Official Owner's BLACK SAPPHIRE METALLIC 1M Photos

Just installed
First impressions are good. Not really more uncomfortable then it is stock. First i was afraid that it would become more bumpy but it isn't. Roads in Belgium are a disaster so this was not an option. Bodyroll is on public roads almost not noticable, a closed circuit will be a better place to push the suspension to the limit
Looks have IMPROVED significant!!!!
Bye bye fist wheelgap at the front
Some pictures :

In less than 24 hours after delivery we went back to where some of the car's history lies. At the same time we took a glance at the DTM training sessions held there.

Pics below are taken near the tree borders crossing Belgium/ Luxemburg/Germany at a memorial point

Picked mine up just over a week ago, managed 400 miles the first weekend, and now can't wait to get the running in out of the way. This is a true M car, really feels special, especially how it can handle a series of bends. Looking forward to really getting to know it.
Only one question for those who have had theirs a while, do you find it sounds a bit tappety at idle? My 130i and M3 before both sounded similar so not concerned, be interested to know if it is a common characteristic though.

Very nice picture !
It's very cool to be able to see how the pic is made.
Based on the reflection in the front bumper, I guess the photographer is laying in the trunk of another car... ?
