Metro Detroit Area F3X Owners

Where are all of the F3X owners in the Metro Detorit area or surrounding areas? I just got into an F32 435 and I am wondering what a good indy shop is in the area to go to for adds on and a second opinion? Also are there any local meets in the future?

Maybe we should start a FB group if we have enough people in the area.

Funny, I sold my F30 to pick up another Saab as a DD. Looks like you went the opposite direction!

Ahhh looks like it. What Saab did you buy? I had a 2008 93 2.0T. You may have seen mine, it was silver with black trim / roof, yellow calipers, black and aluminum wheels.

I had 2 Saab before now, and that is enough for me. Not sure how you can go from an F30 to a Saab. saves alot of money though...I'm already spoiled by all of the technology and features I have gained.

My F30 was a DD to my 400+whp M Roadster. It didn't feel special so I ditched having a car payment. The wagon made for a sleeper, and the dog sleeps during long trips, and it's FUN. The F30 was super competent, but that doesn't equate to fun. Two BMWs in the garage made for flaunty swagger pics, but I really enjoy the Saab wagon and BMW Roadster combo.

Good to see you. I have a F30 328i air ride in Warren.

I'm also looking for some indy shops that provides quality work at low cost haha
or some knowledgeable people to have a beer with and work on cars.

Did anyone installed the DEPO aftermarket lights on an F30 locally? I bought a set and watched a few YouTube videos but not sure I'm ready to do it alone.
Any shop recommendation Detroit Metro area would be appreciated.
