New Member - E92 330d Le Mans Blue M Sport

Hey Everyone

I recently sold my '02 E46 M3 Coupe and decided to get something newer, more practical and economical but at the same time try to keep a bit of performance..

I decided on a '08 E92 330d M Sport Coupe. I do miss the raw power of the M3 but the E92 is so nice to drive and has some great mid range punch, plus I'm visiting the pumps half the amount!

Here's a few pics of the new car...

My plans are to get some darker tints, get the Matt or Gloss black grills, de-badge the rear, fit a small lip spoiler and fit some lowering springs and spacers. Not sure what spacers I can get away with before they start to scrub, but guess that depends how low I go!

Also here's a few pics of the old M3...

The e92 looks nice in that colour combo, but I'm afraid it's not a patch on the e46

That was a lovely looking example

A remap will take you very close to standard 335d performance.

Both cars are cracking. Enjoy the denzil, it's a different kind of performance but still great fun.

Cheers for the positive comments! I'm really enjoying the E92, and will look at doing a few little mods, but nothing too daring!

I do miss the M3, but after 18 months ownership it was time to get something a little more practical. It had done 90k miles and I spent a small fotune in maintenance and running costs in that time. Although it was all worth it!!

I'd agree, but the M3 steals the show, gorgeous car.
