Hi Carl,

I bought mine to keep forever I hope.

I suspect I will want the new M3 too. I predict it's going to be better in most respects than the current E9X model, although the new turbo-engine's sound will never match that of the S65's.

However, I prefer not to buy cars in the beginning of their model cycle if possible, so if we pick up an F80, it will be at least 4-5 years from now. And my plan is to keep the E9X M3 too. It is the last of an era, a quarter century of naturally aspirated M3's setting the benchmark for its class.....
