New Year with a new car! I let my JZB baby go back in September, and my new girl arrives in about a month. She had 2 miles on her at ED, but all I drove was one lap around the Welt delivery area. Why? Because SNOW! Mods are going to arrive before she does! Can't wait!

Not to purchase another car and to make my ///M3 last a very long time ... longer perhaps then my e46

One thing I will get for my ///M3 in 2013 is a CF rear spoiler ... YES

Sorry to hear that. I'd like to see you keep this M3 and buy a new one and mod it.

I'm putting my E90 on a DIET and taking her to the autocrosses/tracks! I'm tired to people with sport cars looking at my four door family mobile like it's to slow and fat...That's my plan for the New Year and I've already got my wheels in motion!

I resolve to spend less time on this forum! Joking aside, to appreciate how fortunate I am and be thankful everyday. Also, I'm working on slowing down a bit... took up fishing again in order to find my chi. Too much rat racing these days...

Cheers and happy 2013 to all.

Definitely drive the M5 a few times before jumping into one. They are not as nimble as our M3s, but they are beasts!
