Took delivery of a 2004 M3 on Dec. 11th.
It's sorta like the 2001 330Ci I had, but on steroids.
As of today the car has 450 miles on the odometer.

First Impressions:
Well, I had my 330 for 38 months and put 49.5K miles on it before selling it. I also put it on the track several times. So, I came away with a solid knowledge and ability to drive the car. While I only have 450 miles on the M3, I can tell that it has a lot of the same BMW feel but, like I said before, on steroids. The M3 has much more raw power and muscle. During the first 1200 miles I'm not supposed to rev it above 5500 RPMs, so I won't be able to put the car thru its paces for a while.
But, I like what I've seen so far.
I have an Instructor day at Summit Point sometime in February, and I plan to track the car then.
So, more impressionsa will follow.
