Thumbs up New(to me) 95 Estoril M3 Owner

Hello everyone!
Well tomorrow's the big day. Finally pulling the trigger on my childhood dream car. Bringing home an e36 M3. Want to say hello to everyone on the forums, I'm a new owner but long time lurker on the boards here.
Enough about me, here's the specs:

-ECS Tuning Rotors
-New E-Brake Cables and Shoes

If there's anything I should check or replace that hasn't been done already I would appreciate advice from other members. This will not be my daily driver, more like a spring weekends/summer days off/datenight driver.

Also thinking of a name for her and vanity plate ideas if anyone wants to chime in. So far I'm leaning towards "Frauchen" which is "Mistress" in German 😂😉

Plans:
Not much for now, want to take the time and enjoy the feel. Short shifter kit (zhp) probably soon because gear shift has some wiggle and whatever maintenance needs to be done. The undercarriage has some rust spots that need some attention as well. Going to be garage kept under cover and never seeing winter or snow. She needs some TLC and I can't wait.

Nice. I used to have a 98 estoril blue coupe. I thought they only made avus blue for 95? Forget about naming the car. Just enjoy it as is.

Scrutinize it thoroughly before buying. Full body color change repaints are a very big deal. As long as you understand it will have diminished value being a 95 with a 96-99 color, enjoy it!

That's what I was told. Suspension will probably be swapped out for KWV3 coils

I would highly recommend that. I have KW Clubsports on my car, most would call those "overkill" for street use. My wife hates them lol. V3 is perfect.

Enjoy the car!
