Purchase
After a year and half of searching, I finally decided to pull the trigger and purchase a 2003 (not 2003.5) Steel Gray/Cinnamon Brown M3 with SMG, 126k miles on October 19, 2017. It had the rod bearing recall done at 22k, besides that not much else. The car came with 219 wheels off E92 M3, 90mm race studs, BC Coilovers (BR series), SMG CSL Flash. Here's what it looked like the morning after the purchase:



Pictures from the first couple weeks of ownership:

Updated with pictures of the interior. Also have new stud conversion kit coming soon because old ones are starting to come loose. Getting rear fenders rolled soon because it still rubs slightly when I hit big bumps. Making an appointment to get the rear diffuser repainted soon as well!

Just ordered transmission fluid kit from ECS and currently organizing a VANOS overhaul with DanAvoN7 for later this month. Trying to catch up on the maintenance before the mods start rolling in
