looks nice in person but the subtle curvatures don't translate in pics, for example, there's a compound concave to convex figuring in the shoulder line from fender to the C pillar and it needs to catch light in order to see it (most evident right below the rearview mirror), but in a photo you'd miss out on the complex curving of the doors below the shoulder. Both of those motifs are new, from E9X and on. BMW C pillars...
I had to drive a visitor back to airport the other day and we were way late, just gambling on his plane ticket at that point - super smooth empty highway and the speed limit was 100kph - I did 200 most of the way. I think that's about a buck twenty five in mph but for the few cars I'd pass it seemed like they were just sitting still in the right lane. haha. Over here they have actual signs warning you of when the speed the traps are coming up, by distance, giving you...
That's one of the reasons why I went with the E92; it seemed most reliable of anything I considered. I got ZCP wheels on, had tint removed, OEM muffler got hollowed; LCI tails and spacers are on order, and I am gonna do Pro-Kits. Done after that for the most part.
wooo mister fancy. My car has an overly hot heating system, a DOS-like OS, and a Playstation One-like transmission.... and a center console for my Oiiver Peoples. Possible upgrade to Oliver Goldsmiths thanks to this thread.
I can't imagine buying an aftermarket exhaust for the E92 M3. The prices for mods are ridiculous these days, Akrapovic is nice.... but shit, you get that, some BBS du jour plus bigger PSS, some suspension, some Chinese-made carbon fiber lip, and you've already spent an additional 20% of the car's value, which is a lot these days. That Gruppe-M intake is like state school tuition money. I miss the 90's, when you could get everything done for under 5 stacks.
I had my muffler gutted. Went to SE Asia for some biz for a week and dropped the car off at the shop for an oil change, and had them do little things, like gutting the muff and had them remove the stupid window tint that came on the car when I got it. Sounds pretty good. Thinking of getting the Turner test pipes and getting those front O2's coded out. Originally I thought it was just an enthusiast private garage for all makes (as they advertise) but it turned out to be...
Seen a lot of the new S-class recently. Still getting used to figuring out what it is when they pull up in my rearview mirror. It's pretty nice looking, but only in black or dark colors. I saw one in light silver and the taillights look weird as hell on light colors. I suspect white will be really nasty too. The new Hyundai Genesis must've started deliveries here too, I've seen a bunch in the past few days. I even saw one with disguise tape on it, driving around. ...
that last pic just screams 'Murica
Stupid question for the BMW BJ club - where do I see the outside temp on the iDrive or center cluster? I haven't had a Bimmer in like 10 years and it used to be on the OBC I think, but OBC is just showing me that I make 7mpg and average 7mph
Tokyo is styleforum as fuck. Go.
