    Welcome, Mike, To The BMW CCA!

    You have certainly come to the right place for everything BMW! My Fellow Members and Staff are always here to answer your questions, share a story or two, and enjoy the passion we all have that is BMW.

    I would recomend bookmarking Real OEM (BMW)-Click Here as an excellent source of schematics and parts list breakdowns for your BMW. If there is something you need to order.. you can pull the OEM part number here and order it up at either your local BMW Center (Dealership) or, for example, Pelican Parts-Click Here.

    If anything comes up don't hesitate to ask. Good Luck and Best Wishes!

    -Michael

    Hurricanes are the official minor league squad for the NFL. BTW, I tried out Bavarian Car Care in the Kendall area off of US1 (South Dixie) about 6 years ago while on vacation and they were very professional and honest. Have you ever tried them? I will be moving in the Orlando area but have tons of relatives all over Miami. Happy motoring.

    i haven't tried them.. but have called them and seemed very helpful. I try to do most of my own work due to the high cost of labor. i have a buddy who also has a 97 m3 and he has experience from a 95 m3 he had and did all mechanical work to it. he also owns a transmission shop here in miami. He guides me through just about everything and does a lot of the work

    Welcome to the forums!


    I have to say, I'd feel pretty weird getting out during a traffic jam to take pics. :eek:

    Did someone take that for you? I love the color; it's either Estoril Blue or Technoviolet for me if I had a choice at an M3. :D

    you guys want to laugh alittle well here it goes.......... i bought the car about the beginning of january this year and i was driving it down from sunrise,FL i had the fan blade broken on it when i bought it, fairly good price for a car with no paint work and 146,000 miles > $7800< so i decided to drive it down i figured hey what the heck as long as i dont hit traffic i should be fine. Well lucky for me i had my wife and baby in the car in front of me when traffic hit and my car started to over heat :eek: what a bummer i started laughing cause i was like how would i explain this to my bmw buddies.... i just bought a car and it over heated the first time i drove it lol. so yeah i went over to my wifes audi called my cingular road side and waited for the flat bed to pick her up.... thats when i had to listen to my girl talking about how her audi was better than my new bmw!!!!! I ALMOST RAN INTO TRAFFIC... BUT DECIDED TO TAKE PICS WHILE I WAS STRANDED.... i couldnt listen to my girl anymore blabbing about her audi not to mention the baby screaming!!!!!!!

    Did it go into the red? I am sure the car is fine now. Yeah, my wife made fun of me because my 92 535i that I had broke down once, maybe twice :) and she would blab how her Corolla was always reliable, which it always was. However, I was able to force her to trade it in on a 528i sport and then sell that for a 2003 325xi. As soon as I get new bimmer pics up, I will post them. For now, my son is up. BTW, that is a good price for the M3. Sunrise is in Broward right? I used to live in Pembroke Pines/Cooper City for a while......and also in the Kendall area.

    Time for you to make her trade in her Audi for the blue n white. Are you going to spoil your child into BMW? I have already. 15 months and he points at BMW's........He will get my 87 528e when he turns 15.

    That is cute. Thank GOD we don't have minivan/mom cars. It just makes me scratch my head....why do couples have to sell their two door car(s) (not just bimmers) and buy a minivan when you don't need all that room IF you are only going to have one, maybe two children? The child seat fits nicely in the E39 and the E46. I bet you have a bit of a hard time getting her in the back seat on your two door M3, but hey, there is room and she loves it and thats all that counts.
