E90 M3 DCT w/Akrapovic, about the best daily driver/kid schlepper but with ***** I could wish for. Compared to a Porsche it was a deal.

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.
A Daytona Violet M3 would look awesome next to your unique RS.

This is it.

The 200 units limited edition 2013 BMW M3 Lime Rock. It comes with an Inconel muffler, carbon splitter, carbon spoiler, competition package.

'97 M3 sedan
'02 M3 coupe

...but alas, no GT3. Since it is just a matter of when rather than if, I felt that I could contribute...

No m3, but. Highly modded e39 M5, boosted to 620HP, brembos All around, ground control coil overs, custom oil cooler, running conti challenge slicks. Was 2 tons of fun on the track!!!

Now I have a .1 RS and the M5 will only see track days in the rain this winter as its super fun to drift with!!

Have to say that the C63 is a lot more fun to drive on the street, wife drove it, and took it from me.

Saw one of these in person the other day, quite a letdown. Wanna be GTS without any of the really good bits and with horrible US ride height.

I owned a 95 m3 in college, 5 years ago. I had a bunch of mods, but most importantly, 3 10" JLs in the trunk.

... nice! i have a 2000 audi TT with two 10" JLs. best bang for the buck.
