    Smile Keeping it!

    Well, after much pondering and pondering on what to do, ive decided to keep the M3. I was all set to sell, even had the For Sale sign ready for it!

    But after a long drive on my favourite road I came to my senses. I can't get rid! It is a truly awesome car, with superb power and acceleration and I will never get board of that straight 6! At the end of the day, im sill only 21, and im very lucky to have it in the first place.

    Took it in for a major inspection service and had the whole car checked to see if id bought a good one, and the bimm techie guy found nothing wrong.

    So, to celerbrate my decision, I ordered a new set of wheels (as you do!). Should arrive tomorrow, ill post pics then.

    Cheers

    Matt

    Cheers chaps, i am indeed extremely lucky. TBH though, ive climbed the ladder way too quicky IMO....Astra Belmont, Astra SXi, Astra coupe Turbo, Leon Cupra R, and now a M3 Evo Cab!

    I think ill have the bimm for some time yet though, I guess im just really bad at impulse buying cars!

    Well, the Coupe T was £2K (19yrs old), the LCR £700 (21), and the M3 £2K (21). Ive certainly spent a lot on insurance, but as ive always said to ppl, if its the car i really want and i can afford it, then pay it LOL!
