3 x 330i SG ZSP =


Congrats guys, sounds like a fun outing.


Looks like a dealer lot What else did you guys do in your mini-meet...nice to see some DJ'ers finally getting together (Fletch and Scrooge)...sblument, I think you came on a later boat, right?

I see one of you 'chickened out' on the front plate issue....

Mr. Fletcher, I can tell which one your car is, by the rear chrome lugs, you haven't found the black ones you were looking for??

Nice, nicer, nicest

That isn't true, because they are similar. You would expect 3 identical cars to make a boring combination. The opposite is true:

3x3 SG means synergy!

It was especially interesting since sparkling graphite changes so much depending on how the light hits it. It's a little hard to tell from the photos, but in person the effect was quite striking.

By the way, my photos will be up after i have some time to clean them up a bit, probably not until this weekend though.

Hey Chicago Guys...Lets get another meet going sometime...post it up on the US Central section on the Meets area. I'll be there with my GF's 325i Black sapp or if its later on maybe my E92. They are saying late August.

Also you guys should get rid out those dealership license plate frames. And you should get tints on those too. There is a place called Shaded Days in Libertyville if you are near there (847-816-8468)

I have an off topic question regarding the front plate from Field's -- did they just put that on there or did they ask you if you wanted it? I don't want them drilling for a front plate on my car. Thanks!

I bought mine from Fields and I asked my CA not to install the front plates. He said, 'I never do that without asking the customer first.' Probably that's just this one CA, and I called him several times to remind him. When I took delivery of the car, he put the front plate and installation bracket (still wrapped in plastic) in the trunk.

No tickets yet (~3 weeks haha)

So I'll drop in there and also call to remind them that I absolutely don't want that front plate. Thanks, sblument.

Wow, what an eye! You're correct though. I've only found some lug caps in black, and I may have to go with those... And maybe you can tell from my last picture which one is mine? (15mm spacers)

Being it's Illinois, I'm sure the dealer will drill the holes, and attach the plate, unless you request they not like I did. Just tell them to put the bracket in the trunk.

Mr. Fletcher: Looking at the first of your pics...that's my favorite shade of SG..when it gets blue-ish like so... Nice pics...starting to look like a BMW promo shot

I find that I have to see very closely to spot your car from the rear (15mm spacers and all)...but the dead giveaway is to look from the top of the rear wheel arch, I can start to see what you mean by the spacers "filling out" the wheel wells nicely

You must be a tall person (noting the raised height of your head rest )

I think the best bet is on the lug covers...try 'em out, theyre only about 18 bucks for 20s...

As I mentioned, sure looks like a lot of fun. Trying to organize something here as well...I think we have enough SGs here to put on a good show as you lads did

My favorite shade is the one it shows when flourescent lighting hits it, typically after dark. I love it, but I do like the shade you mention also.

The guys both saw in person the difference the spacers make, and it's probably just more noticable in person, particularly at perspectives of 45 degrees or less, or from directly behind.

Actually, my girlfriend has a thing of fecetiously messing with settings, etc., and she pulled my headrest up. I just noticed it the day after the shoot, and I lowered it. I'm 5'10", so about as average in height as one can be.

I agree. Procrastination is the only factor in this instance.

Looks like there may be some interest on the board here for a larger meet. That would be fun too. You should see about organizing an event. Ours was small and quick, but it was still fun.
