Your Ride: 2004 Subaru Impreza TS Sportwagon
my name is Julian from Winnipeg, MB (Canada). I'm turning 20 in July, and have been driving a 2004 Subaru Impreza TS Sportwagon (naturally aspirated, not turbo) since Dec2003. Ever since I was 16 I've been in love with the M Coupe, but quickly fell in love with Subaru AWD when I started driving.
I think I'll be able to handle university and competitive rowing AND a pretty good part-time job for the next 3 years, and I'm setting my sights on looking for a e46 M3 or an M Coupe secondhand, to buy in a couple of years. I know it's rare to find an M Coupe (There's only one in Winnipeg and I doubt it's an S54), and it wouldn't be cool to just up and buy an M3 without really knowing what I'm getting myself into, so I'd really like to do as much homework as I can before heading out.
I know 3 years is still a long way down the road, but I don't know too much about BMW's but am eager to know the basics (eg. bolt patterns, small glitches, etc), although I suppose a lot of it will come from actually driving one. It's been a closet-dream for 4 years now, but ever since I started looking into BMW's again, I've been getting more and more serious about a longterm plan to acquire one.
If there are any reliable sites or sources for a more-or-less newbie to start with aside from wikipedia or bmwworld etc, that would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks a lot guys
I'll be browsing around to find more information... looks like there's a lot on this forum.
