Another guy who recently bought an M3

Hi, I purchased an 08 CPO'd E90 M3 (Apline White / Black Novillo) in March. I've been lurking around the forums since then, and today washed her up and installed IND's cosmetic package. I snapped a couple pictures, so I thought I'd make my first post.

I've only put about 2500 miles on the car since March, but have enjoyed them all. I work as a foreman in an underground coal mine close to Morgantown, WV and the roads are too suspect for the M3 even in the summer. I DD an 08 VW GTI.

Was originally going to look at an RS4 when I stumbled upon this M3. I liked the E90 enough that I couldn't justify the 4 hour drive to see the RS4. Was only going to consider a E92 with 19", but I haven't had any regrets... will probably upgrade the wheels eventually.

I know the vanity plate won't be popular on here, but I am covering up holes from the previous owner... possible euro bumper in the future.

congrats ! The IND cosmetic pkg looks good. the plate isn't too bad.

I have an 07 DSG - but the M is a MUCH better DD (IMO). :-)

Looks good. I like Pneumoconiosis Black better but AW looks fine as well.
