Was about 2 hours away from buying that car seller was a really great guy included the Akra exhaust almost for free.

I Felt so bad when I called him to tell him I was no longer buying it. He took it like a champ but was noticeably upset.

Congrats on the purchases lads, and welcome to the 1M team downunder. Interested in if either of you looked into the Black one with 23K for $77K? Seems like a good deal but has been there for a long time, not sure why, just interested is all. Friend of mine was looking at it but ended up buying an M140 as he needed the utility.

Theres some really nice ones for sale. They are a bit Šll over the shop with pricing though, inconsistent with the kms.

There are 2 White ones for low 60's, If I were in the market (and I might be soon) then they are the pick.

Few updates

Finally after 48 days on jack stands the car is back on the road. Ordering parts and getting wheels painted during Xmas and NY time isnít a good idea haha



Couple of things happened in that time.

Wheels refurbished, at Briffa engineering





VRSF downpipes installed



Yet to instal the catless midpipe (n54 turned into n55 mid pipe)



Also waiting for the lowered springs to arrive anyday now.

Front bumper resprayed , thank you Owen.

Also sold my daily E46 coupe for something a bit bigger, E39 530i

Shouldn't you have sold the 1M by now? It must be a record for time you've kept a car

Went for a drive with a mate to take pics of his car for sale advert and he took few pics of mine as well.

This is with lowered H&R springs installed. Rides a bit firmer thank stock but Iím happy with that and the height these give.

Always had a soft spot for these wheels. OEM E9X M3 Style 260M wheels.
Still prefer the look of the 19" silver 359M wheels but these just give it a different look
