Just joined the E90 M3 club!

Hey guys,

I found a rather good deal on an '09 E90 with 19k miles with DCT (which is awesome in DC traffic haha) and after test driving it, I knew she had to be mine!

Silverstone Metallic finish with Novillo Black Interior w/Sycamore trim and fully loaded with Premium, Tech, Cold weather, Premium Sound, PDC, EDC and 19" wheels (but no moonroof, but I don't know if that was an option or not).
It also has a set of pretty much new PS2s, Clear Bra on the entire front, Angel Eyes, Tinted Windows and the grille/hood vents are OEM parts in Black Chrome i think.
1 year left on the factory warranty, and 3 on the extended maintenance so it should be easy to take care of too!

I'm gonna get it detailed next week, and maybe snap some more shots then as these were taken after I had driven around a bit, and the tire shine seems to have sprayed a bit onto the body (cleaned it off since) as well as there being some dirt spots here and there.

Either way, I was not ready for how much I love this car. I think the gf is slightly jealous of the attention haha, but seriously I have been coming up with excuses to drive since I got it. I also have never felt such a desire to keep this car in pristine condition. I don't have kids, but I assume that this must be something similar to how parents feel about their kids in that I want to really take care of this car as best as I can haha.

Anyways here are some quick pics I snapped.

Congrats! I note also the color matched reflectors (unless you added those). It looks like the previous owner set it up nicely.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention those. I haven't modded anything myself and likely will keep it pretty stock other than maybe installing a rearview camera haha. Was thinking about eventually getting a vinyl wrap in Fire Orange or Laguna Seca Blue and maybe getting the wheels powdercoated black, but right now I am kinda loving the way it looks and I'll wait on that haha.

Haha I will someday, I think I probably should take some advanced driving courses first so that I don't crash this thing on the track.

Congrats! Nice find--looks like it's in pristine condition. Few cars can do so much so well as the M3 sedan.

Agreed! I test drove a bunch of cars while I was thinking about it to see how I felt about it, and it still put the biggest smile on my face out of everything I tried. I love how it feels like a nimble sports car when you want it to, but it is still luxurious, seats 5, has a ton of trunk space, and with the seats folded down I can actually fit quite a bit of gear!

Yes! If I'm not mistaken, the moonroof is standard but you can delete it? Kinda seems like the previous owner was an enthusiast who spec'd her out nicely.

Keep her the way she is. She's a beauty!

Moonroof is an option.

Nice thing with no moonroof is that its easier to install a carbon fiber roof.
