Wish you the best of luck man. My boss just traded in his Maserati last week for an Aston Martin Vantage Convertible. I think he should have kept the Maserati. More unique looking.

Thank you very much

I hope I do too. I admit the M3 is tons of fun. I love being able to take a corner at 70mph without breaking the tires loose, but in a straight line its like a fat dog. I like how comfortable and luxurious it is, but its just a BMW. I dont even bother washing it because I just dont feel like it's special and upgrading an M3 is insane. For you guys that dont know, here's what mods on an M3 cost

Average exhaust is 4-$6,000. M performance is 2,600 and is the cheapest you will ever find for an M3

A supercharger is $8,600 for just 450 RWHP. The biggest supercharger available is $16,500 for 540 RWHP. pitiful.

Front lip? $3,000 easy.
Spoiler? Lucky to find one under $1,000
Intake? $1,000+

It's absolute robbery. After 10,000 miles I had to replace my intake FILTER.... 400 FREAKING BUCKS.

I hope you find it. That would mean that there is hope for me I regret getting rid of it everyday! My only issue is I'm pretty sure the new owner is beating the hell out of it. Mods in my sig. :(

Uggghhhh... sorry about the formatting on that post... there's no way to create any more than a one space division between characters/ letters from this site, even with a direct cut and paste from a site that was formatted correctly...

Good luck man, my uncle had a rally green 1969 z28, he sold it for a 32 ford hotrod in the 70s and he tried buying it back like 10 years later, it took home a while but he eventually found it but the owner really didnt wanna sell it.

if you have the vin I would punch it in on google, couldn't hurt. sometimes you would be amazed at what you can find on line. might be a dead end but worth a try!
