Interlagos Blue ///M Roadster & Coupe Impromptu Photo Shoot

I met up with fellow Zpost member itdnwiwbp and his girlfriend for lunch yesterday afternoon at Lucille's, an excellent BBQ place in the Promenade Temecula shopping center. We decided to do an impromptu photo shoot on the roof of the East parking structure. Mine is the 2006 M Roadster and his is the 2007 M Coupe.

Mine has a Stromung exhaust, H&R Sport Springs, and Michelin PSS 245/40ZR18 front, 275/35ZR18 rear. I'll let idtnwiwbp fill in his mods which are far more extensive.

Yes, that's snow on the mountains in the background!
















There's more to this photo shoot though! This is a five-story parking structure and levels 3-5 were empty, so we accelerated quickly up the ramps, both of our Stromung exhausts echoing loudly in the garage. While we were trying to decide the best position for the photoshoot we were visited by the local constabulary who mentioned that we were going kind of fast up the ramp. I told him that since the garage was empty we were going faster than normal, but added that I absolutely wouldn't have done this if there was anyone else on those levels. He seemed fine with that and then asked "Is that a real M?" I said yes, they were both Ms but that the Coupe had been debadged before it was purchased. He mentioned that he had never actually seen a Coupe before. We chatted a bit and he said that sometimes kids would come up there and do donuts.

We repositioned the cars and got the shots you see here and then the local mall security paid us a visit. We were told that there was no loitering allowed on the roof and that we weren't allowed to take pictures. He said that the no loitering was because people had jumped off the roof! We told him that we were going to lunch so we would reposition the cars and leave.

Unfortunately, this wouldn't be my last encounter with law enforcement that day. On the way back to San Diego on the vast wide-open stretches of SB I-15 I got pulled over and got a ticket for a 3-digit speed violation.

Thanks for posting these, Tom. I just realized I haven't gotten around to posting any pics since the wheels/tires/suspension were done last week. Here is my current mod list: Maritime Dash/Console, Saddle Seats/Door Panels, AFE Intake, Dinan Strut Brace, BMW Carbon Lip, Carbon Fiber Grill Surrounds, Stubby Antenna, RPI Skid Plates, ZHP Shift Knob, Tekarbon CF mirrors, Stromung Exhaust, CDV Delete, UUC Short Shifter, OEM Aero Side Skirts & Painted Corners, TC Klein Smart Design D/A Coilovers & Camber Plates, Hyper Black APEX ARC-8 18x9.5et35 18x10et25 & lug stud conversion, Michelin PSS 255/35 front 275/35 rear, Turner front adjustable sway bar end links.

It has -2.9 camber and 1.5mm toe-in in the front, -2.4 3mm toe-in in the rear and is corner balanced.

Once I'm comfortable that I'm not going to scrape too often I'll put my APR splitter on. No scrapes so far so probably next month.

You should post the two pictures you took on your phone of the local cop and the mall security cop!

Patrons of the Temecula Promenade can take comfort in knowing that the parking garage is well patrolled!

Here's one I took last month after I put in my new orange-filled ///M BMWPedals. Not a great shot. I can take some better ones if you'd like.

Nice photos!. When I was stationed in Pendleton, and before I bought my roadster, I used to go to that same spot for 3000GT meet ups. I wouldn't be surprised if there were various car clubs meeting up around there at night.

A daylight shot without flash would give a better representation. That photo makes your interior look beige

It really is stunning when seen in person, alhough I'm not a big fan of wood in contemporary cars, even though I'm a sailor. Heck, I'm not really a fan of wood on boats either, too much upkeep!

Sorry about the delay, guys. I was trying to enjoy my last couple days of R&R with the fiancÚ then I got a stomach bug today. Should have been on a plane by now but oh well. Here's by best attempt from the other day. Direct sunlight wasn't on my side but least what little you can see is the correct color. I should also note the the seats are not out of an M. They came from my 3.0si.
