Yeah, I go to UGA and work in Gainesville, so I am mostly between those two areas.

Thanks! Unfortunately, I will be changing to an M3 front bumper soon. The CSL did not last very long at this height, and is pretty much trashed.

I love almost every non standard color on a BMW. I like being different from the rest of the crowd. Go get yourself a red right now lol.

EDIT: Honestly, not sure. The previous owner had done the tint. I think the front is 25% and the rear is 5%

Four?! In all honesty, how was the maintenance compared to a regular E46? Thats the one thing scaring me away from wanting an E46 M3 after my 325i

No real difference I'd say. Granted there's a lot of differences in the drivetrain and powertrain, they're very similar. I had to replace similar suspension components on my 330 as I did on my M3s. Front control arm bushings, rear trailing arm bushing, rear subframe micro-crack on my latest M3.. I did have a VANOS seal issue on that same M3 right before my Inspection II.

Biggest maintenance; Gas, Tires and Brakes. A fair trade off for power I feel.

After I got my first M3, I never looked back.

01 330Ci 5speed Tit Silver
03 M3 SMG Mystic Blue (HATE THE SMG DAILY DRIVING)
05 M3 6speed ZCP Imola
05 M3 6speed Imola
