Well....

I dare say most of us will eventually move over to e90post. I know I'll be in an e92 (m3) in 2-3 years time..

Especially with the price of some of them now, kinda was my original Idea, keep the nav until I got over my four wheel driving stage, then upgrade to a M3....but at the rate im going with the nav a e36 m3 toy is looking likely haha.Or wait a few more years and get a e46 M3

Thats why i think its better just to keep the 325, rather than spending 15-20K on an E46M now..

E46 are 12yr old clunkers now - hold out for the e92 unless you realllllllly want a E46 M3.

I think I'll actually hold out for an E90 M3. I'm loving the look of the 4 door with that V8 sound.

Nice Nav! I just bought one myself D22 3.0 STR - no mods yet

I contemplated signing up to the forum but looked pretty boring, i just troll for pics and for sale stuff.

Still tossing up what my next BMW will be - the 335i keeps catching my eye instead of an E46 M3

nice buy! did you sell your BMW or keep it as a daily? Yeah the 335i catches my eye aswell. Really enjoyed driving it in melbourne when I was there, and the fact i can still get a 4 door aswell. Take the nav Bush at all?

I'm going older. I don't think I'll ever buy another relatively modern BMW again.

Although..... if I can get an F30 318d in special order manual with an M-sport kit. Oh yes oh yes oh yes.

Not sure what I'll do. I miss my e36 to the point where I am seriously considering trading the e46 for a good e36 M3. Very hard to find one that would meet my spec though! Either that or a older Porsche. I have a thing for 90s cars!

Nah i drive the BMW as my daily. The nav is for off-road/beach trips

I took it sort of offroad on the weekend and somehow got a piece of metal in a tire, lucky it was fixable... Next i want to take it on the beach again, so much fun! I am lucky i have Rainbow Beach and Fraser Island to play with
