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.
I test drove sedan 6MT. It doesn't ride and handle like BMW but you get a lot of car for $ (it has LSD for example) and reliability is high. Very hard to find loaded 6MT.
