How I came to the M3 Family

On Febuary I was fortunate enough to be given a 2012 Camaro 2LT Transformers Edition. Months passed by as I was having trouble with the car (Mind this car was not my daily) It didn't feel right coming from a family that always loved imported cars, (we never actually really had a American car before)
On December 3rd as I was driving in a neighborhood to drop a friend off at his house a dog had came in the middle of the street, I was going about 30-35 mph at the time and I slammed on the brakes, THE BRAKES FAILED... I tried swerving the car but by the time I did It was too late... My Camaro was in the living room of someones house, Yes I did try to steer my way out of it but my camaro had locked once I ran the curb and there was nothing I could do, My camaro was dead.... I was later rushed to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

A Month passed by and I started looking into cars and I was lucky enough to find a 2011 E92 M3 Located in Massachusetts, did all the paper work through one-day shipping and faxing. The car was then transported by enclosed shipping using United Expess transporting company, and had arrived on January 20th.

Here are some of the pictures of the wreck and the new beast

Congrats. I see that you step away from the american muscle car and into maybe the last of the german muscle M3. Great choice and welcome to the family.

Was thrilled with the Audi s4 and was about to buy one, then I saw a video of a s4 vs m3 on YouTube and I've been in love with the m3 ever since

Good work! Not only did you get into a much better car, but you saved the life of a dog. That shit would've scarred you for like 3 months if you had killed it. I'd take out a living room full of nuns before hitting someone's pet. Cheers.

Drive safe and enjoy.

Welcome to the /// family. You're amongst friends and peers.
