    New E92 Owner!

    Hi everyone!

    I've been poking around the forums for the last eight months as I've searched for my first M car. I finally found one in early November!

    2011 E92 6MT
    49k miles
    ZCP
    Premium, Tech, and Cold Weather packages
    Two owners (2nd owner is a close friend that owned the vehicle for ten months)
    No accidents or dents (not even a door ding, though I do have some rock chips on the rockers in front of the rear wheels)
    Full service history through BMW of Vista
    Jerez Black exterior with black leather interior

    I picked it up just in time for last month's Targa Trophy rally in Orange County and I was impressed at how well it stacked up against newer/more expensive exotics. My plan is to keep this as a low mileage project car that I can still enjoy. Initial mod list includes Recaro CS seats, KW V3 coilovers, Macht Scnhell intake, and a Bomiz titanium exhaust. I generally stayed away from tunes for reliability purposes, but I may do an Alpine tune down the road at some point. I had the throttle body actuators replaced before taking delivery as preventative maintenance and plan to do rod bearings soon just to play it safe as well.

    Here are a few pictures for your viewing pleasure!

    How do you enjoy it if you don't drive it?

    Just under 80k here and no issues so far.
