The 540 that some of you remember is now gone.. In a peaceful sale, not an accident or anything...

Picked up today:

M3, Imola red on red interior.. 6speed, ummm beautiful and fasssst ..

why did u change from 540 to this?

The 540 was getting old.. started seeing some problems, some parts needed fixing, wanted a newer, more fun car, on warranty , etc..
Looked at some 01-02 m5's, drove them as well, but after driving m3 i decided that's the car for me :)
I wanted a 645ci as well, but found it overpriced...
p.s. those who dont remember/didn't see the 540, here's a pic<BR>

Hehe it's not the sound that matters, it's who'se ahead..
The m3 will never sound like the 540 unless i do $10k worth of work in headers, cams, no cats, and straight pipes

And even then it'll just be louder, but not as deep of a growl as the v8 had...


There are pluses and minuses to each believe me ... bottom line is, i am happy like a pig in shit :) V8 or no V8 :)

archie.. beautiful whip. love the colour too!

M3speed.. the front rims will fit, not the rear's (too wide).. so you'll need 4 front rims.. or aftermarket.

Thanks all especialy those commenting on the colour..
I was a little skeptical at first looking only for a Steel Grey or Black car.. And then i looked at more and more pics, and realized that an m3 DOES look awesome even in red and laguna seca blue..

and then i saw the red/red combo, and was sold :)

Thanks again for the useful info! i think i might throw a set of those on my E36 M3

These rims are alright, you should throw on a set of 19's from the NEW M3's, that would look hot, the 18's are nice, but the 19's look so much better in my opinion!
