Default A New Room-Mate for the 993 (OT w/Pic's - 993 content)

I replaced the S2000 daily driver for the MCoupe last week. So far I've only put on about 900 km's. I'll report back once I've had a chance to adequately evaluate.
It's no 993 but I think I'm going to have some fun with it!
Cheers,
Bob

I've been curious about the M coupes and got to see one at AX last weekend. Seems like a well balanced car at first glance. Looking forward to your reviews.

The new M coupe looks cool, and I love it in that color. Congrats!

Drove the M Coupe at the M Driving Experience. Its a very well balanced car through the autocross. Also drove it on a course laid out as an oval that was watered down. Basically with DSC (traction control) turned off, you can oversteer at will. And you get the e46M3 engine with the M Coupe.

Thanks all. The colour is Interlogos Blue and is a special "M" colour for BMW. This engine requires a break-in of about 2000km's afterwhich they do an oil change and service. Once that's done, I should be able to better assess it's qualities but so far so good.

Congrats.

That's a great looking car, and good choice of colour.
Whenever i'm in the BMW dealership, the M coupe is
the car my eye catches first.

Yes, I've been remiss Jeff. Rick's having some fun with it. He did tires, brakes and a few other odds and ends and it's looking good. I'll try to snap a few pictures over the Easter weekend if the weather improves - getting snow right now.
Cheers,
Bob
