Default Realizing a dream

Back when I was 16, I was fortunate enough to attend the BMW Performance Center Teen Driving School in Spartanburg, SC. As a student I drove the E46 330i, which was all well and good, until one of the instructor's offered to take me around the course in an M3. From that point on, I promised myself I would have an M3 one day. At 23, I was able to make good on that. Picked this up in February of 2010, with 16,xxx miles on it.

These are the pics from the for sale ad before I bought it. I was browsing eBaymotors and simply couldn't resist the car - I made the trip to NJ the day after seeing the ad to check out the car in person. After a rather drawn out negotiating process, the car was mine!

















First few pics I took myself after getting it home to CT, in stock form (DD/snowmobile Jag X-Type in the background)













Some more pictures after I took had a chance to really detail it, followed by a road trip down to SC:





















Imola Red interior, replacing the cup holders with the eurotray was the first thing I did













And my favorite part of the car,



Member deadlysyns wrapped a ZHP knob in alcantara for me. The silver ring at the base was also wrapped in alcantara, I hadn't seen this done before. I was surprised by what a nice difference the knob alone made in shift feel. Also, it looks pretty sharp IMO The car is not a daily and I detail it regularly, I don't anticipate it being a problem item to keep clean.





However I was still looking for something more in the shift feel department... Sooo with a call to AutoSolutions I had this bad boy on its way. Ultra Kit 30% reduction, can't wait to put it in.



While I'm under there, might as well replace the tranny mounts. UUC RED Transmission Mount Bushings (mixed track/street use)



And since the highly worn PS1's were lacking a bit in the grip department... Yokohama Advan Neova AD08's in 245/35/19 and 275/30/19. Thanks to eas for the great deal and fast shipping.

Best color combo and a ZCP. What more can you ask for? Congrats for being patient all these years.

Thanks guys, I mounted the AD08's today, rides surprisingly well considering they're extreme performance tires. Looking forward to some HPDE's this summer where I can begin exploring the limits. Also greased up the sway bar bushings, had a bit of a creak up front.

The only thing I would have done differently had I ordered it myself would be sunroof delete, otherwise it's perfect and I consider myself extremely lucky. About the only thing more I can ask for is a GT3, you have my next dream car! Though I think I'll take it in RS flavor, 'scaffolding' and all.
