Re: E36 M3 - Low Mileage/Tasteful Mods/Maintenance (FL)

Tough to find in FL for some reason I was looking for my coupe for a good 8 months and not one nice E36 Coupe came up in FL that was close to my criteria. I will keep an eye out though!

Re: 2008 to 2013 M3 Sedan

The E9x M3 sedan has to be one of the best, if not THE best value right now as far as an M3 is concerned. Tons of modern power and amenities, V8 and pricing is at an all time low.

Re: LTW ambers and a drop.
