Soon to be first time E92 M3 Owner!

I'm picking up my E92 M3 this Friday in Florida.

We sold my Boxster this spring and I have conducted a nationwide search for my new weekend toy ever since.

I owned an E90 (328i) for a couple of years. Still my favorite car that I've owned. Even up against the Boxster and (Holden) Chevrolet SS. The E9x M3 has been on my automobile bucket-list for a long time.

I went back and forth between a new M235 or an E9x M car. Decided it was probably now or never to get a clean example of the best version of the best car I've owned; at least while keeping it in my budget for a weekend ride.

After several swings and misses on other cars, I found a 2008 E92 with 45k miles and immaculate service history and at a more than reasonable price.

Congrats. I had an M235 convertible (which I loved to be honest) - it was a fantastic daily driver. I just picked up an E90 since I needed a 4 door and just wanted something that was a little softer and felt a little more special than the F80.

I might still find myself in an F80 M3 CS when the time is right, but it's a great car and it certainly has that intangible steering and motor feeling that you just don't get anymore. For me I will gladly trade off the low end torque for those bits that make it feel special.
