My First M3

I decided to pull the trigger on a 13 M3 space grey yesterday, luckily dealer had exactly what I was looking for. I've always loved M3's, however my love for M3 didn't start as early as some of you.

It was back in the year 99 when I heard about the new E46 M3 being released. And then a week later, I saw one in person, it was a blue M3. Just beautiful. I haven't bought a M3 till now for various reasons. But I now finally own one.

I traded my 2012 550I after being a little underwhelmed with the handling, and a pesky vibration that just wouldn't go away. This M3 is on another level as far as the fun factor goes. Sure, 550I was more luxurious and comfortable but I was getting bored.

I haven't really modded any of my recent cars, but I think I am going to mod this one. Definitely going with M performance exhaust, CF spoiler.

Congrats! Came from a '08 550, felt the same way about the F10 550 so I went with the M3. Love the car, no regrets what so ever in choosing it over the F10.

Congrats, we have same color combo and very similar builds.

But unlike you, I am going through "THE WAIT" and have PCD scheduled for 3/22. It's "only" 7 weeks to now.
