traded her for this with 18k on the clock, clean records - just a small scrape/knock on the left underside and a little headlight flicker (all to be done by dealer under warranty) <p>Loved the R and it's quirkness but this is the car I wanted to be in. Thanks for the help in EVERYTHING guys. You know who you are <p><IMG SRC="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b22/forstho/M006.jpg" BORDER="0">

Merely pointing out that many R owners wanted the M but couldn't see ponying up the extra $$$. It's a great vehicle if you can make do with RWD year round.<p>There's a guy in the next development over who drives his M3 year round and swaps out for snows in the winter.
