Keep the M3 V8 or switch to a M4 6 with turbo ...
My two cents (Canadian
) ... good luck !
BTW ... I so agree with jdogg2000
... I would never pick up a first production year again from BMW I did on the sDrive Z4 35i 2009 and got burned badly by both rear wheels cracking on me during a cross country drive (Ontario to California and back). It was very disappointing the way BMW handled that issue on the 296 wheels on that Z4 (wheels cracked on many other Z4's and now have been redesigned stronger). So stay clear of first production year. My Z4 disappointment got me back into the M3 ... lets not talk about how many dollars I wasted
on e46 to a e89 and back to e92.
Thanks for the advice pal. I'm happy with the offer I got as well. The dealership only offered me $34k for my 911. Its in mint condition and only 16,000 miles. Regards.
