Lost my M3 ... :(

Unfortunately, I lost my M3 two days ago in a terrible car accident. I've never felt this depressed in my life but I guess life goes on. Luckily I wasn't at fault but regardless I lost my car. I barely got to enjoy it since I just got the car mid April 2011.

I am once again in the market for an M3. I am looking to get a car with the exact same specs I had which is going to be hard but I am not going to give up on the hunt. (Geeze I even had extended novillo leather, lol) ...

Looking for:
09+ M3 COUPE (not sedan or vert)
Alpine White
6MT
LOW km (40,000 or less)
Black interior OR Fox Red
M-drive
Executive Pkg
etc

My 08 had every option possible ... I am hoping to find something identical. I am still open to 08 models depending on the specs and KM but preferably I want 09 just to experience the new I-drive and I can make more use of the bumper to bumper 4yr/80KM warranty.

My M3 friends, help me out.

Thanks.

Yes, Thank god I am. The M3 gets pretty dark when every airbag in the car pops out. Car spun in 2 full circles almost 720 degrees. I had to jump out the window because I thought the car was going to blow up and I was trapped inside the car.

wow that sounds like a hell of an experience that I don't want to try
Glad to hear you're ok. Doesn't your insurance have this X number of year no depreciation thing? You should be able to get a new car, no?

First of all, just glad you are alright.

Why not get the 2011 custom order one ? It's not too late.

Wow, that sucks but at least you're okay! I wouldn't recommend you buying that car back to fix. Looks like there's some frame damage, and the mechanical things looked shaken up. This car will never drive the same, at least not in your mind.
