1999 BMW M Coupe – The Shooting Brake

I saw Tony’s car, what I called a Shooting Brake at the 2009 SASCA AutoX #3.  He was enjoying his 1999 BMW M Coupe, and attracting attention due to its rarity (only 2180 built from 07/1998 through 06/2000 ).  The evergreen color was intriguing, too.  It changed color as the day went from cold, cloudy & damp, to sunny & refreshing.

Tony & his car were well-represented among his StrictlyEA.com buddies.  Because of this club’s involvement, he’s been able to make some nice upgrades to the ‘Brake.

I’m sure Tony has done much more than this partial list will show…

  • Intrax springs
  • Bilstein shocks
  • BF Goodrich T/A tires
  • Magnaflow mufflers
  • E46 brake calipers
  • ForgeLine wheels bought from fellow club member Harold

This is a strikingly different looking car & it performed very well at the hands of Tony.
