Thanks Matt,

How can I find out about BMWCCA chapters? I figure the best way to find out about a used M3 is to actually TALK to people that drive them like yourself.

: Check out the Peachtree Chapter website at or call them at 770.664.0624 or join BMWCCA by calling 800.878.9292. You are right, talking to owners is the best way to get a sense of the maintanence involved, insurance costs, and any other practical concerns.

My current Honda mechanic recommended a specialist called Auto Europe on Piedmont. Mechanics name is Norm. I talked his ear off for a while and he LOVES the M3. That's all I know at the moment.

:I'll definitey check it out, thanks for the recommendation!

I really need a place where I can take USED M's that Im considering buying for a nuts/bolts inspection to make a smart used purchase.

Who do you use now?

:I bought the car in another state and paid the local BMW dealership about $100 to check it out. Definitely a worthwhile practice considering the tires needed replacement (cupping), rear shocks were worn, and drive belts needed replacement -- these are things I never could have been sure of otherwise. Plus, it gave me room to negotiate. Here in Atlanta I have had my car serviced at Chris BMW and must say that I was impressed with their work, consideration, and timeliness. I would trust their judgement as far as inspecting a used M3.

If you have any other questions, feel free to email me.
