New member to the M3 Forum

Hey guys,
I have a 2004 G35 coupe 6MT right now (I've had the car for 3 years).
I absolutely loved the car, but it felt like it was time to move-on, after more than $10,000 of track modifications.

Since my father recently got a 2011 E92 M3 (fully loaded AW DCT), and my brother got a 2011 E82 1M, I decided to go to local BMW dealership to test drive a couple cars last weekend.

At first I was pretty set on the new 2012 135i, but then I saw a lightly used E90 M3 6MT sitting in the showroom. I drove the car, ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT, put deposit on it and I still think about the feeling I got from driving the E90.

I got a call from the dealership today saying the car will be ready for pick-up on THURSDAY!
I AM VERY EXCITED

Since it is my first M car, I will have a lot to learn from this forum!!
And if there is a fellow M3 driver in Montreal area, let me know!!

Thanks guys!
Pat

Congrats! Do you plan on throwing winter tires on it and enjoying it year round? Sounds like a visit to Mt. Tremblant is in the cards for you in a few months!

Thank you very much!
I'm still debating if I should drive it or not in the winter!
I live downtown Montreal, so I will probably take it out when the roads are clean time to time

And yes, definitely going to Tremblant a lot this winter!

Congratulations on the new car! What is your favorite thing about the new car, if you can narrow it down to one?

This is really difficult, but if I really had to choose one, it would be the feeling of driving the car. It feels like a very refined car. When I test drove it, I was surprised how well it handled with stock suspension.
