Newbie Here

Well after almost 3 years obsessing about owing a new generation BMW M3 I was finally able to save enough of a down payment to be able to purchase one and not be "freaking out" at the end of the month wondering how I will make the car payment. Anyways I found a low mileage 08 M3 E90 (no options) and paid 39k including taxes which is a steal if you ask me.

I gotta say coming from my last car ( 00 civic si turbo 475hp) this M just feels like a monster waiting to be freed with every gear change!!!!!!

Cheers

Congrats! It's okay. I know what you mean, cuz I freak out every month(only 54 more to go). It keeps me on my toes. If you want something, you gotta work hard for it.

Set her free my friend, set her free!!!
