Owning one, and having 792AWHP, it isn't a small amount of cash to get to that point and becomes considerably less comfortable to drive for long distances or every day. Don't get me wrong, stock power levels the thing was an awesome DD, though it got more attention in my small town than I needed. It was certainly nice to get back into something at the end of the day that was still quick, but wasn't as attention grabbing or harsh to drive.
They are very nice and extremely capable cars for the money, but as others have said, for the price you are looking at for one, either new or used, you can find some things that are/aren't BMW, though the getting to 800+ makes that list a little smaller.
