no longer lurking.

So after a long few years I'm back into an E46 M3. I was lurking here for years after I got rid of my first ///M back in 2010

It was between trading my 2011 Volkswagen GTI for 2011 135 or keeping my GTI and continuing my search for a replacement ///M. On my way to work friday I saw one locally, today I went in and decided it needed to be mine.

Monday morning it will be mine

My Ride: 02 330ci
GTI, ehhh..... I got an mk4, not as special as so many people make them, not worth it if you pay full price for it. I rather have an M or even a 330ci over it for that matter.

Exactly what I thought too...I like the GTI, but I didn't want to spend the money and make it APR stage 2 when I could get an ///M and have the best of both worlds , I had a quattro TT and I had way more fun in that than I did my GTI just because the snow in Minnesota made quattro extremely intoxicating.

Thanks! I feel like I saw your car when I lived in Santa Barbara but then again there are a lot of ///M's in SB.

I've finally uploaded some pictures into an album off my iphone, it only took me 4 months..

The first thing I had done was Inspection II. Took it straight from Imola Motorsports to a local shop to respray a few chips, take a door ding out and tint the windows 30% all the way around. Since then I've only does a few cosmetic things like painted reflectors, blackout grilles, CSL splitters and Angel eyes.

Whats Next (Nov/Dec): CSL Trunk, CSL diffuser, Lowering springs, and VB3's or CH-R's.

Any Suggestions?
