For almost a year I was certain I was getting a 2009 E90 M3 in March or April of 2009. Then a a special deal fell in my lap with a 2008.
The .9% financing was the final piece that pushed my decision to getting one now.
My father has driven BMWs since the early 1980s, the latest being an M5. I've always known I would be able to "upgrade" to a bimmer but until recently I was looking heavily at a 335i. But the combination of warranty issues with aftermarket chips (a must in my book), mechanical issues (fuel pumps, turbo whine, limp modes, etc.), and a really good deal on an M3 sealed the deal.
I've taken it out on some local windy roads that I know well and this beast surpassed my expectations which I didn't think was possible. It must be close to an F1 car compared to my 2006 TL, which I though was decent. This is in another league. Scratch that, another dimension.
Now if I could just get through the break-in period already.
My immediate planned mods are a clear bra, blacklines, and tinted windows. After that a short shifter and possibly an intake.
Couple of questions: Does this car really not have a CD changer? And what's the best way to remove the dealer sticker on the back of the car. I didn't get paid to advertise.
Anyway, here are the details:
Jerez Black / Fox Red / Aluminum
Ipod / USB
Anyone interested in a very nice 2006 Acura TL? I have a feeling I won't be driving it any time soon.
