Default Yossha's 2006 IB Dove M3 ZCP SMG

The e46 M3 has been one of my favorite cars since the day it came out. This was the car that was on my wall in High School. I thought I would never have the opportunity to practically own one until recently. When the dream of owning an e46 M3 became a reality I researched and searched for months to find the example that was right for me. For two months straight I researched and did my due diligence on a specific car.
On May (Friday) the 13th I made it official and few from Phoenix, Arizona to Denver, Colorado purchase my 2006 BMW ZCP in Interlagos blue with SMG and Dove grey interior. The car is in excellent condition has a great record history, super low miles (53,XXX) and had just had its inspection 2.

I left the bank and headed to Pikes Peak outside of Colorado Springs to take the M up the world-famous hill climb to the summit at over 14,000 feet. Over the next two days, I drove the car back home through Colorado, Utah, and Arizona making stops at the Arches National park outside of Moab and to Monument Valley and driving through towns like Fairplay, Breckenridge, Vail, and Flagstaff.

I'm amazed at how smooth the car is. Other than those reversible mods I plan on enjoying this car as BMW intended.

Blackstone oil report came back
Report Summary:
Lead (from bearings) was our main point of concern in the previous report and we're happy to see
it at just 6 ppm, which is right in line with universal averages. Copper, on the other hand, is steady and still
shows excess brass/bronze wear. If any work was done since the last sample, then copper may just be
from new parts wearing in. The other wear metals are fine after 3,049 miles of oil use. As a reminder,
universal averages show typical wear for the S54 engine after ~4,800 miles on the oil. The 1.0% fuel isn't a
concern. Overall, things look a little better.

10/1/2019
Took to BMW North Scottsdale
62,354-mile oil change
subframe dropped and inspected for cracking, everything looks great, no cracks, suspension torqued to spec

Blackstone oil sample sent in... waiting to see if metals go up.
