What better way to introduce your new car than cell phone pics?

not a bad replacement for the M3, interested to see how you transform this ride.

I hope one of the first things on your to-do list is replace those rusted rod ends on the strut brace :)

Thanks! No hardtop, the car was actually for sale with the factory hard top included but I turned it down. I never understood why I'd want a hardtop on a summer-driven convertible, if the top is up it's only up until the rain stops. :P

Love the oem look.
Congrats.

When are u getting GC's? :)
Thanks homie, getting them when a free set rolls outta your BMW parts warehouses aka garage and basement.

Nice ride! looks mint. How many km on the vehicle?
Way, way, way more than you'd think. 198k miles. :eek: It's the best condition Roadster I've ever seen though, previous owner was spending around $5k annually in maintenance. She's also an event coordinator for a BMW club, too (zbimmers).

I knew it :) Congrats man. I overheard you at one of the meets wanting a 2 seater but I didn't want to spoil anything haha!
Finally, someone was listening. All of my close maX friends guessed wrong, swearing they never saw this coming. Nobody pays attention!

absolutely stunning ride!!! even with all the mods I've done to my car, I'd probably leave yours COMPLETELY stock!! Can't see a thing to touch.....

Thanks. Nokia N97.

Nothing yet, even with the homemade-looking Ohio temps. We'll see how this plays out.

1. Where are the boxing gloves?
2. How high does your head stick out in this thing!?
Damn, keep forgetting the gloves in the M3. My head just tucks in under the a-pillars, the only roadster that I can see straight over in is the Miata (all gens). :D

Nice car neighbor! Can't wait to see it down the street :)

Let's gtg with the z's sometime.
Thanks! I actually bought a house last summer, but I'm still quite close (Meadowvale/Sheppard) and visit my parent's place often. I spied an E9x on your driveway the other day, got a new daily? We should definitely meet up with the Z's!

Bought it from Ohio. I never considered the E86 M Roadster as I was never really a fan. It just makes too much sense, I love the ridiculous concept that is the E36/7 S54 (shortened E36 frame, E46 motor, E36 M3 tranny, E30 diff, E30 subframe). It doesn't make any sense, and for a conservative company like BMW this car has great niche appeal. The E86 M was downright predictable, I want shocking. :D Plus I prefer the styling.

Thanks for all the kind words guys, look out for the first cruise info very very soon. You can all follow this car's fat ass next month. *th-up*

Knew which lady you were referring too, her car was recommended to buyers in the Z3 forum.

if i am not mistakened, her subframe was re-enforced too...

Back from a weekend run to Deals Gap / Tail of the Dragon area in NC. Piled 2200 trouble-free miles on the Roadster and managed to crack quite a milestone. Gotta be one of the highest mileage S54s out there. *rockout*

A bunch of us will be posting pics, videos, and stories from the drive in another thread soon.
