New to M3 in SD

Hello all, so im coming from an SRT 4 community, decided to sell my love and try out an M3 Got a carbon metallic coupe 6spd. It has some issues but hopefully slowly i can make her like brand new. Plus side is it came with real CSL wheels i believe the front stamping is on point just gotta check the back for bbs stamp. Its also lowered already, a bit to much in the near will be fixing that soon too. Will need a new front bumper which im having a hard time finding so if anyone can give me pointers on where to buy one that would be great. Anyway check out the pics

Thank you, honestly? I miss my neon, it was highly modified but Cali doesn't appreciate engine mods so I had to go back to stock and then Just got upset and sold her. The nice part is having luxury and speed that I like a lot. It's a great car but definitely have to relearn a lot coming from an srt

I have no clue no records with the car. I'm a mechanic in the millitary and been messing with cars sense I was 16 so from what I can tell the car is good to go, on the other hand I'm not a bmw tech and bmws are special vehicles

I would never get an M without maintenance records.

Welcome! I can help you out in getting an M3 front bumper. Come over to the shop (2M Autowerks) in Miramar and say Hi, talk about M's and mods.
