Bimmerfest made me sick...

Ever since Saturday I have been completely heartbroken...

When I left Cutter in 2003 I traded in my 328Ci for a Toyota Tundra
recognizing the need for utility with all of the time off while going
to grad school (hauling the dirtbikes, the boat, the kids, surfboards,...etc.)

Well, I am f-ing sick of it!!!

Look what's sitting in my driveway right now. I am almost ready
to pull the trigger. Bimmerfest made me realize just how badly
I NEED to drive a BMW on a daily basis again...

It's a '99 w/70k mi. Power seats, roof, HK, Cruise, the works.

Then we'll see you at the next BMWCCA track school, right? I got a ride with my instructor in his E36 M3/4, bone stock except for R-compound tires. Oooooh baby did that thing impress!

Make sure you work a good deal on it. Oh, and make sure you tell them you know a thing or two about BMWs.

Produced in 01/1999.

Can you believe it? The CPO warranty just ran out this past Saturday, April 23rd
(Bimmerfest)! Must be some sort of sign.

DCS shows a clean service history.

i saw that sitting on the lot for a while and was wondering why it wasnt sold yet.
but it was really nice,
and just so you know, you can get that guy down like 2k on anything, he just wants a quick sale/turnover ,
last year when i was shopping i was down there like every weekend 'test driving' the local goods - buy it quick before i go 'test' it too

You know if TD weren't persona non-grata here what he'd tell you to do!

But get it anyway.

I think the e36 M3 will be one of the all time classic 'stock off the street/straight to track school' cars of all time - you know my vote.

Yeah Jon Tundras kinda suck, that's why I leased mine. There is a person that goes by Komodo9 on bimmerforums who is currently running carfaxes.
Shouldn't this be in the general auto forums?

When did you get a Tundra Jeff?

Mine's not a bad truck at all. I hate the seat, though - needless pain and
suffering...

That M3 felt sooo good when I drove it today. I'm trying to trade straight
across and get a little cash back to cover the few little issue with the BMW..
