Re: Phoenix Yellow on M-Alcantara $9k for sale

Nicely optioned no doubt. Does look pretty rough. A lot of the time the condition is a decent representative of maintenance.

I'd have to disagree. Higher mileage with a lot of maintenance records may cause less headaches down the road than one without. There may be a lesser demand for SMG but those looking for one are...

The ZCPs paired with the flair of the diffuser and trunk is by far the best look for this car. It looks so clean with lighter tints or tint-less but I can't bring myself to it. One of my favorites on...

Re: Future collectable for sale In Canada ?

Surprised there's that large of a demand for a "base" car. Even if there is, this one has Nav.

Re: What color E46 M3 did you purchase and why?

It's a trade off for sure. But it actually holds its reflection pretty well despite the pollen as long as it doesn't rain.

Jet Black, a true deep black, looks amazing when clean especially with the chrome accents.

Pulled some codes and the fuel pump relay came up as a sporadic error for the first time ever. It's probably causing the new vanos code too. If it was constant I'd know it's the pump or relay for...

Re: Went in for the airbag recall, leaving with a new transmission!

At that price I'd do it!



Going manual can result in loss of value. Not much demand for "custom" work as the trans. wouldn't match the VIN.

Re: How many miles should I get from a set of tires ?

I believe it was about 10%. Pretty sure it varies and is calculated based on how far away you are from the warrantied mileage. Could have been 15k for staggered setups.

Running Michelin PSS. Got about 16k on the fronts and they look like they're half worn. Had to replace the rears at around 12k. But I was able to get a new pair discounted from warranty. :thumbsup2:

It's possible. BMW. Doubting it because I was experiencing different issues that they have solved. Plus wouldn't I be getting codes for misfires?
