Love the E46 M3, one of my all time favorite cars. Good luck, appears to be a very nice machine.

OK then. Been a friend of Jetblast's for a few years now. Met through ROGUE on a trip for a trackday at VIR and have met up several times at Jennings and Barber. Been a member of all Jet's boards....just don't post much...no time...kids, house, work, etc. Priorities change and have for me. All the toys going bye bye for a while. 04 R1 will be next.

Hey Mark - posting this up while I'm out of money is totally uncool.
I love that car. Hope all is well.

Hey Mark... I did a couple trackdays with you. I was the guy with Mike on the 600rr. I remember you yamaha from your avatar. You brought it to Barber when we were doing the Rogue trackday. Good to see you on here!

Question... did you ever take that M3 to the track? The whole car thing has my curiosity peaked. Looking to get my hands on a sporty car this year I can do VIR on.

Kevin....you're never outta money. LOL

Derek....I remember you...crazy lean angles for a relative newbie. Never took the M to the track but took a couple of older Z's to Road Atlanta (240 and 300TT). Its a lot of fun. Never happened but mistakes cost a lot more $ in a car. From experience, with very little suspension work the M would rock...tends to understeer a bit...nothing proper springs and sways wouldn't cure. I just compensate with the throttle connected to the 330 HP.

Thanks and not all is lost. Replacing the M with a GTI (actually a pretty fun little car) and the R1 is getting replaced with a CRF450. I only live about 10 miles from a 75000 acre recreational vehicle area (don't know the real name but most people call it "Wind Rock")

Good luck with the beemer man... GTI hugh? That's what I'm hovering around at the moment. You can get a 2.0 liter hatch back (GTI, A3, etc.) and mod the heck out of it (exhaust, intake, chip, suspension, etc.) and then take it to the track for a reasonable cost. Even put a trailer hitch on em to take the bike to the track.

That beemer would be super expensive if you hit another car... Not that I ever hit anybody while I was on my bike...wink, wink!

I bought an 07 2.0T w/ DSG and about every other goody you can get on it. Price too good to pass up and it only had 7K on it. It sits a little high and could really use a little suspension treatment. Mid-range is excellent...not that it couldn't stand a little more go. I'll get to do a little bit to it once the M sells.

BTW...Beemer = motorcycle Bimmer = car. Just busting your chops.

Post up some pics of the GTI, have been toying with the idea of one for my next car. The new BMW 135i has caught my attention as well, twin turbo 300hp in a smaller chassis than the 335i.

Gorgeous car - I wish you were closer. I'd love to see this one in person. But then I'd be too tempted. Never mind. I'm glad you're in TN
