    Hello all,

    Just thought I would say a quick hello again. I posted a few times over the past few months with regards to having an interest in E36 M3's. Well...I finally took the plunge and picked up a well cared for higher mileage '95 Avus Blue M3. It had been in the care of a BMWCCA member for the past ten years, so the higher miles does not bother me at all. Plus, every BMW fanatic that I've ever met has always said, "once they get past 150K...they're just getting broken-in."

    The car is an absolute dream. I plan on officially joining BMWCCA and look forward to participating in some of the great events that the club puts on.

    Regards,
    Joel

    I don't think joining is a plan now - looks like you're already a member.
    Nice find. Hope you enjoy it for all it's worth. :D

    az3579,

    You know...it's weird. For some reason the website has that BMWCCA Member insignia next to my sign-in name...but I've never paid for the membership. I only registered on the website for the forums. Strange, huh?

    Either way, it'll be sorted out on Monday. The enjoyment has already began. :D

    I'll post some pics as soon as I take some and figure out how to.

    Regards,
    Joel

    Here's some photos finally. You can see all the rough spots nice and clear. It's alright though. My M3 is not a showroom beauty queen. I love to drive it and it has been driven by it's previous owners (not into the ground though).

    Hope you guys enjoy!

    Even though it has its spots that need to be addressed, I LOVE this car. It is my dream car exactly how I would've purchased it new if I had that kind of money in high school. Avus Blue Metallic, dove gray interior, sport package, Motorsport wheels, 5 spd. What more you could you ask for?

    Congratulations on the purchase! I'm sure you already have many plans on what you would like to do with it but don't forget the most important one... driving the wheels off of it!

    :p

    BEAUTIFUL! I can't stand garage queens; they never get used. It may be higher mileage, but I think I can tell you from experience that high mileage doesn't stop these suckers! I've got 317 thousand of them to vouch for that. :D


    An Estoril, Avus, or Techno M3 is what I would like to have as well (preferably Techno with the light gray/whitish interior). I hope you enjoy it and drive it for all it's worth!

    TeamStowell - You hit the nail on the head. I plan on driving the beast as much as possible! :D I have a few mods in mind, however, I'm a big fan of keeping things as stock as possible. I'm a big fan of "sleeper" hot rods and the like. :D

    az3579 - You and I share the same sentiment. I never understood the concept of buying a car and then never driving it. I mean, I understand buying something like an Auburn or a Deuseneberg and never driving it...but an M3 was meant to be driven.

    Let the driving commence! :cool:

    I'm so jealous - I'll be joining you soon though! Perfect choice on the color.
