BMW M3 Edition

Even though I'm a Porsche guy, the BMW will always have a special place in my heart. My first was a 1995 BMW 318i (bought for me by my folks) and my second was a 2000 BMW 325ci (bought with my own hard earned cash). I loved both cars and thought real hard about buying an M3 after I traded in the 325ci before settling on a Porsche. With another trade-in likely in the next 12 months, BMW has just made the decision a wee bit harder with the introduction of the limited M3 Edition. Most of the changes relative to the "base" M3 are cosmetic: bespoke paint schemes (Alpine White Non-Metallic, Black Non-Metallic, Dakar Yellow Non-Metallic, and Monte Carlo Blue Metallic), black-finished twin kidney grille, fender vents, mirror caps, darkened chrome quad exhaust tips, and a few interior tweaks. The non-aesthetic changes include a slightly lower suspension and special 19-inch double-spoke wheels. The M3 edition will be in dealers starting in July and will only be available for six months.

Now we're cooking with hot truffle oil!! This would be smoking, and you it gives you a bit of trunk room for the golf clubs and weekend bag when driving up to LA.
