Default dramacydal's 2004 Imola Red M3 Journal - Upgrading from an Alpine White E36 M3

Upgrading from my first love:
1995 BMW M3 (Alpine White with Grey Alcantara Suede Hurricane Pattern Interior).






The new car:
2004 BMW M3 Imola Red / Nappa Black Leather
Purchased: Saturday, October 19, 2013
Mileage: 45,526 miles

Mods I have ordered/planned so far:
F10 M5 Illuminated Shift Knob
UUC DSSR
BMW Performance SSK







And here's a picture of the car with my friends' Dakar Yellow E90 M3 and Alpine White E30 M3:

Nice cars. I think you live down the street from me. Feel like I've seen both your cars on valley circle.

Congratulations on the IR M3! Are you going to be keeping the E36 as well? Don't give that thing up, it's beautiful!

What a small world! We should meet up sometime. I live at the major intersection of Burbank/Valley Circle.

Thanks! My close friend is thinking about buying my E36 so I am really hoping it stays in my circle of friends.

Thanks David! I believe we met back in March at Buttonwillow. Going to be selling the E36, but I am taking my time with the sale. I would love to keep it, but two cars is impractical in my opinion.

We sure did! I had a feeling it was you, but I couldn't tell based off of the few photos you posted. We could have been double M3 brothers, I picked up a Techno Violet E36 M3 pretty recently.

Second week of ownership and was really curious to see how a stock E46 M3 performed on the track. Here are some pictures of me at Buttonwillow Raceway:
