I see. That does sound awesome but unless I find an 09 with these exact specs I wont buy one lol.

You should try widening your search
I always search within 300 miles
My last M3, I found it in buffalo, NY
Paid $300 for a one way plane ticket
And drove it home, took 7 hours
Saved about 2500 vs the closest car in spec that was local
And the drive home was tons of fun
A good chance to get used to the car and controls etc

Jerez over Fox Red on a e93 is just The 2nd best looking colorway IMO on a e92/e93

The new iDrive (I believe 09) is a HUGE improvement over the old unit. It works much faster and the menu interfaces are a lot cleaner and more intuitive.

Regarding the "Enhanced Audio" option. If you are planning on doing your own aftermarket upgrade, I've heard you can achieve much better results than the "Premium Audio".

Otherwise, I've read in plenty of threads that the stock M3 Audio system is seriously under powered and not very good at all.

Personally, coming for a 335i sedan, I thought the Logic7 premium sound in it was overall better than the M3 Premium Audio. Don't get me wrong, it's still an impressive system and hits very hard and crisp when turned up (I find that you really need to turn it up if you like hearing the details of your music). The 335i Logic7 just felt better balanced, I didn't have to crank it as high as the M3.

In conclusion, the M3 Premium Audio is much better than the stock unit, but not as good as the massive price upgrade would make you think. If you are planning the aftermarket route you will save and achieve better overall results. My 2 cents....

No enhanced premium sound (and it makes a big difference IMO)
No extended leather
No HD Radio
No Sunshades

Looks like it has everything else.. Nice car!

Congrats. I too just bought an 08 Vet, Melbourne Red over Black Leather. Spec are similar except I have HD Radio and Enhanced Audio (though the yellow speakers look stupid imho). I wish it had sat radio instead of hd radio, and also park distance control.

I am going to price out the iDrive upgrade costs and also add a BMW Nav56 to add video and backup camera.

also missing metallic paint... If you want "fully loaded" you'll need a 2011.5 plus, since that's the only way you can get ZCP and auto start/stop
