We have 16000ks on the baby now, remember we got our car in june 2011. Would have to swap zorst and headlights over...... And prolly wheels. I dunno the owner may just say no, it is just a thought.

It is just an opportunity, if I didn't have the cayman r it would be more of a possibility I guess, then again I do want a turbo s or GT3. , man I wish I had more monies

I have been thinking about it. One stay stock and one modified. Except the second one is probably going to be very costly - like half my wealth.

For the price of a second new 1M I'd look at a reasonable second hand E92 M3 and mod that for the track - even an '07 would do.

I'm missing that V8!!

+ 1

The 1M is amazing but if you have money to burn for a second 1M why not get an AW E92 M3 DCT and throw a supercharger on it. I know Vorsteiner have a sale going on at the moment, 12k for the entire kit. The amazing thing about the M3 is that the engine and chassis can easily handle 700hp. Only other things I'd recommend doing is full exhaust, brakes and tyres. It's completely civilised to drive daily plus it's on a whole new level. Here is an example on a stock M3, aside the modifications I already mentioned.



This is what I would really consider doing if I could fit this in for 120k. Seems like a perfect combination and the ideal companion for your 1M

I hear you!

If I could get a track car I'd get a little Elise. I don't want much .

BTW - have you seen how many E9x M3s there are on carsales.com - Unbelievable! Even an 07 E92 would do me - as long as it's still stock. Some of them are now under $90k! I wonder how long before they hit the $50k mark?

IMO there is a lot out there as they are coming off lease like mine did. Supply versus demand.

They will stabilize as the supply drops off I think, $50k? not for a few years.

Well picked up my 1M on Saturday morning and drove up to Palm Beach on both days of the weekend. Photos will follow soon once I recover some data from my stuffed laptop.

BTW, on Saturday there was also a VO 1M waiting to be picked up too.
