One should be happy in a relationship and if it does not work out one should go ones separate ways. At the beginning of our marriage we pledged a 50/50 relationship and it has worked out well for my wife and myself. We both have our separate passions and we respect one another's wishes so based on this solid foundation I am proud to say we just last month celebrated our 50 st wedding anniversary ... sorry to hear yours did not work out, then all worked out for you to the better I see ...

I just couldn't bring myself to purchase a car that someone else had been abusing in unknown ways.
Some discussion is always helpful, in the final analysis it is a car that one purchases for one self so the decision stays with us. I know what you mean about purchasing a used car one needs to get the right information from the sales man and even if that happens one never knows. Times have changed. My next M3 will be one I step into in München at Die Welt with ED. Perhaps next year or in 2014 ... nothing will stop me form ordering one exactly the way I like it ...

Hence another M3...
The e46 was a great car, I am sorry I sold mine. It was a 2002 and I sold it last year. I might get another just like it for a run around town car ... I know there are quite a few on the market in the US.

Me, 3 hours later... MR 6MT in garage - strike while the opportunity presents itself folks!
I see that perseverance paid off for you in the end ... well done Congratulations

On this particular car, I took more time thinking about it, researching and actually consulted my mother as shes a level headed being. She said I've earned everything, so she actually told me to go for it! She knows what it means to me to be involved in the automotive world, and having her blessing pretty much pushed me to buy it.

No regrets!

Your mom knows best, and you spend your money wisely it is a great car worth every cent. When you think about it the ///M3 Division takes a straight forward 3 Series BMW then replaces about 50 to 60% of the parts on a already fine automobile and ends up with this fantastic legendary M3 it is a sight to behold
Cheers, Rolf-Dieter

Life will take us to some interesting places, fortunately The ///M3 will too with a many of us know this very well, now my C6.3 AMG with 487 HP does it too
