That wasn't me at Target. Must be the other black M Coupe I've seen rolling around Cupertino. I wish it was me though... my car is grounded at Performance Technic, problem with the 4.10 gears. =(

Oh really?! (at both the car not being you, and your own car having probs with 4.10 gearing).

Any idea what kind of problems? They rebuilt my diff too for 3.91s and I've not had a single issue

Well I was hearing a lot of noise (whine) when unloaded, so I brought it in to have it looked at. The diff builder took it apart and based on the markings is saying the gears are defective probably due to bad casting... just my luck. We're trying to get Motorsport to warranty them.

I only know that I don't have much NVH over stock at all, and that when I swapped fluids after the first 1200 miles or so, fluids were super clean. Hope you get your car back nice and prepped for more ultimate pleasure driving

Saw yet another IB MC in Cupertino couple of days ago, this time down my street! Cool
Representing our few <1,815 in the U.S. Very nice!
Oddly enough, I see more MCs than MRs. Hopefully it's not because I'm biased

SBM M Coupe in Santa Rosa this morning at Chevron with RPi's and black CSL reps...anyone on here? You were on the phone (or I would've asked), but I'd really like to hear the RPi's in person

Was it a wise-looking Asian guy? I say wise because I don't want to say middle-aged lol. If so, perhaps it was Rob.

Looked like a younger guy to me. It had a U.S. Army Sniper sticker on the back as well.

Saw an AW M roadster this morning on I-80 east bound that was exiting at the Ashby exit, possibly heading to Weatherford BMW. Female driver...anyone on here?

I spotted a blondie female today in a black Z4MR. Seems like lots of girl M enthusiasts. Or is it just cause the Z4 is a girly car?

I saw a silver grey Z4MR on Geary today past Van Ness this morning around 8:45am, looked like it was slightly dropped, had black kidney grilles, and was somehow wired to only have the inner halos on even though none of the other lights were on.

Girls (and gay guys) like the cock. So apparently we're either all girls or we're all gay :

Saw a titanium silver M roadster with a tan top turning into AT&T park this morning, driven by an older gentleman, I'm guessing not part of this forum cause I drove next to him for a while and tried to wave but he didn't even seem to notice my car. Or maybe he was just occupied...
