    Hi Guys,

    Been through the pre-post necessities...just found this Forum, usually I'm on m3forum.net, but that a US forum so nice to find a UK one!

    I own a '97 Euro M3 Evolution 3.2 ~ 321hp, dove on estoril.

    Absolutely love everything about it! That's about it for now, dropped some pics in too - not great but pics they are nonetheless!

    Enjoy! 2:

    There's quite a few M owners yes! I may possibly be one in the nearing future.....

    There are some mechanics on the forum as well and many know all the BMWs inc. M models inside & out should you have any questions or problems etc.

    That's right I knew what I wanted to went for that the prices really came down as well, it was a part-x at a stealers so knocked them down on it.

    The heated seats have been awesome this winter!!! The rears are awesome too, I love how if you lock the car with the key and hold it in the lock position all the windows and roof close....wish the fob done that!

    Also the way the windows slightly drop when you open the door then pop back up when you close it!!!

    One thing tho....my data port cap is missing :( I took it off once to reset the service level indicators after I'd done an oil service and then in my mad enjoyment of getting the reset right completely forgot about the cap and haven't seen it since!!! If anyone's got one kicking around - let me know - pretty please!

    I have the 2 button (red/grey) 3G EWS factory (although I've read it maybe dealer installed) cat1 alarm..... why you ask hombre?

    EDIT: missed the key part out, it's just a normal key with a little button that has a light, alarm not controlled by it...hth
