New to me 2008 E92 M3 AW/FR

I have been looking for several months for the perfect color and transmission combo in an E92. Finally I came across this beauty in Dallas, and I brought her back home 800 miles to Atlanta last night. The weather has been gloomy, rainy, and cold here, it was actually snowing in Dallas when I picked up the car so I haven't had time to take any proper pictures. I got the bright idea to use the dealer pictures from the sales ad.

As far as I can tell the car is mostly stock except for a wonderful Meisterschaft Exhaust, 20" Giovanna Wheels, and what appears to be lowering springs. I say appears because the car definitely seems slightly lower than stock, but the EDC adjustment is still operational so they aren't coilovers.

I didn't particularly care for the wheels when I saw the pictures but they look better in person and have grown on me a little. I would still prefer the oem ZCP wheels if anyone is interested in a trade or selling, let me know.

I made this upgrade after owning a 2011 E92 335i for 2 years, you can see pictures of that car on some of my old threads.

So far I definitely love hearing the high revs with the exhaust, the car feels so planted and the M steering wheel feels great. I loved the 335i but this car just has a completely different feel to it. I hope to learn a great deal about the M3 here as I learned so much about the 335i on this forum.

Without further adieu here are a few pics:

90k on the clock already which is high I know, but it has all the options that I want for a great price and I'm pretty handy with a wrench.

LOL! I gave the wheels a 3-4 out of 10 when I saw the pics, but to be honest in person they aren't all that bad. I would still prefer the oem ZCP wheels.

90k..thats a lot of mileage..did they pay you on top off your 2011 335i?... at least it comes with some goodies

Your first thing to be changed should be rod bearings at this mileage.

That was my idea exactly, my 335i didn't have a lot of options on it. I made money on the 335i because I owed much less than it was worth, my payments are pretty much the same now.

Congrats! As an FYI, Ground Control makes a sleeve kit, and the EDC remains functional.
