No - but i've always liked that interior combo. Brakes look upgraded and you've got M Audio subs with that one - nice! Check to see if it has the hands-free bluetooth too - a lot of the last production month '03's had it.

Good luck Cab!

It is my favorite of the sport interior combos. I'm just not looking to fly to North Carolina on a chance if I don't have to!

I was looking for a weekend M3 vert, this dealer listed one on autotrader.com, I took a ride up to Hickory which is about an hour or so from Charlotte. Needless to say the car was sold and had been sold for several months. I feel this dealer keeps car listed on autotrader.com to keep activity up and once you call about a certain car that is no longer available, they will try and talk you into another car. They tried to talk me into a 325i vert, which I was only interested in the M3.

My point is....call first to make sure the car is available.

Evolve Headers & Race Cats, Evolve Stage 3 Tune, Bilstein PSS9 Coilover, Complete PowerFlex Race, Recaro XL Profi seats, Brembo F&R BBK, PFC 01 Pads, E60 SSk w/ZHP Knob, Slimmbones Open Lower Grill with Open Brake Ducts, UCC Twin Disk Clutch, Umnitza Projector 30 with Predator Orion V2 LED Angel Eyes, Eihach F/R Anti Sway Bars, SuperSprint X-Pipe, 19" BBS LM's, 18"x10" Apex ARC 8's Track, CAI, ACS Splitters, Valentine V1 Hardwired, Ultimate Pedals.

Thanks for the heads-up!

My experience is similar to CMBeamerM5 with these guys. Saw a nice red M5 there, but by the time I called about it, it had sold. 6, yes, SIX months later it was still on the web site, so I thought, hey, maybe it got traded back in? I emailed, and he said it was sold. I asked what was up with him keeping these sold cars on his web site, and he said that it generates traffic. No argument there, but I find it a bit annoying. All the more reason to call or email before driving up to see a car.

HTH,
Michael

2003 Sterling Gray/Caramel sold, now living in VA
2000 Jet Black/Black sold, it's back in Illinois, where it came from
2003 LMB M5 R.I.P. 01/02/08
2008 Namibia Orange R1200GS (hence the handle "Beemer Guy") also sold

Currently driving Chevy's (Holden's) interpretation of an E39 M5

Nice - I'm actually seeing the same thing here locally. A car I drove last week is now sold, but several days later it's still up...of course, SIX MONTHS is pretty extreme and probably speaks to their overall business practices as well.
