the lifestory of an M3...

Hey bimmer peeps!

Just came into partial ownership of an m3. Well my dad wanted a 1M and I saved up for a 335i so instead of two cars we got one with the best of both worlds We bought the car used from a dealership although it only had 2.8k on the clock when we bought sitting at 3.1k

I used to own a Honda Integra Type S which was heavily worked and I tracked it quite often (build thread)

As you can guess moving to the m3 is a huge step up..I love the combo of ultimate luxury but sportiness when u need it.

Some of the pros and cons I have experienced:
Love the double clutch tranny (so smooth and quick and epic throttle blips on downshifts)
The S65 4L V8 revving to 8.6k (one of the best M engines ever)
fun in the sun driving with the hardtop down
so comfy for when ur stuck on parra rd but push the M button and the car transforms

Its so wide that Im petrified driving on parra rd
horrible fuel econ (I get 20L/100km)
Weighs 1.8 tonnes (although this is not noticeable in M mode)
Has way too many features that it takes forever to learn what everything does)

2012 E93 Jerez Black M3 D-CT
Individual audio
CF interior trim
19" rims
(not sure what is else on the car is an option or standard)
