So the boys over at e46fanatics.com arranged a cruise for members in South East Queensland on 26 February 2011.

For the first time basically all year the weather was fine on the Saturday and there was quite a good turn out.

Mine was the only M5 there, but other cars included 2 x E46 M3s (1 convertiable, 1 coupe), an M coupe (Z4), a couple of tuned 135s, various 330cis etc and a F355.

The F355 sounded glorious - Richie has fitted a Mille Miglia exhaust to it and recently added headers. It is very loud and sounds intoxicating.

I have included some pics of the day for you to have a look at.

I raced the F355 a few times and beat it each time. Each race (on a closed circuit) was from 100km/h. He got the elad on me in the first race as I was in third and not pulling enough revs. However, once the engine revved up I closed the gap (which was only about 1/2 car length) and then started pulling away. The other 2 races saw me start in second pulling over 6,000rpm. The engine was in its sweet spot and as a result I walked the F355 both times :M5thumbs:.

I have also included a photo of some recent changes to my interior. The pedals are from BMWpedals.com - the boys there are excellent to deal with and the product themselves is of excellent quality.

Cheers.

Haha.

Scoops and filters will be done very soon. Not yet for exhaust. Just did the resonator delete.

Next is lowered, spacers and probably gunmetal oem rims.
