Hey Guys....

Just thought I would introduce myself as a new user here!

My name is Scott & have owned my Manual 09 E90 M3 for the last year & a bit, & have never been happier with a car that I have owned......ever

I needed a 4 door so I was trying to decide between an M3, M5, C63 & another HSV (W427) but after driving the M3, C63 & hearing pretty average reports about the trans in the M5 around town from a few owners & receiving the final ORC of the W427 ($160k+), the M3 won hands down & the manual gearbox is just sensational

I have owned numerous HSV's & sub 12 sec. street cars etc. but the M3 blows them all away by way of driver enjoyment.

It is my daily driver & it has not missed a beat.

Cheers Guys,
Scott.

P.S. Thought I would attach a couple of pics just after I picked it up.

Nice car! Did you test drive a coupe (I know you needed 4 doors), if so, were there any differences that you could spot?

G'day and welcome! That's a very clean car you have there. I haven't driven my car for 8 weeks due to an accident on Aust. Day (not in the M3). It's kind of turned from Space Grey to Frozen Grey with all the humidity and dust in the air.

Thanks mate! Nothing worse than riding as a passenger while the wife drives!!! She needs to understand that to get the M3 to perform at it's best you have to rev it past 6000rpm!

Hi Andre
Hope all is well and nothing serious. I'll give you a call sometime.
