Little Brother

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I just picked up an E46 325i, 2003 model, 5MT. This car is absolutely immaculate, and, the perfect little brother to my F10M.

I know it is not quite in the same league as some of the second cars on this forum, but, I can't believe how much I have been enjoying the manual transmission - it is epically fun. Shame we can only get our M5s down here in DCT.

Got a few pictures for you. A few mods in store too. Once my sons learn how to drive on a manual, I plan to start modding this car into a dedicated track weapon. A few years off though.

Next purchase will be an E28 M5 - when I can find the right one.

Nice. You should consider adding a supercharger to it.

I still have fond memories of my 330Ci Cabriolet. What I loved most - every time I needed to do a u turn, I'd drop the clutch and spin the car 180. The car was so predictable you could spin the car as a method of steering.

I had a titanium Silver E46 328 Coupe (while I waited for my M3 back then).

Loved it. I can't believe the condition of that car you found. It's only looks a year or two old. Best of luck!

PS. The M5 looks pretty menacing in the background!
