1998 m3 techno violet
1999 m3 estoril blue
2004 m3 titanium silver

All gone.

Currently (impatiently) patiently waiting to find the perfect (for me) GT3

Had an E36 M3 cab, and later an E46 M3 coupe. The steering in particular on the '36 was so sweet (though not as good as on the previous gen 3-series, forget the nomenclature) and loved the high-revving E46 motor.

Many 911s and other Porsches before those, of course, and now on my second 911 since the E46.

I think you mean Lime Rock edition.

I'm a long time Porsche guy that just got an M3. I still have the Porsches but the M3 was a good fit for me as a DD. I really like it so far.
The GT3 is on my radar as soon as my youngest graduates college.

1997 M3
2001 M3 (still my DD - I call it the "truck" now)

Funny story... I had a 2010 M3 on order for euro delivery when I changed gears and cancelled the order for the 2010 GT3. After selling the GT3 18 months later, I actually did the exact same thing (deja vu all over again!)... 2013 M3 for euro delivery, only this time I got a 2011 GT3 RS instead.
