Check out the new vid I have posted showing a few of the many BMW’s in Minnesota (United States Of America).
Posted via Bimmerpost.com forums by E92doc. He shows a new purchase made by his wife, of a new BMW M3 F80! Well not just any regular F80 M3, this one was painted red…well not just any red, but Ferrari Red! Packaged with everything else, but not retaining the manual transmission; it looks hot! Love the color, but would I spend 100k on an M3/M4!?! Personally no, I would try and get a BMW M4 GTS, unless this will be the car I’d keep for the rest of my life.
Check out my M3 and E92 Exhaust comparison. If you’ve ever driven the N52 engine BMW, you are disappointed on how quiet and tame BMW has made its machine. However, with a few upgrades I made it into a respectable sports machine.
A little nip here and tuck there! The current trend hitting mass produced performance machines is more individualized and unique options to chose from on-site at the dealer/manufacturer. I talked about this with Damlier-Chrysler–I’ll just say Chrysler–giving more personalization options for Viper owners who want to make their cars “special”, instead of picking between 6-9 options for the colour they want.
Prior to this, Toyota’s Scion group and ultra performance cars such as Aston Martins were the select few that had a complete customization package on the car you would like to receive when it rolls out of the manufacturers lot. Where most performance cars had basic options, i.e. sports exhaust system, front aero lip, spoilers, carbon interior, etc. This gives tuners more options to choose from when purchasing from the dealer, without worrying about voiding a warranty and it also gives another incentive to consumers who are shopping for a new ride and want something unique.
So check this awesome looking 1 of 12 M4’s. Its custom made by the ///M Owners Club of Indonesia (MOCI). Its pretty cool in yellow. Even though its one of 12; 12 of the cars made will be in Indonesia, I believe………..personally I’d be annoyed if another club member pulled up at the coffee shop in the…SAME….EXACT….RIDE…..!
Why no 6-speed?

A little more up beat, but still chill!
