I have a 2004 G35 coupe 6MT right now (I've had the car for 3 years).
I absolutely loved the car, but it felt like it was time to move-on, after more than $10,000 of track modifications.
Since my father recently got a 2011 E92 M3 (fully loaded AW DCT), and my brother got a 2011 E82 1M, I decided to go to local BMW dealership to test drive a couple cars last weekend.
At first I was pretty set on the new 2012 135i, but then I saw a lightly used E90 M3 6MT sitting in the showroom. I drove the car, ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT, put deposit on it and I still think about the feeling I got from driving the E90.
I got a call from the dealership today saying the car will be ready for pick-up on THURSDAY!
I AM VERY EXCITED
Since it is my first M car, I will have a lot to learn from this forum!!
And if there is a fellow M3 driver in Montreal area, let me know!!
