I've owned my "new" M3 sedan for about a week now. It's a 1998 model with auto tranmission and only 51k miles, arctic silver with a gray interior. Purchased it in eastern Pennsylvania and drove it back to northwestern Chicago with only a break for gas and food, 14.5 hours. I-80 and 81 thru Penn, Ohio, northern Indiana, and I-90 thru Illinois. Terrific handling, acceleration, braking and the like. Even got 30mpg! Of course, tried to contain myself and keep it under 80mph until I get a little more familiar with the car, but so far, it's everything I was expecting.
One thing is puzzling me, tho. I've checked the owners manual and couldn't find any reference to it, but every time I drive it, at some point there is 3 beeping sounds coming from, what sounds like, the left front dash behind the left side of the steering wheel. Not loud and no warning lights associated with it either, but just "beep, beep beep". I have ordered a Bentley manual, but it hasn't arrived yet. Can anybody clue me in?
Thanks for the help!
