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. :p

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. :D

Maybe something every couple weeks, haha!

Would be great to have you on the meet up on August 31st, it is a Sunday so hopefully you will have the OSS raptor lights by then
Here is the link for the Miami meet:

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! :D

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!
