P.S. The only steal you got was My two books!
: 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=)
