F&F, welcome to the area. Your M3 looks good. Try to plan some trips up north to take advantage of the roads and weather (before the white stuff arrives).
I am a former BMW owner, 335i vert w/ Dinan stuff. I am looking at buying a new M3 coupe or Audi S5/RS5. Both of benefits but my heart is pushing toward the M3. Perhaps I'll see you on road.
