So finally after my accident.......I'm getting another M3 :)

This all happened about a month ago and I didn't want to really get into it until everything kinda settled down....So, twas' the night after my friend's wedding and all through PCH....I was driving back and pretty much went under and SUV in front of me. Long story short - I walked away without a scratch. I felt like a crash test dummy, all the airbags went off and everything happend in slow-motion. Pretty amazing when I remember it but I also feel very lucky about how no one else was hurt. I attached some pics of the car.

Anyways, after some debate of getting a RR Sport, X6....I decided to get an M3, but this time with DCT SHould be fun! My previous car was a 335i 6MT, then my M3 6MT...guess now its time to experience the awesomeness of DCT.
It will be fully loaded with a COMP Package, only missing the cold weather package. Once I slap my mods on I'll be taking a nice trip up to Big Sur and maybe San Louis Obispo for an awesome road trip. Can't wait

My new beauty will be Black/Black with these mods:
- B&G Springs
- 15/12 Macht Snell Spacers
- Satin Black Grills
- Painted Reflectors
- Angel-i Brights
- Verstrabe Paddles (from Sonic MS)
- MBenvo Coding

Maybe more to come later? Enjoy the Pics!!!

Certainly glad you're ok but it just hurts to see a car like this in this state.
I think I'm emotionally attached to mine. Not sure just getting another one would be the same.

That looks like it hurt. Glad to know you're ok.

Congrats on the new M3. You won't be disappointed with DCT that's for sure.

You're getting exactly the same car I have, except that I have the cold weather package...jet black is soooooo cool, but difficult to keep clean...
I also went from an E92 6MT to an E92 DCT and you will not regret it
