Today I fell in love. I saw a blue '97 M3 coupe in mint condition at a restaurant that I was dining at. It turns out the cook who made my meal was the original owner of it. I had to compliment him, talk BMW with him and jokingly ask for his keys. It had to be the most beautiful car I've ever seen!
Additionally, I have to say that I've been driving my '94 325is for just a few weeks now in it's unrestored state and I can't believe the acceleration, cornering & braking of this car. It has absolutely no body roll and returns from a u-turn in a straight line, ready for more.
The quirks and special attention are well worth it to me if the driving characteristics are this awesome and I can't wait to pamper this baby more! Why have I waited this long to experience true driving excitement?
