I have been lookin into getting an M3 since my SLK has been stolen. Since I dont want and really cant wait 3 or 4 monthst to get a car I have been lookin around the Toronto area for dealers that have new M3's on their lots. I dont want a slighty used, would rather get a new one, so I know its been broken in properly and pluse I want to do it myself. Since most dealers around here are insisting list price, what extras should I ask for if Im payin full price. I was thinking along the lines of wheels locks, plus all season mats, plue the OEM alarm with the motion sensor installed, that sort of thing. Anyone else ever get these with purchase and is the OEM alarm upgrade worht the cost, Im really going to try to get them to throw it in. The car Im really lookin at right now is a new 2003, silver with blank interior, 19" rims. lumbar adjustable seats, rain sensor, they are askin roughly $77000CA for it. Thanks

Im not really going to mod up an M3. not really much esle to do to it, except little things.
That's what everyone says. If you're willing to change even the slightest thing you'll end up doing plently more.

Sorry to hear 'bout your SLK. I would get the factory 19". You'll always get new wheels and they seems like an expensive option. Keep your stock 18" and put snows on them (you probably need snow in T/O) sell the stock 18" pilots and hunt for 19" wheels/ tire combo. That'll drop the price to roughly 74500. Try to get mats if you can ( I should've held out:cry: ) My dealer won't go much below MSRP.

19's are nice.... get the OEM ones, rather easy to sell should u want to upgrade to an aftermarket set.

17's for snow, i believe they will clear the front brakes. 18's in snow would suck, and the cost of 18inch snow rubber is a lot, rare tires
