My Ride: 03 CarbonSchwartz M3
Hello All

Obviously I'm new to the forums. I am in the process of purchasing a 03 Mystic Blue M3 Coupe. While this is MY first BMW, my wife drives a 2007 Montego Blue 335i Coupe. I've loved BMWs ever since I was a child in Germany and finally have the opportunity to get one. I'm looking forward to closing the deal and learning a lot from the veteran members on the site. Thanks.

Marcus

Change 1! What I thought (and was told) was Mystic Blue was actually Carbon Black. I've got a few minor issues to address. Freaking door lock issue(either actuator or GM5). Wire to washer pump is jacked, so windshield washer isn't working. Washed it today and figured out what was wrong with the washers. Looks like I have a Carbon Fiber rear bumper 'diffuser' if that's what it's called. Here are a few pics. Again, looking to learn a lot from you guys. Thanks.

Didn't take any interior pics. It's black leather with aluminum trim. The trim doesn't impress me at all. Is there anything out there to bring it up some. I looks like raw, bare aluminum. I mean, RAW, like it should've been coated with something or polished or something. I just washed the exterior. Haven't gotten to show the interior any love yet. Plans for the future are getting the windshield wipers and pass. door lock working, claybar and wax, new tires and some maintenance, not necessarily in that order.

I can wrap your interior in CF vinyl if you'd like.
