Black rims

Did you buy the black ones from the dealer? Are they OEM wheels? If so how much did they cost u? I was leaning toward ordering Esotril but I really like your all black look. Thanks

Yep

Why would that matter anyway? Its 6 bolts. My 16 yr old could have done it if I had a lift.

Thanks this was very useful. I also found the 2008 order guide on here and that shows all of the options. The car is like new and I don't think there have been many upgrades to the M3 since 2008...

Did they upgrade the m3 Nav system in 2009?

Are you saying that MW upgraded the M3 Nav system in 2009? Is there an upgrade I can do on a 2008 to the OS to get there?

I would rather get a 2009 if you want navigation, but that's me.[/QUOTE]
