Should go into Rolfe and check that m3 out! Saw it through the glass yesterday.

Spotted Alpine in the m3 on Bunda st in civic yesterday afternoon while throwing down a fat yak at tongue and groove. Five min later VO 1M passed opposite dir on same road with plates "CR"...

The orange M3 is pretty sweet.

The bloke the CR plates is still trying to sell his 135. Must resist temptation..

Funny, first time I drove it to work for 5 months.....

Yeh, I had a look at the orange M3 at Rolfe last Saturday, meh. Non Metalic paint and really way too HELLO for me. It is a stock DCT car with the Carbon mirrors and chin spoiler added at Tony Furug. The paint is now a stock colour so costs no more than white. Given it is not a "special" car the interior is stock M3, ie no special coloured stitching etc, just standard Novillo black leather...

It is a SOLD customer ordered car, I believe he has a CF clear coated bonnet to go on it at some stage.

There's a young fella up in Brissie with a orange vinyl wrap M3 with some very tasteful mods. All the work was done by APC. We had some friendly bursts but the lack of roll cage is a dead give away that it isn't a GTS. Still looks fantastic and it sounds intoxicating!! Each time I let off the gas but BOV sounded off but sounded weak in comparison, I wasn't sure if him and his girlfriend were laughing at me or with me in excitement lol. You can't beat the sound of that V8!

Maybe.......... but clearly you haven't heard our Akra modded 1M, hilarious, as I said before, think EVO VIII taking off at the start of a rally stage hahahahaha

That said, we drove both cars the other night to do a School Formal and, under a few revs, I couldn't hear the 1M over the V8 supercar (aka M3 with a modded exhaust).

Yes the Akra is a thing of beauty but a big investment. You could probably get a JB4, full catless exhaust, FMIC + RB turbos for similar money. I've listened to the Akra 1M video many times... it is definitely the best sounding exhaust for the N54 and you get what you pay for. It's the real deal I have a soft spot for the M3 V8 though and it sounds even more beast when it's fitted with an aftermarket exhaust as well!

White 1er with a M badge at the Fyshwick markets this afternoon, NSW plates.

Only got a quick glace at it but the wheel arches didn't look right for a 1M

Easiest way to identify one is the four canons sticking out the arse hahaha and the side repeaters with an ///M embedded.
