My Ride: M3, Z28, 1.8T
New

I'm new to both BMWs and Michigan. Just moved out here in August and decided to get rid of my modded 1.8T. I was looking at E46s in general but all my friends convinced me that with my personality, I wouldn't be satisfied with anything less than an M3. I wound up getting a completely stock 2002 M3 with 75,000 miles out of Wisconsin.











I've got too many cars right now so the middle one is for sale.



I plan to keep it stock for quite a while, maybe just a tint and a short shifter until it's paid off.

Welcome! Keep your Jetta, Sell the thing on the far left! I also had a 1.8t but it was an Audi. Traded that for an MK6 GTI and I picked up a Carbon Black 05' M3 a few months ago!

I wish I could keep my Jetta VR6. I had to leave the country to go get my MBA in France. So the Jetta sat for a little over a year, got back and it needed a new clutch, camshaft sensor, etc. that car just isn't professional enough so I got the bummer.

Ha, I've been using it as a buffer for the nicer cars against door dings. Luckily the parking spots here are very wide so no problems yet.

Who's to say it hasn't already?

I'm the guy who decided a 1.8T with a bigger turbo was a good idea and instead of fixing the broken AC and radio in the Camaro, I just ripped them out completely. I just want to get out of debt and get further along on the SM/CP Camaro build before I start piecing together my own turbo setup. No way I'm paying the insane prices for the kits that are out there.
