I'm with you. I notice that each time I see a photo of the speedo. I wonder if they'll change it for the US market because that's a bit ridiculous for driving on the street.

Before you make comments like this it would be a good idea to read up a bit.

Most of the UAE's wealth has not been generated by oil (which only one emirate/state has in "abundance"). UAE's success has been based on free trade policies, the construction boom and as a shipping and airline hub.

USA buys most of its oil from Saudi Arabia and will soon be siphoning the rest from Iraq. tch tch tch.

There are already companies who have 'hacked' into GTR's ECU and, are providing chips for more hp/Tq.

Doing alright. Planning to sell the e92 in a couple of months, AGMC service is getting bad and there are too many small issues with the car which keep cropping up. So now that you are not getting the GTR what are you picking up - I recommend the new M3 DCT.

Man....Sad to hear that. I thought AGMC were cool but anyway...bad luck bro. Anyway look at the bright side....I heard that the 335i has great re sale value in UAE. Who knows maybe you will get a offer .

Man, I would love a DCT M3 but Zo6 looks like a big big bargain to me. +M3 has a long long (I mean long) waiting list.Anyway, I want to experience the push rod 505hp and when I get bored with it....I will think about the M3.

BTW, what are you replacing your 335i with?

Yeah the 335 has really good resale here and since the prices have gone up by $10K in a year, that helps too.

Come on, the M3's waiting list is only 9 months long. Its not that bad...

I don't want to spend as much money on a car anymore (buying a place and just ordered a 650 for the missus) and I test drove an LR2 and really liked it. thinking about that seriously since then we have a sports car and a SUV.

BTW - I saw a used M3 with 900 kms on it for Dhs 320K. Grey with red interior. a good deal in my opinion.

Why don't you go for a Z06?

Man, if your in for a property, do it quickly. The prices are rising up all the time. My dad says that it will fall but it doesn't look like it.

If your in for a Villa, look in Arabian ranches. My dad just got a house for Dhs7million over there (Around 13000sq-ft total area). You need contacts, let me know.

About your car choice for your "missus", I thought it should be the other way round. It should be you getting the 650 and she goin in for the LR2. Anyway, why don't you go for a smaller engine in the 6series like the 630. Most of the girls I know never even press the whole accelerator.
And for you bro, test drive the Mazda CX-9. I read great reviews about it on american websites.

About my car choice, I think the M3 is overpriced. As I said before, I think the
Zo6 is a bargain and I think I will go with it. I'm waiting for this colour (Cyber Gray Metallic) to be available along with these rims

Good luck with your car and property bro
