I miss my 08 m3 sedan. Yeah, I let it go kinda cheap, more of a wholesale value than retail, but engine service soon light, possible wheel bearing noise from rear, no warranty....56k miles, and new brakes needed in less than 5,000 miles.

550i is as big as a tank. My wife loves it, and it was going to be her car. We are kinda sharing it before her 328i vert goes back. It's good that I can go somewhere with her and not be in the mood to drive and then she is able to drive because my M3 was a 6mt. Maybe shoulda waited till her lease was up before getting the new car, and also looked at a new 328 sedan, or 335 for her.

Going to drive my 03 S2000 more, and thinking after my wife's 328i goes back, maybe putting some more street friendly tires on my 10 GT3, as the GT3 is under warranty until 03 of 2014 and I don't even have 5000 miles on the Porsche. Needless to say that the Porsche and the 550i are like polar opposites. Also don't want the value of the GT3 to tank by putting too many miles on it.

Gotta calm down with cars going kinda crazy. New 5 series are BIG
The '03 S2k is fun, but it doesn't quite compare to the M3. I suspect that you might miss it, but congrats on the new wheels.
