Default New (to me) M3

So I caught wind of an M3 for sale - and this past week I drove up to Lodi, NJ to buy it. Guy was going through a messy split and had 18k in wedding debt so I offered him what I thought was fair and bought it.

Specs: 98, 61k miles, 5sp, bone stock vert with all maintenance records



Anyway, this just happens to coincide with me losing interest in my miata. I put it up on craigslist and as of today it's sold. I'm probably going to buy another miata I'm sure, as soon as another one peaks my interest. I've been battling the idea of selling for awhile now and I just can't justify not garaging the M. I suppose this means I need to join bimmerforums or some equivalent, but I'll still hang around here of course for the free reacharounds.

My buddy just got a '98 M3 coupe. Great car, great power, great handling, great noise. I can't believe they are so cheap now.
