It is just not a smart move at all, especially with a new baby coming.
I counsel military folks on the pros and cons of these types of situations from E1-E7. And I see this come up weekly.
Thanks for your viewpoint, but the decision to go to three cars wasn't my question. When I bought the M3 it was with the intent to be a third car to be driven often but not daily, and even less so in cold months. While it's true that I probably don't "need" a third car, none of us here "need" an M3 either but we still own them. I do like your suggestion of a CPO X5 -- test-driving the diesel version on Friday.
