Hi Dwayne.

Thanks for the reply mate.

I think you're right. The choice is between buying an icon (which in all reality the E46 M3 is), or buying a hot car with tuning potential.

Buying an M3 is not about having the fastest car in a straight line (it is fast enough certainly - but not that fast).

Thanks again for your input.

Tim.

^ I love the M badge, but that new 135 is going to be beast. It may be a big decision, but to be honest, you can't go wrong either way. I wish I was in your predicament. Whichever way you go, make sure to post pictures when you finally get it!

Anyone know this M3 in NSW?

Is it a track car? or some drug dealers?

Would look 10times better with the hood painted. I also doubt he's spent 70k on it with those mods.

Neither. They're not bad rims, but they look like they belong on a muscle car.
