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

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.
