I finally picked up my car last wednesday in NJ. As i got ready for the
day, the thought of my first M3 being only about 120 miles away continually
knawed at my attention. I ran through various scenarios in my head of how i
could get there without leaving my 95318ti behind. Also i had to work. Well
finally i could take it no more, I called off work ( the first time in about
1 and 1/2 years) and decided my girlfriend could take me back later that
night to pick up my ti. As it would happen the ti would sit in a K-Mart
parking lot overnight about 120 miles away, but i had my M3!...When one of
the workers brought my car out front, it looked great, only one problem, no
plates or inspection sticker. But this would not deter me! I took the plate
off my ti, and off i went, after i got a jumpstart. At this point, i was
still a little skeptical about wether my ebay purchase would be a good one. I
drove it home, and about 45 mins into the drive i decided to see how it would
run. !
Needless to say the ear to ear grin told all. The car runs absolutely great,
the only thing that concerns me is a little bit of a rough, surge like, idle.
The interior is almost perfect, with no rips, the only rough spot is the
drivers side bolster. The zinnoberrot exterior was superb, with only a few
small, light rock chips in the front, and a couple of minor cracks on the
wing. Since that drive home i have had it parked, and it calls to me
everyday...i just need to wait for my next paycheck to get the tax and tags,
then its all mine!...sorry for the length, but i felt the need to share my
story with some people who might understand the craziness i went through to
get my M.
p.s. the ti survived the night intouched and my 10k auction win seems to have
been a steal=)
