Okay.....so the 2001 M5 is gone!
I just bought an E46 M3. 2003 model European version; Laguna Seca Blue color.
I love the car......Its SMG, eventhough I'm all about the manual gear & clutch, I have to say the SMG is fun fun fun! (thats once you get used to it). I live in a slightly condensed city, which make the SMG a comfortable choice. The down shifting feel is great! anyway....I have couple of pictures here, i will post more afterwards.....
