Portland Friday night happy run-in w/ Alpine F80 - my very first drive in the F81

Hey Buds

LATE Friday night (technically 1AM Saturday morning) i took my very first drive in my mostly completed M3 wagon.

As i turned onto SE Grand Ave in downtown Portland's east side, i was so tired from such long nights at the shop, but just so damn relieved and content to finally be driving this dream creation of mine.

About 30 seconds later I see some VERY familiar headlights behind me, sure enough, some LCI ICON M3 lights as an alpine white M3 pulls up next to me.

We both rev at each other, wave, BRAPAPAP, do mini accelerations - fun stuff.

Then roll down windows and chat for a bit, the guy just got his engine replaced after a spun crank hub, and i told him "yup, i just got my engine swapped also" and cracked myself up in the process.

I don't know if he realized this loud ass wagon was his car's brother, or not, but i will never forget this moment, this random and brief side-by-side chat with a fellow F8x enthusiast on my maiden voyage.


If you know the guy i'm talking about, let me know his 'gram, or tell him to hit me up "@TouringM3" - super cool dude.

Sounds killer. I'd love to also find a SMB / MBB M4 and M4 Cab for a full family shot

Hit me up any time, DM on IG is probably fastest (@TouringM3)
