Goodbye MB!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a c230k sedan which the lease was going to be up in oct 08.. I just wanted to share the good news and tell you all that i will be dropping the car off at CARMAX tonight they are buying it from me.

Now i still have my e36 325is with a sh&t load of miles as a daily driver, but i've been just browsing around for used bmw's. And i think i found 2 great potentials , one is a 330ci for 31k CPO w/zhp. and the other is a 02 m3 for 34k no CPO. what do you guys think about the prices on the cars?

Pros and Cons please....
Thank You....

I will never buy a new car again. And if i lease again its going to be something that too expensive to maintaine. Porsche is a dream car of mine and that will probably be a lease for me in the future..

M3 new lets say 60k 2-3 years later CPO 45k why not? I'd rather use that left over 15k for insurance, gas, mods, etc.....

Hey man you grew up faster than i did. I thought i would never lose the balls of steel, i would drive and cut through traffic and other bullshit but after becoming a business owner some shit is not worth it. I'd rather have a nice car that can go fast if i want to take it to the track or open highway. And i'd rather save this extra 2k for workers comp and that 3k for repairs etc.. Sooo a 4 year old in good shape anything is better than a brand new one.

If the dealer gives me a good deal i'll jump on the 330ci or the m3 if not 325is ftw.................

I would keep looking for a better deal. Someone I know just got a pristine 04 M3 vert CPO with 29k miles for ~$38k.

I've heard good things about Carmax. Anyway... have you looked at Carmax for M3s? They seem to have several in that price range.
