C63 is a lemon, what's next?

I owned an 08 335 Coupe as well, that was great. My C63 I have had for a little less than a yr that is being Lemon'd as we speak..SO

M3 Coupe?
Porsche Cayenne GTS?
Jag XF-R?

or the Porsche dealer has an 09 Carrera S with 240miles on it LOADED for 88k. Some guy bought it on a Friday and brought it back Tuesday because his wife made him get an S-Class.

Ulitimately I always lease, but seems that financing might not be a bad idea.

I would pick the Carrera S first, but I would be leary about someone bringing the car back. In CA, there is no cool off period. Second choice would definately be the M3 coupe! Why is Cayenne one of your choices? Do you need an SUV? Jag looks nice but beyond that, meh.

Well, the Carrera was special ordered in blue with black interior, nav, heated seats, PDK transmission and etc. The car dealer is affiliated with Benz dealer..soooo

I just like the cayenne...so comfy..the GTS is a bad truck..lol.

you're in the M3 forum and asking M3 owners.
You already know the answer but i dont see the point having 335i coupe and M3 coupe same time so.. my pick will be 4 door M3 or 911S.

If you do like the Cayenne then ... go w/ that.

In a different vein: 997.2 S or M3 (if it were me choosing).

Also have to ask: whazzup w/ C63?

Ya. If you do go for a M3, avoid the M-DCT. Nothing but trouble.
