shes brand new off the floor.
Got ur basics like Nav and sensors. Wasnt sure if there was a "must have"

Taking it for a drive this afternoon and see how it goes.
Let me know your thoughts...... :thumbsup:

Manual or DCT?

P.S. Make sure you take it through some twisty stuff though, as it will give you a much better idea of what it's all about :mischief:

There have been a plethora of "limited" edition m3s recently in time for the run out of the model! Most of them all come fairly well optioned with exception of silly extras like frozen paint (I'm not a fan!)

Definitely take it to twisty roads! Regardless of pure edition or not, they're very well balanced cars and might be the last v8 ever in an m3!

No doubt a lovely car but you would want to buy it for the right price now that the lesser F30 model is out and about.  IIRC, the Pure edition is a lower spec M3 without xenons etc - is that right?

The Pure Edition was introduced at the beginning of the year [2011] in both coupe and sedan forms. Limited to just 100 units, even split by body style, only 20 sedans are still available.

...

So there was a cleansing of some of the M3s more extravagant features such as full leather seats, adaptive headlights, front seat heating and Harman Kardon surround sound audio systems to bring a saving of $17,300 over the regular M3 sedan (to $135,000) and another five-figure paring of the regular coupe price (by $10,000 to $148,300).

The limited edition does gain some aesthetic additions to distinguish it from regular M3s mainly dark body parts such as black high-gloss for the 19-inch alloy wheels and bonnet louvers, and dark chrome for the double-kidney grille, side vents and exhaust pipes.

Edition 2 comes with pretty much the same stuff as the standard M3 coupe. This has everything accept the upgraded sound.
