OK who's '10 E90 M3 AW DCT did I buy? Honolulu

Lo and behold, I am the 6th owner on the VIN check/car fax. That would for sure scare a lot of people. Not entirely free from the fear of something being broken and changing from owner to owner like a girl in a train. Ownership, it has stayed an island car. And after ~3 yrs of searching, looking for either an AW or melbourne red DCT E90, I'm happy.

40700 miles
Out the door $29K
Having it shipped back from HI to WA for $1k, registration $2k (sucks)

So whoever owned or knew who the owners were. Let me know what you guys did, modded, tuned, changed, replaced.

Has a CF wrap roof and side mirrors, radio bin is swapped to a touchscreen Kenwood player, looks like a reverse camera was added too, probably LUX angel eyes

Plans: another csl trunk, CF side skirt extensions, air ride, some kind of tune, MS pulley, AA intake, GT4 lip paint match, iPE exhaust, what else do you guys suggest?

According to the craigslist ad, it stated salvage title which was why my friend didn?t pick it up. I told him to confirm it as most dealerships won?t purchase salvage cars.

Not sure who the previous owner was as there?s a bunch of M cars on the island.

Nice pick up! Can?t wait to see what?s in store

I tried looking for the ad on craigslist, didn't see salvage but yeah dealer bought car. I was back home a month ago and saw the car listed for 34k, I wouldn't have thought a month later dealer would bring it way down and it would be mine!

Already have a gt4 lip in the garage, 2 sets of wheels, I'll be removing all cf wrap

Congrats man, seems nice but it sounds like the backstory is strange, I hope it wasn't salvaged.

Always was a fan of your silver E90. I myself am going to be looking for a melbourne red e90 m3 in the next year. White sure looks great on the E90 as well.

Nice nice! sounds like you got some good plans for the car.

Yah I don't know why it was listed as salvage...I'm sure that kept the car unsold. Lucky for you tho =)

Despite being the 6th owner, it had a PPI, free oil change with liqui moly, Takata air bag has been replaced, only have a moist transmission underbelly area. I can see someone had already done paint correction with ceramic type coat. Extras, bluetooth mic, hardwired radar wiring and mount (hopefully its for valentine v1), kenwood head unit w/Bluetooth
I don’t like the CF roof wrap or side mirrors.

On the way:
Forcewerkz rear diffusers
Airlift suspension 3H
iPE F1 catback
