Torn between 3 Cars, Thoughts or Opinions?

Hey guys,

I am looking to buy a car, but I am torn between three cars. Which car do you think is the best option?

1. 2002 BMW M3 Convertible (Laguna Seca Blue/Gray Nappa Leather) - 20k Miles (Manual & Navigation)
2. 2007 BMW 328xi Coupe (Alpine White/Cream Beige Leather) - 26k Miles (Automatic & No Navigation)
3. 2007 BMW 328xi Coupe (Alpine White/Black Leather) - 46k Miles (Manual & Navigation)

The prices are basically the same for all three of these cars.
I like the design of the new coupe especially with MT and Navigation, but the car already has 46k miles on the clock.
The e46 M3, though it is 7 year old car, only has 20k miles and looks brand new. Not to mention, it is a M and has 333 HP. The only problem is LSB is a very bold color and look somewhat dated(?).

Anyways, share your thoughts or experiences. It would help me tremendously.

I owned a 325xi and it was kind of boring. If you dont mind that and want a high quality car and need the 4wd, go for #3. I dont think 46K is anything to worry about if it looks good and was cared for. I wouldnt do Auto, but thats personal preference..

I'd be tempted by that M3. Its clearly going to be a lot more fun to drive.

What about a 335i? 350z?

perhaps you should figure out if you want an automatic or manual car first?
that way you could eliminate the automatic 328.

Didnt the 328xi coupe ONLY come out in 2008???? Im fairly confident that this is the case.

I agree with the idea of picking the tranny you want. Also, I think the 328xi coupe came out as a 2007 but the 335xi coupe was a 2008
