Sold my E46 and pics of the new ride

So i sold my green e46 a little while ago I've had it for 10 years so it will def be missed.

annnd, last week i picked up an 06 IB zcp M3! I've wanted one for a long time and am pretty excited to finally own one. The car came with the m alcantara interior and no sunroof, which i really like so far. It's also SMG, (i actually wanted this, my last e46 was manual)

Mods coming soon

The smg takes some getting used to and is a little jerky sometimes, but i am liking it more and more. I do miss the control of a manual though, and may consider doing the 6mt conversion if/when my smg pump goes out

Yeeeeee we both got M3's

+1 on the 6mt swap when my pump goes too haha. SMG is definitely fun and crazy fast but manual just feels right. Still getting used to it, it's not bad at all.

There is a M3 in my city which is strikingly similar(at first I actually that that this car was it but then I noticed the plates).

I really revere these M3's with the sparse interior controls and cloth upholstery, really a drivers car. Shame its a SMG transmission. The six speed would have been fun.

Amazing car man.

Also the alcantara steering wheel and CSL wheels make this car. A truly stunning example of M3's.
