Well, a lot of crazy things have happened since I posted this topic a few days ago. I got accepted to both UBC and UA, and I want to go to UA for petroleum engineering, which would mean that buying a nice E36 M3 would not be realistic as I would have to be paying boarding costs, etc... If I do end up getting an M3 it will definitely be later, I just don't have the money for it right now...
Not that big of a deal though, I will just get a nice hellrot M3 as a graduation present for myself
I'll be lurking around until then, and I'll make that cross country trip in a few years if there is a maxbimmer meet.
Everyone on this forum has been awesome, really reminds me of the Corrado forum over on VWVortex, everybody is so chill
