Beginning of a new chapter

I have officially retired my 6mt E92 328i.

I picked up the car brand new back in Aug 08 with 17miles. It has been a pretty good 70k mile journey. The car was low optioned and after a year I started itching for something different. I was able to hang on until this past Thursday.





I traded in my car for a 2010 E90 DCT M3 with every single option minus the enhanced premium sound. WOW it's night and day aside the from the brutal performance standpoint.






This last picture was taken after I mounted the SF-71's to one side of the car. The offsets were not aggresive enough even with a rear 12mm spacer.




I still have my style 197s and wheel and tire combo SF-71 matte black 235/265 19" +35 offset for sale. PM me for more details.

Amazing upgrade! I want to do this down the road...e92 m3s have been my dream for ever since I got into cars.

I'm surprised you didn't change up the color on the trade! Clean black cars are extremely sexy tho canny lie.

Congrats!!!

That 328 was bad ass, but the E90 M is just a dream.

Looking to upgrade my 328 as well in a few years. Gotta get an E92 V8 with Eisenmann race before I'm 30.. lol
