M3 Replacement/Endras Experience

So the M3 was traded in to David Kim @ Endras about 2 weeks ago, and we placed an order for a White X3 M-Sport.

My experience with David Kim at Endras has been the best purchasing experiences thus far. I must have bugged the living hell out of him with random questions, but he was helpful every single time. We went back and forth between the F10 and F25 decision, and he just kept helping us look for the perfect one. I was absolutely adamant on some of the options we wanted in the X3 since it's going to be a long term purchase. He located a car at another dealer and quickly worked his magic to trade, and redirect to their possession. Thanks again to David for all his help.

TL;DR - Most painless experience for me, don't hesitate to buy from David Kim @ Endras

Impression on the F25 X3 35i thus far: It drives way better than the E70 X5 4.8i ...heads up display is awesome! The SUV handles pretty well for it's weight and nature. The new keys are enormous.
Option List: Technology, Premium, Exec, M-Sport(2012), BMW Apps, Neveda Leather, Brushed Aluminum Trim, Storage Compartment Package, Heated Rear Seats, Heads-Up Display.

Here are some pics.

Most of the parts sold within 1-2 days of posting. It's been almost 2 weeks since that thread went up. There's some stuff left, and some stuff I'm holding for my friends but that's about it.

Injured my knee, which was why my M3 had to go in the first place. Couple of months to recover, so I'll wait till spring comes around for something to truly replace it.

I think you should consider the C63 AMG Coupe Regular and/or Blackseries

I've considered the C63BS but I want to wait for more info on the North American version. I'm not ready to give up driving manual despite how much faster the dual clutch versions are. There's really only 1 logical step up from the M3 in that direction.

It is on the train the ETA is the 12th.I went for the Eco-Boost this time instead of the 6.2.I love the 6.2 but the market has really embraced the the 3.5 TT Eco Boost.It will be quite interesting to see the fuel milege difference in real life useage.

I remember reading an article where they compared the 5.0L Coyote to the 3.5 Eco-boost, it was definitely interesting. I imagine the only advantages the 6.2 has over the 3.5 is sound and towing capacity?
