Talking New M3 Owner, Pics well overdue!!!

Well,

I pulled the trigger and got the M3 . I've had the car right at a month now and I must say this car is WONDERFUL in every way. I was excited when I got the car I "wanted (RSX Type S)," but the E46 M3 is in class of its own. My only problem now is I can't stop driving the car. The car is relaxing and as comfortable as any sports coupe can be, but its also a monster when you open it up. I am extremely happy with my purchase and I definitely found THE car.

Here are some pics, lets hear the opinions.

*Disclaimer: My camera is on its last leg.*

Awesome! Just picked one up also. Was deciding between E46 M3 and 335i... turned out the driving experience was more my taste than 335i.

Any future mods plans?

The exhaust tips def. don't look stock... Are they the new E9X exhaust tips? And yes it is a great car and I think still better than the new E9X in the end. It gets better gas mileage too! I am getting about 27-30mpg on highway! To me the new E9X have gotten a bit too luxurious and refined... But to each his own opinion... I still want an E92 M3 haha but if i had the choice of that or a used E46 CSL--> DEF the CSL.
