Yes, dealer only. But cars.com is all you need, and you can search for cpo with that as well.

I don't know anything about mods, though certainly Dinan seems to have a good reputation from what I read on these boards.

I'll second that. I have not been to the track (yet?) and on regular roads I doubt that I ever got more power out of the M3 than from the non-turbo Audi S4 I had before (that one made 340 hp at...

I had a 2009 328 xdrive wagon and I would thoroughly recommend it. It's also quite a rare car in the US, tough a very popular option in Germany, and beautiful in its own way.

I wonder, Imperial gallons are larger than US gallons, so 14 mpg in the US are more like 17 mpg UK. So 16 mpg UK does sound a bit low, unless you drive in heavy traffic all the time. Perhaps OP...

These sedans are pretty cars, I think! This one surprised my by how nice the fox red leather looks in real life.

Impressions after first 500 miles

Actually, my first 300 miles of the 500 were almost all in bumper-to-bumper traffic in and around NYC, so that was not so great. Not much enjoyment, and 13 mpg. :rolleyes:

Congrats! I know the feeling about searching for a sedan! To me it also looks the best as a body shape.

My new M3 sedan, well as new as can be!

After much lurking, I pulled the trigger on this alpine-white beauty

Most beautiful of all is the in-service date...
