Happiest Day of my LIFE

Well before I share with everyone how awsome my day was, I just want to give a back story... My 335i was a lemon, and i had given it back in the month of June. I was pretty sure I was going to get a new 335i. I looked around couldnt find what i wanted (color/deals) so i decided to wait.. I kept going to other dealers to look at other cars but after driving a bmw you cant go anywhere else. (imo).. So four months go by and i still didnt have a car.. so i decided to go to BMW and talk to a friend who happens to be the Sales Manager.. he told me if ordered a 09 335 its gna cost me alot, hes like you might as well drop a bit more and get a M3....After having a "sneaky, happy" smile i jumped on the great deal and got my self an 08 M3... Melbourne Red on silver.. 6MT,EDC,wow i cant even begin to tell you guys how much fun im having and how much of an awsome car this.. heres two pics I took with my IPhone.. ill take some more when i have the time..

Did you just walk away from your 335 or did you envoke the Lemon Law?

Nice... same here... my 335i was also a lemon and got an E92 M3 today, i was actually undecided to get Melbourne Red or IB, but I chose IB cause the car had more options, your car looks great..either one would have made me happy... did your dealer locate it for you? I was told there was only two coupe Melbourne Red left in the region as of last sunday, rare color.. congrats!!

Congratulations on the car, but I hope your life takes a turn for the best and you have happier days than one where you simply buy something.

You might want to drop a note to your old mates in the 335i vs section, they say you are mental !!

Looks good.

For the lemon thing, did you have to put extra money down, or was it a straight trade?
