Hi Friends!!!

Hi fellow Bimmerfest viewers/posters/owners!

Did a ton of research on vehicles recently and couldn't pass up a great deal on an AW E92 M3!
I am a long time reader of these forums and the sister forums involved in the BMW
community, but first time actually mustering the courage to post.

Here is my new lady (apologies for a terrible pic)





MODS:
Nothing on her is mod'd yet; however, I am talking to Luis from OSS right now
about putting some Raptors on it! Should be a very nice first mod :P

Future wishlist: Full wrap (matte red probably), matching reflectors to wrap, blacking out hood vents and kidney grills
Dream list: Fat body kit and maybe VF or ESS super charger and some other bay goodies.
Not sure: Haven't decided on exhaust, wheels or what I want to do to interior yet.

EXPERIENCE:
I don't know what the Florida community is like. I just moved out here. Have only
seen one other M3 in the past month tho, lol. Never drove a bimmer before, so pretty stoked!

GOALS:
I think short term goal is just learning as much about this beast of a machine as I can.
Possible long term goal would be sponsorships and hitting some shows, but I am new
to the scene so I don't know how realistic this is! haha!

Congratulations!

Welcome to the 'Fest - Great setting!

The more you drive your e92 M3 - the more you will discover its subtle nuances - the e 92 can be an ax or a very precise surgical blade in the right hands.
Stunning performance, intoxicating exhaust note, communicative steering, a comfy interior that allows you to take friends along, and handsome styling that says BMW -
contribute to the e92 M3 being a compelling ride.

Hey congrats on your new baby and welcome to Florida!
The OSS raptor angel eyes will look awesome, Luis does an incredible job, I have the OSS V4 kit but the raptors look much better!
My advise: get to know your stock engine for a while before you install an ESS or any other s/c kit so you can feel the difference, believe me it is like night and day!
There is going to be a big bimmer event in Marco Island this coming August 23rd and another bimmer meet in Miami on August 31st but both are a long drive for you...
Enjoy your new car safely!

Thanks for the info and the welcoming! If those events fall on a weekend I may be driving
down to Miami to have Luis do the install for me anyhow. Will be cool to meet some people!

Definately will NOT go for a S/C kit any time soon. Like you said, I am still getting used to
the engine and rev matching. It is weird, but definately different from any standard setup
I have driven before (6mt). I am going to take it slow with the mods, not rakin in that much
dough.

Maybe something every couple weeks, haha!

I understand it man, it is a long drive from Miami to Jacksonville
The other event is on he 23rd which is a Saturday but it is in Marco Island so wont help either
If you come down to Miami PM so we can meet, you can drive my car so you can feel the difference with the blower

Looks like I am meeting with Luis from OSS Designs for my new headlights on labor day weekend from 30th-1st!

P.S. How would someone new to the bimmer community in florida look into getting sponsorships? I understand that most sponsors require certain showings for a period of time, etc etc. Looks like there some heavy hitters welcoming me here, so maybe you guys would know!

P.S.S. - I will post pics when the mod is complete

Dont worry about the looks, there are a lot of stock M3's, it is not about the car, it's about the experience, lots of great folks!
