So come on out. Get your coworker to bring his e30 out too.
yeah the 335i was in need of a wash so I traded it in (lease ended )

I ordered my F30 with M adaptive drive (EDC + active steering) which helps but the car does feel a lot more "floaty" than the E90 for sure. In the limited amount of "spirited driving" I've been able to enjoy the car seems to go everywhere I point it so I'm really looking forward to testing it's limits....although that may require someone else driving the car

Jordans E30 hasn't seen the track since he started the wide body conversion...it was sick before but now its an abomination (the good kind)

Got a great lead on a car that's stripped, track ready, reliable, and still street le...let's say it has stickers. Most of all...its CHEAP! Just needs a cage, 5pt harnesses, and a fire system. The best part is that its totally carbon fiber free. So I might have an opportunity to test drive it at TWS which is also on 10/20.

I could normally wait but I'm moving soon. Really prefer getting a test drive in before I move in Nov.

Nope. Just an E36.

I know someone who is selling a built E36 M3 in the Houston area. All I know is it has PSS9s on it and its been gutted. Talk to Steve at Mayco Performance on Bellaire Blvd.

Honestly, I passed...the initial price was beyond what I wanted to spend. If you ask me, what he was asking was too much for an M3 with PSS9s on it. I would think that the car would have something a little better on it...not that PSS9s are horrible.

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.
