wow, thanks for all the replies guys. Hopefully i ca use it all to my advantage, but we might have to wait for spring to come around for any big changes to begin. As for pics, i'll try to take some when the snow goes away. The seller was just a friend who fixes bimmers up. the interior (dash) is different on this car, which is what i thought identified it as the eurospec edition. The dash has more options on the right hand button panel, even has a speed limit (where it dings when youve reached a certain speed), a timer, fuel consumption meter, etc. Also, it has heated seats, and power sunroof (2 things which the american version did not offer). I'll try to take some pics this week, i'll post them here when i do. for now, here are the pics that the seller gave me when he was working on it.
