    Default F80 M3 San Marino / Amaro

    Hi.

    I got an opportunity that I could not pass up on. In April i placed an order with BMW for a brand new F80 M3 with San Marino exterior paint and Amaro brown leather. Kind of a similar combination to my previous car, which really made me fall in love with the blue/brown combo.



    This is really a car I have put my mind into getting everything right from the beginning. Some of the main features on the car:
    - Competition package
    - Manual transmission
    - Adaptive LED
    - Comfort access
    - Surround view
    - Navigasjon professional
    - Head up display
    - Harman/Kardon Hifi
    - Sunroof (don't like the blue/carbon combo)
    - No tint - to show off the beautiful interior

    I chose to pick it up at BMW Welt in Germany and drive it home to Norway. With the Premium Advance package I got a separate room for delivery, which was pretty amazing!


    First drive with the car. Drove the following route: Munich - Vienna - Prague - Berlin - Hirtshals - Bergen.




    Back home I did the break-in-service and started with a few mods. Front lip, High kick trunk lip, painted reflectors, diffuser, exhaust tips and H&R Sport springs.

    This is what the car looks like now:







    I am currently rebuilding my 20" OZ Futura to fit the car. They will be 9,5" et15 and 11" et32.


    Also looking into buying air suspension for the car during winter.

    Thanks for reading!

    Please check my instagram @frodedale if you like the car.

    Now that is a stunning combo; wow! I never knew the F8#s came with the ///M stitching on the seat belts, nice little touch that.

    Thank you. The stitching on the seat belts is part of the Competition Package.

    Thank you! This was a dream come true for me, to do have a brand new car delivered at Welt and being an M-car.

    Wow, this is beautiful. That color combo is perfect. So awesome you could pick the car up direct from BMW Welt and drive it home. I can only imagine how wonderful that would be. Cant wait to see the new wheels mounted up, will look perfect.

    Fantastic car!!

    Why are you going for air again?
    With your E92 you went from air back to static if I remember is correct.

    Can`t wait to see how this comes together

    You are correct. Basically because I ended up with almost the same cost as a full air kit. In my mind I get more value for money with air. My lip is already taking a beating with the lowering springs, and it is by far low enough.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I have never driven air but I always have the feeling this is more for comfort and looks and less for drivability.

    I this still the samen with the newest air rides?

    Your car`s are always great.
    Please post some pics of you last 6 cars.... just for inspiration :-)

    Modern Systems are Performance capable.
    I recommend Airlift Performance Struts and 3P/H Management. I love mine and would never go back to coilovers...

    @Frodedale: This car tucking these wheels will be sexy af <3

    It really depends what you compare it to. Of course you can buy coilovers set up for race tracks that handle better, but compared to the coilovers I've had (KW, Bilstein, Supersport, etc.) air suspension handle as good as or better, I was really testing the suspension on my E92 and I enjoyed driving it up the mountain roads. And air handles small bumps even better than coilovers.

    BUT, you have to buy a good management system with 4 air lines. Or else it will handle like shit.

    I'm going air lift 3P, but haven't decided on struts/bags yet. Not sure if air lift go low enough.
