Let's do it this weekend bro... I'll keep ya posted as it gets closer.

Whats up guys, Im new to the forums. I just purchased an 04 Carbon Black/Cinnamon M3. picking her up on Monday the 30th from Cincinnati. I will have pics up soon, Im ridiculous excited and cant wait to get it! Coming from an s2000 I think it should be a good switch.

Looking forward to meeting some of you guys at some meets/events!

Welcome to e46fanatics! Post up some pics of the M when you get a chance. Sounds like a sweet ride. Makes me want to have bought one of those instead. I'm recently parting out my car so I'm not sure how cool its gonna look in a few weeks, lol.

Let us know if you have any questions, there is a plethora of knowledge on this thread with guys like xixixi, 1sickbimmer and Talha.

Pat

Edit: I'm in west county too (Maryland Heights) and I'm always up for working on/modding up bimmers!

someone hit and ran on me cracked my rear bumper just a bit, the rear bumper needs repaint anyhow. I figure if it's off the car i might as well weld it up before the respray.

My Ride: 2002 330xi
hey guys, pretty new to the forums and bmw scene. i bought a 2002 330xi (titanium silver on grey) almost 6 months ago but just discovered this thread. i live in the ballwin/town and country area. been thinking about a couple mods, intake, headers, lighting, etc... dont know exactly what im going to go with yet. would love all input possible. i love learning and would like to do a lot of the work myself with the help of some knowledgeable people. and i also was in a minor fender bender (unfortunately my fault) and have some paint damage on my rear bumper. does anyone know any good, reasonably priced shops who could repaint? also looking to get my windows tinted sometime in the near future. thanks in advance for all the info. also would love to go on some drives and attend some of the meets. pics will be up soon

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics, I will get some better ones in once I give her a proper detail. These two shots were taken after all the paperwork was signed and the keys were handed over. In a separate post, I would like to share my ///M buying experience with the guys at EAGbmw.com. Good group, but like I said in a different post, to tired to type all that out! haha

Thats OK I already sold my interior trim and traded it for M3 Titanium shadow trim. I still have the CF steering wheel trim and CF ebrake handle... interested in trading those? I'll take $100 + trade for both.
