My new E92 M3!! what do you guys think?

Whats going on guys. I had an E46 up until 2 months ago that was my little weekend car. Sold it for some good money and just purchased a 2008 M3 with 60k miles from Oklahoma and shipped it to me in NJ. I am very OCD so as soon as i got it i had all service done like oil,filters,intake,brake fluid,trans fluid, rear diff fluid and coolant,also replaced the throttle bodies. After that i had both bumpers re sprayed ( hate rock chips ). Last i had the car professionally detailed, steamed, buffed ect. Also i replaced pealing steering wheel trim and installed f10 M5 shifter. Car is a one owner and owned by a 68 year old man.

Before Detail:



After:

Must have been very dusty when previous owner was. That's even worse than mine. Can't tell, but given your OCD you may want to replace the front windshield seel if it's cracking. I replaced mine last month, and it was straight forward. There is a DIY on the forum.

Congrats, I'm jealous and hopefully I'll convince the bitchy wife to let me get one later this year or next.
I have a 911 GTS in the garage so take this as a resounding endorsement of the last real M3.
I'm counting the days 'till I have one.

Drive her in good health, vroom, vroom!

Looks like a solid example, and the lack of iDrive certainly keeps it nice and clean. Congrats!

The first pic before it was all cleaned up looks like itís been leaking which is very common only way to fix is buy another oil cap usually like $20. Itís not a huge issue so you can wait and double check itís a leaking cap and not just a sloppy job adding oil by the last owner
