Great, good luck Peter. If you get a chance, say hi to Jon from Gary & let him know I'm planning to drop by & see him in a fortnight.

I'm confused. You're looking for a used M3 but you have a build sheet for a 2013?

Yo! Traveling overnight, check The Victorian Rose B&B in Ventura. Very tasty breakfast - it's a stitch - call for reservation as far ahead as practical.

Yes, I love the Santa Barbara area. I used to have some friends back then that went to school there. Love driving up and down the coastline. I miss that. I sold all my fun cars, and I have been driving a prius for three years. It's a great car, but I need some fun in my life again. lol

So I haven't bought a car from this dude, but he seems like a good dude and isn't pushy. Jamil Zaklit at South Bay BMW. Now, I think its always wise to shop around.

Pay no attention at all to the touchy-feely. Remember who you're talking to....he isn't your friend no matter what, his mission is to make money from: You

That said, having passed the test of time, everyone has good things to say about Jon. Easy to deal with, yes, but he cuts a very fair deal.

Play it as it lays.

Gosh, I so appreciate all of the kind words. I have to let everyone know up front that M3 Coupe allocations are like gold right now, and there seems to be a serious shortfall of available production with E92 chassis buildout well underway. Any other model and I can do "invoice minus" pricing, but M3 Coupes are the exception right now, unless we see a sudden spike here at the end of the final production run...

:-/

How about a 335is??
