My newsed E92 ///M



When purchased: Sept 1, 2012
Year and Model: 2008 E92 M3, Build Date August 08. Jet Black with Bamboo Beige Novillo Leather and Sycamore Anthricite Wood Trim.
Miles: 70,121
Options: Technology and Premium Package, CF Roof, 19" Wheels
Transmission: DCT
Clean PPI and no accidents
Price: 33,000

Flew in to Alabama from the D.C. Metro Area to pick it up and drove back.

Analysis. Compared to my 330ci WITH 250K miles the power is OTHER WORLDLY and the V8 sound is FREAKIN AWESOME. The DCT is crazy quick. It's a HULKUSH AUTOMOBILE and I love it. Let the intoxication begin.

yes it was. Picked up the car from Montgomery AL, drove 2 hours to Birmingham, 2 hrs to Chattanooga TN, Then 8 hrs back to WV. Got a chance to play with the Auto and DSG settings as well as the I Drive. Is there a way to upgrade the I Drive to the latest version? I'll do a search.

agreed. I hope my new to me ///M will last that long. I saw a thread where this guy's E60 ///M had 230k miles so there is hope. I don't jump to new cars every 3-4 years. Never been my style.

Congrats! That ///M still looks good. Love Jet Black and initially thought about the Bamboo and Wood combo.

How has the interior held up?

Interior held up well. The driver seat leather is worn a little on the bolsters. The sound system is incredible compared to my E46
