    well i managed to sell my S3 thankgod. Got 10k for it and had all the paintwork done before i sold it looked lovely. It had done 85K, the guy rang me up 3 days later to say the clutch had gone. I could not believe it.

    Anyway got this yesterday and pick it up tomorrow.

    Fully loaded M3 with optional hard top carbon black with high gloss coating, SMG, black leather heated seats, cruise, park sensors, TV, SAT NAV, DVD, comms pack with phone, folding mirrors, 19's. 30,000miles 2002 plate. Had a quick drive of it yesterday and oh my gosh it's the mutt's nuts.

    Sorry guys for buying a beemer but i could not resist. Pics were taken on the phone and dont do it justice.

    so you mean they had manuals and traded for SMG or traded the SMG for a Manaul? I think i'll get used to it.

    How old is it? What mileage? How much did you pay?

    An M3 is on my list of next cars ... used ones seem to be coming down in price a little.

    Its 2002 on 02 plate, 30,000 miles 2 owners, 27k it seems like alot but when compared to others on the autotrader and piston heads it's not too bad. Plus it fully loaded, when others for the same money are lacking in extras. I was just lucky to spot it yesterday and he was only 12 miles away from me, he had about 15 calls and had already arranged a viewing for today and 3 tomorrow, but i beat them all to it. It took him 4 months to locate when he purchased it as he wanted a specific spec. It cost 57k new.

    You bimmer tart!

    thats gonna cost a fortune to fix! Plus your gonna have to steal the keys off you other half every time you want to drive it (by which time it will have no petrol in it)!

    on the other hand, it does look damn nice man....

    VERY nice!! My neighbour has one and it sounds great to. Good choice and keep us posted on how you get on with it as some of us may go down the same road one day and a bit of knowledge would be handy!

    What is there to modify on an M3 with that spec, you'd just ruin it?! Keep it standard lol.

    wheels, exhaust, brakes, interior, colour coded kidney grill, csl parts, ac schnitzer parts.. check out the M3 I posted in the "pic of the day post" and tell me how that car is ruined.
