I was originally planning on ordering a new 2013 E92 M3 around this time with the pretty much same options as below. I had a preference toward the E90, but back when they still made the E90 I wasn't quite financially ready to buy it.

On October 22nd my wife found a gorgeous E90 on the Carmax website. I checked it out and purchased it literally a few hours later (sometimes you just know), from Carmax in Laurel, MD. I did some research and found out that it was this car:

Carmax price: $56,998 (too bad I missed the previous owner's original for-sale post, he wanted $55k even)
2011.5 (February 2011) Melbourne Red, Black Novillo Leather E90 M3
About 12,250 Miles at time of purchase (it's 19k miles as of today)

ZCP - Competition Package
ZCV Convenience Package
ZCW Cold Weather Package
ZP2 Premium Package 2
2MK M Double-clutch Transmission
403 Moonroof
655 - Satellite Radio
752 Enhanced Premium Sound
6NF SmartPhone Integration

The only mod that was on there was the black replacement grille, which is exactly what I would have done myself. I also currently have a set of Blizzak LM-60s on it for the winter.

Future plans:
2013: ClearBra or VentureShield, some exhaust, plus some minor miscellaneous changes like custom coding
2014: ESS VT-625 or equivalent, baby car-seat (hopefully I can push that off to 2015 though )
