Hey there Spencer -
Well, the car was an '89, but I got it in '96... but yeah... that was the only M'er I've had. Yeah, I came close on one of the late e36's, then quite recently on the e46, but never ended up pulling the trigger. Most recently of course I ended up going with the e92 335 while like all of you, I wait. I have to say though... for any of you who own or have at least driven one... it's more than satisfactory in the meantime.
