Mein Auto: 2010 BMW M3 6MT
Newest M3 Owner

Hello Forum,

I just became the owner of a 2010 M3.
http://www.texasimportsales.com/web/...Texas/1243109/

Pictured there. I previously had a BMW 335i, but after taking a friend out on a Tuesday night to celebrate his good grades:





No fault of my own. If anything, the "accident" has given me a much stronger love of the BMW brand. I loved my 335i, it was the perfect car. I had put the jb4 and DCI in it and it was just the perfect machine. I am really hoping that the M3 will be just as good if not better than the 3 series that I was forced to say goodbye to.

With that said... I am 24 years old. I received a value of $25k for the 335i, and am financing the rest of the m3. I have never financed such a large amount before, so I will be being as careful as possible and taking the utmost of care for this car. I am currently awaiting its arrival as it will be shipped from Dallas to where I live, in Central Florida. I have used the search button and looked around quite a bit, but is there any advice or info anybody can provide for a new 2010 M3 Sedan owner?

Thanks guys, and I look forward to many posts and lots of information exchange!_a_

Wow - did you ever get wacked....

Besides having a great former 335i driving experience, I understand why you would want to get back into a BMW after walking away uninjured from such a severe accident.

I had a 335i 6MT and was in luv with the car, but you will soon discover when you drive your M3 that the M3 plays on a rarefied level. Your new M3 is especially striking - great color combination and options.

Welcome to the M3 brotherhood and to the "Fest.

I'm in a similar position (had a 335d) and have the same opinion (the M3 is uniquely brilliant). Congrats!

I have never driven an M3, but a 335i is fast and sweet car. I can only imagine what the M3 will be like.

Wow, glad to know that you came through the accident intact. The car did it's job and protected you.
