I'm not so sure that the 1LE would decimate an M3 with comp pkg. M3 in the Mustang comparison was a non-comp pkg version with M/T instead of the DCT. The track was also much more conducive to the...

Hey guys, since I've posted this , ac ouple people have suggested that a good detailer / mobile paint repair person could fully repair the areas in question. This would seem to be a better (cheaper)...

Hey guys, I just noticed that I have tiny chips on the painted inner-fender area behind each of the four wheels. I thought it was wax at first, but it turns out that the little white specks are...

You said 13-13.3 for the M3 and I said the 335i could run those numbers. Here is edmunds testing a 335i, 6m at 13.3 in the 1/4. I think I've proven my point on both accounts. I'm not trying to be...

13-13.3 for the M3??? LOL, I'm not too sure about that, the 335i runs those numbers with the 6-speed, let alone the M.

Here is a test of a 6-speed manual M3 (a 2008 no less) that hit 4.3 to 60 and...

Yeah, granted that's the quickest time I've seen, but I think Road & Track tested a 2011 at 4.1 and 12.5 - so it's not too far off. Plus, I'm pretty sure the M3s power numbers are underrated,...

Yeah, I hear you. I guess I'll just touch up those spots around the wheel wells and try not to worry about it. I'm just curious as to why I'm getting chips around that area when no ones else is.

Can you fix it yourself? Prob not

But you can certainly call a wheel repair shop and have it fixed. It would prob set you back about $75-100 which is better than buying a new rim.

I guess the reality is that any daily driver will have some form of damage, no matter how small. Even with a clearbra, if you drive it enough something is bound to happen.
