New member of the M3 fam!

Finally bit the bullet today after months of reading on here, months of searching, and after a PPI at the BMW dealership today.

2009 jerez black e90 dct with 39000 miles. A couple months of warranty left. Traded in my 2006 GTO. Will miss her, but good Lord, the M3 is in another LEAGUE

Will get some pics up eventually, once I detail her.

I already freaked a bit when I got her home and heard the metallic "tinking" sounds in the garage....now realizing it was just brakes/exhaust cooling down. Lol. I gotta get over my paranoia.

Anyway, hello, and hope I can contribute in the future. Happy to be driving such a great car.

Congrats & welcome. E90 M3 FTW!

I hear you about the paranoia; hope you're over it soon. Enjoy that beautiful beast...
