Oh, I just read that the end is wider also...The $2,500 competition package really gets you a wider end? Wow.

But since I'm only looking at 2009/2010 models...they are all the same in the back,...

I tried to built out a new M3, and I see that they have the "Competition Package", which includes the 19" wheels...it says it is 10mm lowered, too.

quick question, 18" v 19" wheels?

I am looking to purchase a 2010 M3 with 18" wheels, and I'm not really a big fan of them...I really like the 19" wheels.

Can I simply purchase the 19" at a later time and put 'em on the car?

Is...

Wow! That is a beautiful car, great condition. If it were a 2009 and had more warranty remaining, I wouldn't think twice.

Can anyone list any differences between an 09 and 08 BMW M3? I know the...

And, given they cost $14k to replace....do you hear of many DCT's breaking/needing to be replaced? That would be a terrible thing to happen to a car outside of warranty.
