Default LAF - Imola red 04' ///M3

My love affair begin somewhere in the 2000' when i saw first pre-production E46 M3, but since they were too pricey to be bought new(90 000eur) had to wait for a few years for price to drop...
So, in 2002 i bought this:




It was really a great car, but everytime i spot a nice E46 i get tears in my eyes...so, it was time to move on and in 2005 i bought this beauty:

The only regret after having a 330Ci was the fact that i have skipped the E36...but i will change that in the future...

After one year it looked like this:



After years of waiting, in 2007 the dream come true...










04' 58 000km.

Then, the decision was make to exibit ma car at Zagreb auto show, so i wanted to do something with my wheels and put as much effort i can, to get the OEM CSL bumper before show.
It was a nightmare, i have found one in Germany, paid a lot money to a seller and then found out that it was lost in the transport after a month it shows up at my door and when i took it off from the box and realise that it weight like 0,2kg i was smiling again
