No shame to you! It's been done before and there's a guy around here who says he will do the swap for about 3 k. But my car is pretty boring under the hood so I was kinda making fun of myself lol. One day though.... One day... I will have 300+ wheel, one way or another

Sell the 330, buy an M3 and do Evolve-R tune+intake+maintenance?* It's much easier and the cars are getting really really cheap to buy now.

Info: http://www.europeancarweb.com/tech/e...3/viewall.html

* Not all M3s produce that much whp stock, so some will be <300 whp with the mods. To be over >300 whp for sure, a $5.5k supercharger will do it for sure.

You speak the truth, but at the dinner table the other night I brought up the subject of selling my car and taking about 8k from my savings and getting an ///M. To this, my dad said if I have enough for an M3 then I have enough to pay for college. Oh well, I suppose it's not worth it to drop 7k and have 50k of college expenses added on. I'm lucky enough as is to have my parents pay tuition. I am 100% financially independent with my car, but I suppose it would be a slap in the face to my parents if I'm spending money on a faster car while they are spending money on edu. I'm greatfull for what I have already and what I've been able to buy for myself, and parents saying they will do all they can for school is a subject I don't want to mess with

Now that I know the situation, yea what your parents say makes complete sense!

If you could sell the 330 for 9k though... http://forums.yuppieracing.net/showt...d-Manual-9k-MA

Not a bad deal but I like my Bavarian motor werke vehicle over japanese stuff. Not to say Japanese cars are bad, at all. My plan is to do various mods here and there over the next 4 years, gradually turning my 330 into a track car. Then as soon as I get out of school get an m3 for around 30k (either a nice e46 or used e92, haven't decided yet). I'll put down 10 and finance 20.

Vouching for 330cole's 330ci being a gorgeous machine.

Cole maybe I can bring my photographer buddy with me on Monday, other than that I was thinking it may have to wait until Christmas break and do a winter theme photo shoot cause I go back to school on Tuesday.

Guys its that time again! Whose interested in a meetup? I'd be down for one as soon as this weekend somewhere. I found the dragway last time made it too hard for guys to get down i95 during rush hour, so maybe we can do something more localized this time. Hoping for more members this time! Hypothetically this coming weekend, who would be down?

I'm down! Lets look at everyone's location and try to pick a spot in the middle. Maybe southern ma for the CT/RI guys? I'm farther east so any location is pretty much gonna be the same distance for me. I'll post and bump this thread around too!!
