I just acquired a Black 95 M3. It's just over 70k miles, and needs some maintenece, but was a great price. Right now its bone stock (not for long) accept for crappy clearcorners, and a Remus exhaust tip welded on to the muffler (bleh). I should be seen around this forum now, while my car eats thru my bank account. Hopefully I can get some pics of my ride up soon.

Cheers,
Matt

In fact while I'm at it time to ask a few questions. The previous owner has some ghetto aftermarket battery in it. Now I already know this is bad, as the battery isn't held down properly and under "spirited driving" the terminals could come lose causing a powersurge to kill my ecu, etc. Is the bmw factory battery the best for the car, or is there some even better aftermarket made one?

Thanks again,
Matt

It was a very very good deal. I knew before hand its going to take probably close to 2grand of various repairs here and there, but the price was a steal.

It was $13600. Also some of the 2 grand going to maintainence is going strait into upgarded parts, which I would do sooner or later anyways (brakes for example). Basically what it needs is engine work (new hoses, 70k millage tuneup), brakes, and then a bunch small little miscellanious trim pieces. Overall im quite content.

I have my eyes set on the hella xenon angel eye conversion, but for the time being there are more productive things for me to spend my cash on with the car. I'm sure eventually ill get around to that.
