Should I pull the trigger

Hi,

I've always wanted a white M3 with red interior. However, only until now I'm able to afford one. But since no more allocations in Canada, there's only one white M3 with all options in 6 MT. It is mineral white with black interior.

In terms of pricing, I got $1100 with tax included for 4 yr financing with 8K downpayment and $33000 balloon amount at the end.

Do you think I should go for it ( I have a 2008 535i now) or just wait till 2015 to get the M4?

Please advice.


Thanks

What about leasing it for 3 years then getting the new version when your lease expires. That's what made the most sense for me. I figure in 3 years the M 4 should be dialed in, and by then the tuners will have cracked the DME and tunes should be out. If the N54 and n55 tunes are an indication should be at least 60 whp from just a tune.

I think that was a finance plan and not a lease

My bad.

My 2011 was a buy at 77otd and it was 834 a month at 2.9% with 15k down and 25k balloon. Which I seem to think was a crap deal.

If you really want the V8, look for someone selling a FR interior or ask around in the forums if someone is willing to trade for the black. I have seen a few interior swap threads on here occasionally... especially with the guys that strip the car down for track use. And since the price of the car is dropping, youll prob see more folks buying them for track purpose only.

Otherwise, wait for the next gen...

The poster references a balloon payment at the end. If so, sounds like Select Financing vs. traditional. Leasing could be a better option, if there is interest in the M4.

If i'm understanding your post correctly,

you're paying $1100*48 = $52800

+ $8000 down = $60800... and you have $33000 balloon left...

$93800 on a M3 seems a little steep even after the finance charges.
