M3Rider is an unknown quantity at this point
Hey everyone, i've been looking at this forum for quite i while and I finally decided to register. I am 16 years old, and I am getting an M3 as my first ride. I have the following options layed out:

Premium Package
$3,300

Cold Weather Package
$750

Sequential Manual Gearbox (SMG)
$2,400

Deletion of rear spoiler
$0

Xenon low-beam and high-beam headlights with auto-leveling
$700

BMW On-Board Navigation System
$1,800

6-Disc CD Player (Trunk Mounted)
$595

I have two problems though, one i dont know if i should get White on Red, or White on Cinn, and second, if i should go with 3 Pedals or SMG.

Anyone with any advice would be greatly appreciated

wow, congrats. You are pretty lucky to get that kind of a car for being only 16. Make sure you are careful, thats a lot of power for someone that doesn't have much experience driving.

well as you know i polled leather color, and it seems like the crowd has similar taste as me. I was really debating between Alpine White on Imola Red, but the Jet Black on Imola is even hotter, so i'm gonna end up getting a Jet Black on Imola E46 M3 with the options i stated abover pretty soon, and I will be sure to post pics once I get the car. One more thing, the dealer told me it takes 3 months to deliver the car from Germany, is this true?

Someone had posted a story of some kid that got a 350z for his first car at high school....the kid was takin some friends in rides with it at lunch and was fishtailing and lost control and went into a ditch..just remember, that m3 has a whole lot of power....I kno a lot of people who have crashed....just a month or two ago two kids drove off devils slide in there supra...driver broke all ribs on right side..passenger broke his neck, but did not sever his spinal cord......giving a car with over 250horses to a kid as there first car...i just dont like the idea....just my $0.02
