When the VO in VIC went on sale originally back in July, i flew down to VIC, test drove the car and offered him $110 on the spot. He said no way..... Low and behold it has taken him a further 3 months and now is at $110..... Could have saved himself alot of headache.

It was a great day! Good to finally meet some of you and thanks for posting the photos Ian.

Thought one of the most interesting parts of the day was driving some Eastern Creek laps in an M3 and then in a 328 . . . makes you appreciate just how good these M cars are.

Shame I missed you guys at Eastern Creek. I was there on Tues for the M Dynamic and Friday for the Intensive course.

There were 4 1Ms (3 AW+1BSM) including mine. The others aren't on the forum though.

Gotta love those hot laps!

Apology for my lousy iphone pic.

Thanks for the pictures Ian

Hope I didn't make you too sick as my co-driver

What a great day. Wouldn't mind spending more time in the skid pan.

I noticed you left out the two M3's that tried to sneak in on the 1M line-up ...

Great photos

M Dynamic is much better than Intensive, driving the M3 all day sharing with another person. There were 2 track sessions and braking + motorkhana activities. If you're lucky and there's odd number, you could end up with the car to yourself.

I was pretty surprised too to get a prize for the fastest time in the motorkhana contest.

Highly recommended.

Congrats Alex..

Shit easy install... Infact, I installed without even jacking the car up.. ( as it was the 3rd time I had removed )

Straight bolt on to the existing resonator flange..

EDIT: if you have car ramps it will make it heaps easier, as you are taller than me..

You will just need some WD40 or similar, to spray the rubber couplings holding the OEM rear muffler in place..
