    Well......I went to get my other car serviced a few weeks ago and found this on the used lot....2003 M3 with 27k miles....in *my* colors......titanium silver / black. I couldn't resist.:rolleyes:
    Not the best shot, but it's a start:smile::

  3. Gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!! :biggrin:

    We're getting ours ready for the track season. It's rather odd, but when 2yr old Emilie is in the back seat, and I punch it, I hear "go go GO!" Now *where* did she learn THAT!?!?! :eek: :tongue:

    :biggrin: Indeed!:biggrin:

    I think it's a natural human response when you feel the thrust of 333hp in such a relatively small car!:biggrin:

    My kids love it too though I scared my wife to death the first time she rode in it.....and believe me.....she used to going fast.:biggrin:

    The M3 is awesome. You will not regret getting it.

    And it begs to be tracked...which is what I was doing with mine all day. I'll be back at the track tomorrow for more. Get yours signed up!!!
     
  7. Ain't that the truth!! I can't WAIT for "Bimmers across the Border." It's the Boston club's annual trip up to Mt Tremblant in Canada. Great track, eye-candy area (its a nice ski mtn in the winter, and Euro-village by summer). Is it August yet???? :biggrin: :biggrin:
     
  8. BMW-Lust? Mighty expensive vice there pal :wink:

    Man.....these were way more than I wanted to spend for a two door coupe a few years ago, but now you can, apparently, pick one up in excellent condition with low miles for about the price of a new Camry or Accord!:smile:
     
  10. Haha. After having read the thread about your BMW's some months ago in the other thread I exactly knew what was coming just by the '3' and the end of the subject.... :biggrin:

    If I had that much money to spare, I at least could cure my lens lust...
    Enjoy the new toy!

  12. Very nice! I think we have enough members here with M's we could have our own club :wink:
     
  13. Funny, that is the reason I bought mine 2 years ago. Going the way of the dinosaur not to many years off me thinks.

    :smile::smile::smile:Thanks Leigh!

    :biggrin:You'll be disappointed that it's a 6MT and not an SMG, but I will rarely track it so the 6MT suits my style of driving better I think. I am going to take it to VIR soon. I have a buddy who is an instructor there and he's already hounding me to make a trip to see him.

    Yep...with my lens lust nearly satisfied I had to find something else to blow my retirement money on!:biggrin:

    Actually I'm saying this purchased *saved* me money since it was $20k less than the car I had on order!!:rolleyes:

    I agree with you there Paul. I've tried to talk myself in to a Prius or econo sized diesel to use for the daily 80 mile commute, but I'm just not there yet!

    Agreed! I know of at least 5 Café members who own M3's.........
     
  15. That's a beauty Stuart. I must admit to a bit of envy.

    SMG...6MT...doesn't matter. Both are awesome, on track or off.

    My track weekend went great. I was lapping everyone in my run group, so they bumped me up to the most advanced group, and signed me off to solo (i.e. w/out instructor in the car)...and I kept pace with them too! The icing on the cake is that now I get to do the Friday track sessions, which are open only to the most advanced drivers and instructors. It's fun being in the fast lane. :biggrin:

    I hated Bimmerforums when I was a member (and stopped visiting after not too long). It was all either a bunch of immature kill stories, or bling bragging contests. Not my cup of tea. People spending $5K on big brake kits to look cool (I've never seen anyone at the track use them, BTW). I also grew tired of M3Forum for similar reasons. I like Bimmerfest, and my local club board.
     
  19. must be nice. lol.
