    Hi again, I say again because last time I was here I had a 330 Clubsport, I unfortunately had to sell it as I started commuting quite a distance every day, fortunately my commuting days are over having changed job, and so I felt that it was time to treat myself!!!

    I just bought an '04 Estoril Blue M3 Coupe, only 25k on the clock, HPI clear and authentic mileage, 2 owners and full BMW services history, its also absolutely pristine!

    Unfortunately it hasn't got the Sat Nav unit nor Harmen Kardon audio installation, bit gutted about that but hoping that its a retro fit possibility? Otherwise, is there any way to get an Auxiliary input into the BMW Business CD/radio unit?

    This is literally my dream car, since being tiny I can remember seeing the M3 on Top Gear and wanting one every since, and compared to the 330CI, the power is just incredible!!

    SMG2 took a while to get to grips with, it took me a short time to realise that I had to nudge the small gearstick into 'D' mode for it to change gears for me

    Finally as with most new M3 owners, I wanted to try Launch Control just once! But it just doesn't work, is it true that Euro models are limited to a certain number of uses? I press the DSC button once to illuminate the orange warning light, I flick the gear stick to 'S' and then hold it forward, I blip the throttle and expect it to hold revs but it doesn't?

    Here's some pics!

    Oooo and just read many posts about resetting the SMG by pulling both paddles towards me whilst in neutral and driving 40+ mph - apparently a must for anyone that has just bought a new car, I'll give it a go!

    Hello mate!

    Very Very attractive car you have there, looks just like mine except it's an m3 not a CS.

    Love the estoril blue and it's good to have another fan of the CS spoiler on board

    I'm here for a good time not a long time
