Well I picked up the last of my stuff from my now totaled M3. She is a part with no carpet, pad or back seats with the trim pieces half inside and half in the trunk.
She actually starts, but I was told that the rods are bent. Off to auction, to be either salvaged or parted out.
I could not find another M3 in my budget (which has gone down a bit, and the price for cars with at least 1 year left on warranty has gone up compared to what I paid last year) so I bought a 2009 650i. Its a beautiful car with lots of power and very comfortable. Will miss the M3 and I will definitely look at the new ones when they come out.
The forum has been great and I will miss it, especially since the 6ers are few and far between online (I guess 58 year old gynos don't troll
, not that I am one...)
