Anyone live around the Dallas area? Trying to get an idea of who's all out here and if anyone knows of any local clubs or meets in the area. I am from Plano which is just north of Dallas.

Welcome. There are some Dallas members. I tried getting a feel for the Austin members in a similar post, and posted in the TX chat thread, but things aren't that lively around here unfortunately.

Me too. Sold my BMW for my mazda3, and live in plano too. I miss the quality of the BMW, but not the costs.
I have brought my Mazda in for a couple things and every time I go it's great not to have to pay for something or even have them tell you something is messed up with the car and it will cost you $500. But i do miss the BMW everyday because it was a great quality car and a lot of fun to drive, and one day when i have the money to really afford the keep up on the BMW i will buy another one!!

Also if there is anyone in the Plano area that wants to meet up and we can all introduce our selfs and check out each others cars just message me or lets discuss it through the forum.

my wife has a bmw 328i and it is a much more refined ride but i love the raw acceleration and go kart handling of the speed 3; plus her bmw is an auto transmission although you can kind of manually shift with the paddles. I am definitely up for a meetup. i have signed up for a 2 day drivers edge track day and driving course february 19 - 20 at cresson motorsports. should be able to learn a bit more about how this car handles in a controlled safe environment.

did a ride this past weekend (saturday) up through new hope and blue ridge; some fairly nice semi-twisty close in roads for this area.

oh yea? where did you buy it? after you drive it awhile let us know how it compares to the 350z. welcome aboard. i'm fairly new here too. haven't been to any meets but hope to one of these days. sure do like this car. if you are looking for some relatively inexpensive performance upgrades (well, handling), you may want to read up on replacing the stock rear sway bar and rear motor mount. both easy to do and help the handling and feel of the car noticeably.

so...so far....im loving the car, someone wanted me to compare the z with the ms3, the z is quicker, and has more low end...obviously...but the ms3 just keeps amazing me, its the most "fun" car ive ever driven and love it...the suspension and handling is insaine for a FWD car...but ill be getting some pics of the cars together this week, and ill post em up.


-Anyone know someone that does powdercaoting? Looking to get the stockers dark gunmetal.


Thanks
