Re: Hard to let go of M3..

I have a Tundra TRD Pro, nice truck but you can do better. It gets 15mpg on a good day. '19 Rams have that nicest interior going.

Re: Which E46 should I get?? 83k Miles or 141K?

Do you have a good local independent import shop who knows BMWs? You don't want to be dealing with a BMW dealer with this platform.
