On M3s. The production time.
Then again. That doesn't tell us rate of production either. So. Really can't go off that.

Here is another one. I was hoping to find natural leather, but black is not too bad. Really like that BMW blue

It's not an M. It's even more rare on M cars.

True. I don't think I've seen another topaz vert with black interior and manual transmission Of course "rare" probably just means unpopular I still like it though

I hear you. It's very difficult to drive on these NY roads man. I'm very careful. Also the angle of the pic + the uneven drive way makes the lip appear lower than it really is.

I used to live in Douglaston. The roads there suck! But at least the drivers are pretty good. Beautiful car, but it used to scare the sh*t out of me driving mine on Northern Blvd. Felt like I needed awd and balloon tires: - )

I haven't been to NY/NJ since I got the M. Kinda scared to go up there. Fair of losing my bumper or bending a wheel.

Should be getting some wheels this week. But it's a secret. I'm sure Snik will approve.

I's not THAT bad. As long as you're not driving reckless you'll be fine. Just be careful. Luckily i haven't bent any of the 19's i've had but driving on 19's in NY isn't very fun. One of the reasons i'm switching from 19's to 18's is for more comfort.

My Ride: 330ci vert
Smile E46 fanatic

All of your cars just look fantastic,clean, like new only better. I am proud to have one to customize. I can't wait to get started. I just went through the engine and all switches. New horns, new Perrelli's 225x45r17 y91's my 330ci vert is running really strong new K&N filter. Does any one have a suggestion where the best place to get carbon fiber hoods would be?
