Well, I think the time has come. I've been all over the map from keeping my current lease, to buying an E39 M5, to looking at used E92 M3s, to Audi, to nothing at all.
So, I'm looking at this...
E92 M3 - 49,495 is what I have for ED wholesale.
Interlagos Blue - $500
M-DCT - $2640
Alarm - $365
Heated seats - $455
Carbon trim - N/C
Premium - $1820
Tech - $2960
Enhanced sound - $1730
Assist - $685
iPod/USB - $365
Smartphone - $135
Maybe or maybe not throw in the sunroof...hard decision there.
I think that was it. Price incl. destination and guzzler is $62,910. So, based on everyone aiming for at most $1k over invoice, looks like $63,910 if not less after all's said and done. Unless I'm missing something and it should be higher or lower than that, that's what I'm going to shop around with.
Lease is up in May so I'm going to hopefully be ordering this pretty soon here.
Anxiously waiting to join the ranks.
