The buyer isn't that "Glenn's car collection" dude is it?

I don't recall you posting a lot of love for this car while you owned it. I have a feeling you'll think fondly of this car once it's gone, but will have move on fairly quickly.

But what do I know.

Yup, it's him. He actually found me at a Cars & Coffee two weeks ago. He was waiting for me at my driver's side as I pulled in to park and pretty much offered to buy it immediately. Cara and I were chatting on the way that I might get some offers on the smurf. Well, took not one minute but ten seconds!

My serial car buying is a small subset of his, but being in the same general area, we've met/interacted before. On planet-9 (back then caymanclub) he wanted to find/listen to an aftermarket cayman exhaust sometime around 2011/2012, so I took him for drive with my Remus 3.4.

Just checking his videos now...

I don't know about that. I use mine every day for taking the kid to and from school and commute to work. I suppose if I had a Porsche in the garage next to it I may change my mind though.

Hah, that's too funny. I hate his videos but he seems like a nice enough guy.

If you sell to him, the car would live on in his videos. Seems like it could be kind of cool.

I've cancelled the sale. I can't let it go just yet.

Equ ... I totally get it. I have thoughts of selling my R8 to get a 2014/2015 with the S tronic transmission and I just can't get myself to do it. There is something about my car in my eyes I just love which is how you feel about your M3.

Meanwhile your M3's value isn't changing so why not keep it and one day if you decide to sell it down the road you'll feel more comfortable.

You probably feel a renewed love for it now

Good decision. I regret selling my 2006 M3C.

Heh. Good choice, either way, but I'm glad you decided to keep her.
