The vehicle sold for my asking price in September 2012. A guy flew up from Atlanta, GA to get it and he absolutely loves it. I wish I could have kept the car but my family needed a bigger vehicle.

Thanks. I had a fun drive to work in it this morning, I stopped and looked at it after I parked, and I think I might be getting cold feet when it comes to selling it. :confused:

My car had a similar sound when the RTABs were bad, happened when I sped up/slowed down or went over a bump. Might be worth checking.

If you're willing to travel, Manassas Motorwerkes may be able to point you in the right direction. I've had great luck with them in the past, as have several of my friends.

Definitely THE definition of the M3, if I could find a clean one for sale at a reasonable price I'd sell a kidney to buy it.

My vote is for the E36 3-series/M3, but I suppose it depends on what a driver is looking for.

Haha, good stuff. When I did mine there were two replacement options...with or without threaded mounting bushing. You should be able to tell which one you need once its out of the car.

What blows my mind is the $41k 2012 Ford Mustang (Boss 302) runs toe-to-toe with the $62k 2012 BMW M3, and not just in a straight line. :dunno:

Cool...if it feels right you should be good to go. Bleeding the system isn't too bad (with two people) if you have problems in the future.

After replacing my clutch slave and master I had to bleed the system several times in order to get the pedal to feel "right" again. Good luck!
