Another New EB F30 M-Sport. But, it's mine.

Hey Guys. I'm finally posting some pics of new F30. It's been a long time process. I've been lurking here for what seems a half a year. Thanks for everyone who have answered my questions. Without this forum, I would not be this happy with my car and I would not had the knowledge to make informed decisions.

I ordered for ED delivery first week in November and look delivery Dec 5th. That was a nice day at The Welt. I'll post ED pictures later. The thing finally made it Port Hueneme, CA on 01/05. It wasn't until Jan 29th that I . . . finally . . . got my hands on it at the dealership.

These two pics were taken on the Sunday before customer delivery.



The next Saturday Mod Bargains slapped on my new M5 reps.



She's home. This is how I envisioned my car.



The next Friday afternoon, I bought all that Zaino stuff. You people that use it, know what I'm talking. I won't get into it, but I spend 7 hours Saturday applying 3 thin coats of Z-5 and 1 coat of Z-2. This BMW shit is hard work. But, the result are fantastic. A few late afternoon pics. My back is killing at this point!






Pic to see the rear tire fitment.




I know it's handicapped parking. It was valet'd and he put there. I'm on a little drive up the California coast.



Right about here my passenger thinks I'm a complete d-bag because I keep taking pictures of my BMW. I think I'm embarrassing her. I subsequently blame the F30Post.com forum. I owe it some pics because I've leeched info for so long.



Finally, a few last pics in the setting sun up in the mountains above Santa Barbara. Enjoy!

The car was transformed on the Michelin PSS. I didn't initially think the ContiSport 5 SSR Run-flats were bad. I read some strong negative reviews. But, the PSS are fantastic, and virtually silent (so far).

Thanks a lot. The wheels are:

F19"x8.5" 35ET; Michelin Pilot SuperSports 245/35/19
R19"x9.5" 38ET; Michelin PSS 275/30/19

The M5 Reps are sold by Mod Bargains, but they are not advertised on their website because of an issue with BMW.

I'm not sure. At this time . . . no.

If I do, I'll be just a little. I've got the adaptive suspension, which I love, and I don't want to mess with the ride or over-stress it.

I've considered the H&R OE Sports. I not seen a single F30 on those. Or I may just wait till BMW releases the M-Performance suspension springs and try those.

IMO no need to lower it, looks good to me.

color matched the reflectors, change the turn signals to stealth bulbs, add a spoiler and a nice windows tint will do it for me.

The standard color is blue for the M-Sport.

The M-Performance brakes were a port install at the VPC (vehicle processing center) at Port Hueneme and come in 3 colors: yellow, orange and red.

MSRP for all M-Performance stuff is here: http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=783743

I know I should do it. It's winter and Americans usually don't do winter ED's. So, it's a good time to post a trip. As you know, it's so much work. Like you, I took A LOT of pictures. I have to download all the pictures to Photobucket or Flickr. Every photo I took is too large for download here at F30Post.com.
