"Down grade" from a BMW, suggestions? choices?

I am considering parting ways with my car.

On one hand, BMWs are my "dream car" and have always wanted one, however at this point, I think I may want a house more. I "only" have a 328 and an m3 is my true dream car.

My warranty is up in about 3 months and don't know if I feel like dealing with unexpected repairs or expected - I.e. the water pump

It's an 08, 65k on it.

I may keep it and risk it or get an extended warranty but I drive a lot for work so it might not be worth it in the long run.

I own it, well 2 years left oh payments, but i am not upside down on my loan or would be for some time.

Long story short...
if you have to get rid of your BMW for a "lesser" car, what would you go with?


I have always been into sporty cars, had an Mitsubishi eclipse when I was 16 with rims and a kit, then a Nissan se-r. Always have had a true manual trans including my BMW, would like a somewhat "fun to drive car"

Nothing like a Bimmer though.
