My M3 (E30) is now 25 years old. Here in Victoria I can fully register the car or use Classic car, limited use registration.
This is my 'cotton wool' keeper, so I only drive it on weekends and perfect weather.
Unfortunately for you your car is too 'young' to register here.

New member from Sydney, recently sold my E46 M3 and upgraded to an M5. Mates with Ben.

Hope to see this section grow with more M5 drivers in NSW.

haha glad you joined the forum. I saw that car and then it got taken off not long after. It looked like a good example and a good price too. How do you find it so far? Good buy or goodbye?

i had the car mechanically checked out. perfect. the previous owner was very fastidious with the maintenance. in the last 20k he spent $8k on general upkeep. its my first bmw. i love it! i have had window tint done, cut n polish, oem angel eye update, oem celis tail lights, carbon diffuser, wheels painted black with a slight shadow chrome, waitin on eisenmann race exhaust... should be here in a couple weeks. waitin on some other misc parts... badges etc.. in my opinion an excellent buy!! i have looking for almost a year, saw it on carsales and acted fast, even then it was almost too late. u have a m5 as well?

That's a lot of stuff done in a short period of time and a decent load of money too. You'll like the Eisenmanns, but I couldn't justify the price. JRobbo in Melb has them though but he's loaded

Where did you buy the headlights and tail lights and how much were they if you don't mind me asking. That's on my list of things to buy.

i bought them from schmeidmanns uk head lights n tail light were about $1100ish plus cutoms tax and import.. installed front and back in about an hour and a half. no prior experience. easy. had to splice 2 wires on drivers side headlights. passenger side was just plug it together. tail light required some holes drilled and a lil hammering on the metal work but overall very easy. really updates the look of the car. i spent a lot of time researching where to buy from. usa uses lhd units, aussie prices are crazy... this worked for me. plus i want only oem products on the car.
