My E46 M3 was damaged in the flood and will be written off.
Really sad. The car is irreplaceable. She was a factory Dakar Yellow in absolute mint condition and under 80k kms. Not sure what I'll get in to next as a summer / fun car ... it will be hard to do better then the M3 without spending double. Anyway, here are some outgoing pics.
I've put the wheels up for sale in a feeler ad if anyone is interested (they are now powder coated matte black). The pic of the wheels does no justice to them in this post
, but it's what I have.
The good news? We're having a baby and were looking for a second car anyway. We looked at everything from an F-150 to X5s/X3s and all the wagon options out there. Ended up ordering an Estoril Blue F31 Touring M Sport with all options except the Driver Assists and Connected drive. Yeah it's auto, and yeah it has xDrive .... but I think this is a pretty bad ass family car. And it should keep me somewhat patient while I decide what to do about replacing the M3!
