CHANGE THE OIL!!Most likely the dealer did a oil change and put the wrong oil in it. I'm sure they didn't go to bmw and spend 100$ on oil

Really. Great idea. Haven't modded anything since my wrx. Left my 330i alone. Do you buy those paint matched. Love to hear any other comments. Thanks

That's not a bad deal. I did steal mine, paid $19,500 for an 02 Vert with 28,000 miles on it, plus it already had Euro headers and section 1, Supersprint Sport exhaust and had been flashed by Turner. Full service records and already had Inspection done.

I would 100% get an oil change ASAP, no question about

Then go to bimmian.com and get those painted markers, they come painted.

You will not stop modding this car, I can't.

Can't wait to really open'er up. Hoping for some nice weather soon. My wife hasn't even ridden in it yet. Hopefully going to take it out this weekend an have the kids hang out with grandma for a bit. Not that my wife will let me get on it. She never once rode in my wrx, liked the 330i tho.

As for the comments on cloth seats I'm curious. I never even knew they had cloth seats until I saw this one. I was use to my heated seats and miss it a little, it is winter tho. I like the seats and the looks of them. Why do you favor them?

Cloth seats are pretty uncommon do that probably why people want them. Enjoy the car! You will have a nice grin on your face when you finally do a real pull. Once spring comes, hit up back roads, trust me. I can't wait to bring mine back out !!!! Ughhhh lol

Sweet car, sweet deal. I do find it funny that someone in Chicagoland would buy an m3 without the cold weather package.
Then again this guy traded two BMWs for a Hyundai.

His loss. Your gain.

In general, I'd think before I modded. The body colored reflectors are fine and an ZHP shift knob is a must.
But beyond that, drive and enjoy.

Finally! The first person to comment on trading 2 great bmw's in on a Hyundai. Yes I know that particular Hyundai is suppose to be very luxury and its not badged with Hyundai but it would still stick in my mind. Definitely his loss. I keep thinking I good a good deal from a dealership so man he must have really gotten screwed on his trade in.

I don't really get it. I replaced my totaled 2005 325iT with a low-mileage CPO 2007 Acura TSX for my wife, but money was a consideration and we wanted something that would be dead reliable and not-so-needy on the maintenance front.

If money were no object, there's no way I'd spend that kind of money on a Hyundai, especially if I'm trading in an M3 with a 6 speed.
Then again Kim Kardashian is a celebrity, so there's no accounting for taste.

Enjoy the M3. The Carbon black is a sweet color. Did you get your shop to look it over?
