Yes & No. When I bought this car, I was serving tables, washing dishes, taking orders at the restaurant. I was making OK money as a restaurant manager but definitely wasn't enough to afford M3. I could have bought it maybe, put 0 down, pay $1500~$1800 a month but I'd had to eat instant noodles everyday I started modding slowly then my first major mod was the M3 rear quarter panel conversion...I loved it. For M3 folks, prolly makes you scratch your head but for a guy who dreamed of owning M3 but without enough money, this was closest I could get to. And things started to work better and I happend to become part owner of that restaurant which ended up ugly but during that 1~2 year I was making decent amount of money but still I couldn't ditch my E90 335i...let's say I was too emotionally attached to this car. First BMW, hard work, friends, ect. I still drool everytime I see M3 on the road, stock or modded but I do love my E90 and probably one of the most unique E90 335i in the world IMO. But yes hopefully one day...MMM
