The last naturally aspirated M car
Where it all started.

The E9X M3 is where my love for BMW M started for me, and where EuroConnex took roots.

This is my 2nd E92 M3 and I intend to hold onto this one forever.

In this space, I chat about products I curate, experiences & stores I've had with this car, and technical articles on maintenance & modifications.

Welcome to my build journal.

My latest entries

In this journal entry, I provide my personal, subjective review on the kit. After a few months of driving, the braking performance undeniably feels better with surprising subjective benefits of the rear bias engineering.
In this journal entry, I provide Haimus' objective performance results and compare to the SportAuto test.
In this journal entry, I cover my final fitment, why I opted for this compromise along with a detailed table with final specs at the end.

Hear it.


My E92 M3 is a MY2012 produced for the Canadian market. It is finished in the signature Fire Orange paint M3 GTS via the Individual Program and was optioned with the carbon fiber roof.

The car was otherwise lightly optioned: the Competition Package (ZCP) is the primary option.

The interior is a "stripper" specification: Speed Cloth Seats, no iDrive, no extended leather, no MDrive and basic powered seats without bolster adjustments. It does have Comfort Access (!).

While often mistaken for a Lime Rock Park edition, it's a spec combination that was exclusively available in Canada.

The E9x M3 life.
