I said I wouldn't EVER own another black car...

Then stumbled upon this at a local JY
burned e46 m3 with 6 speed manual 105k.... $540 after taxes

Did you just say $540 after taxes? For a complete s54 and gear box? That's just theft. Check out r3vlimited for technical advise and wiring. That's were all the s5x engines disappear in e30 engine bays.

**** you got the steal of a lifetime on that motor and trans. Also dont lose those center caps on the ronals. They are quite hard to come by.

Nice to see CJ's shell is coming back to life.
I still need to pick it up from him. I wasnt expecting to buy another car while at the show... It will have to wait two more weeks. I'm going hunting this week to Idaho.
