    ...so thought I'd give the M3 a clean and test out my Sony NEX-5.
    I've never owned a decent camera and my friend bought one of these 6 months ago when it first came out for £600. I managed to get online in the sale for £380! Bargin I think...

    I'm no pro, but the camera is really easy to use, just point and click - so here are the pic's...

    please ignore the bumper damage, this was done by the recovery guy who didn't put the towing hook fully in and therefor bent! Will be getting this repaired soon...

    I do like the exhaust, but can be a bit loud on choke and a little boomy when motorway driving...

    Cheers all for the comments.

    I think the spoiler is just a factory BMW options as I've seen it on non M3 E46 coupes also.

    I've now had the bumper repaired and fitted some smoked DEPO's, so I'll get some more pics up soon.

    I got the camera online mate in the January sale's , but like you said its now back up to £500 in most places...

    Did you get my pm mate about swapping rear LED lights if your interested? I have the smoked / red LED rear lights that would go nicely with your smoked / carbon / anthracite theme. :thumbsup:
