Nice turn out.
Great rides.
I'll have to come out next time.
My 335i Msport looks just like the red one that was there.

The gray 135i looks exactly like my former 135i.
I do miss that car. It's still one of the purest no frills BMW's.
My 335i Msport is nice but a bit too soft in comparison, and now that I've had the
ZF sport AT I can easily say that I wish I would have got the MT instead.
The sport AT is the best AT I've ever driven, but the connection between driver and machine is not the same. Yes it shifts faster than I can, but the functional connection is not there. And my sport AT isn't as smooth on manual downshifts as other F30 AT's I've driven. Often the rev matching isn't as smooth as it should be.
I'm going to have the tech's take a look at it, but I know they will come back with
"No problem found". Unless something is actually broken they don't appreciate issues related to how well something is working, just that it works.

Good meet guys. Hopefully next time it will be warmer and sunny, it'll make for more colorful shots.

Absolutely the sexiest color I've seen since Sparkling Graphite Metallic.

His interior was pretty sweet too he had the Sakhir Orange. I pretty much died when I saw the color combo because I know it'll be a rare.

Nice photo shoot thanks for sharing

Bet some of you where singing on the way home


Chicago, Chicago, that toddling town watch out
when us ///M3 folks turn the town upside down
Chicago, Chicago, I'll show you around, I love it
when our exhausts sing in harmony and people turn heads
Bet your bottom dollar, you'll lose the blues in Chicago
Chicago, the town that Billy Sunday couldn't shut down
and us ///M3 drivers and company keep awake

On State Street, that great street, I just want to say
They do things that they don't do on Broadway
Driving in our ///M3 caravan we keep them awake
They have the time, the time of their life
when they see us cursing down the street one after another
I saw a man, he danced with his wife in Chicago
Chicago, when he saw us coming telling his wife I want one
this one no the red ///M3 one oh honey sweetheart do say yes ....

Cheers, Rolf-Dieter

Life will take us to some interesting places, fortunately The ///M3 will too with a many of us know this very well

The f30 is an unmistakable estoril
