I'm Back!

Hi

I just want to say hello too everyone again!

I had a recent bout of insanity ... I thought it was a good idea to sell my M3 for a V8 super charged Range Rover .... BIG mistake :-(

So 5months later (of being sooooo bored while driving to work) I've got rid of the Range Rover and bought an Alpine Limited Edition

Phew .... The nightmare is over and I can't wait for the drive to work .... Roll on Monday morning

Yippee

Pictures to follow (after some serious polishing)

So you polish the car because it has some dirt on it? Interesting. Please use a soft pad to avoid removing clear coat unnecessarily and put wax/sealant after to protect her paint.

Agree,.hopefully he is just using the term "polish" incorrectly or that paint wont last too long.

Welcome back. Seems like a pretty consistent story to have people try something else and find that they are either too conservative (i.e. your Range Rover) or too harsh (i.e. GTR). The M3 is truly special in it's balance of every day practicality and performance. This is especially true for the sedan (but I'm biased )

Easy M3Denver .... If we all liked the same thing, we'd be living in a very dull world!

Don't you agree?
