When I was in H.S., the E36 ///M3 totally caught my attention! Though I never test drove an M3 before (let a lone any BMW), I always admired the car's well design, craftsmanship and engineering. The car is just well made, best all around. To me it just screams like a fancy and classy kinda car. At the time, I thought I'd never be able to afford one. So in 2001, I bought a new Prelude type SH.
Fast forward to 2013, I placed an order for my first ///M3 immediately after test driving for the first time. What better way to own one, especially the last of the ///M3 breed with a V8 engine, naturally aspirated!
