Hello, new M owner

Hello,
been wanting an e92 m3 since 2013. I was in high school at the time.
I graduated college 2019, wanted to buy one but got engaged so decided to wait. My fiancé (now my wife) and I planned on buying an M but we ended up buying a house first (which was a smart idea with this housing price skyrocketing).
We started searching hard again even though prices of every car has gone up and finally bought one. I kept in touch with the previous owner and bought it from him.
I flew to Cali yesterday and brought the title back. Car will be shipped to Michigan sometime this month whenever Intercity Lines gets to Cali.

Car is an AW ZCP 6mt w/ carbon roof + gts wheels. I've wanted it bad enough that I flew out there without even driving it and purchased it.
Once it gets to Michigan, I plan to do RB service this Spring.
My wife and I plan to move to Texas sometime in the next year or two. However, in the mean time, I hope to run into many M owners here in Michigan.

Welcome - from an also-new owner! Your M3 looks great. What's its mileage, if you don't mind my asking? I see you also have a Miata, as do I, an ND2. Lots of fun.

Congrats on your marriage, new home and M3! Definitely sounds like you have your priorities in order and a good plan for the M3. Enjoy it in good health. Post more pics once it touches down in Michigan.

Congrats. Everything seemed to lined up for you. Like every E9x platform……I smile every time I get behind the wheel and shifting through the gears.

Enjoy.

Sounds good!
I plan on taking it to Dixon to get the RB done. Did you get your RB done?

No my rod bearings and throttle actuators are original. My car only has 29K miles; bought from original owner last year. I'm holding out on that costly replacement unless I see need to do so.

I would think so as he seemed like he truly loved this car.
He was very pleasant to work with during the whole process.
