Default DTMdan's Silver Grey 2004 E46 M3 "Emma"

Occasionally during the ownership of my E53 X5, I would search to see where used E46 M3 prices were at. I honestly just did this out of boredom since I wanted to keep my X5 and eventually pick up a second vehicle (most likely a cheap E36 M3). I would always search with the same criteria – Coupe, Manual, under $15k, and within 300 miles. I stumbled across one that checked all the boxes as far as colors and package(s). It was perfect, except it was overpriced with high mileage. This car remained in the search results for a couple months and then it dropped to a price that I couldn't pass on. So I traded my X5 in and picked up a dream car of mine since the age of 16.
