Good luck getting the deal you want! As for color, I say Interlagos Blue or else Lemans Blue.
LMB IMHO is much better than IB

Well i hope they get you that deal, makes me want to trade my car in lol.

Did the GT-R dude ever get back at you?
Didn't email him yet as it's a weekend :P

But I think even with minimal down, the GTR will cost me about $1000/month

That's a good $200 more per mont... with 750-800 I'm already at my desired limit, if not exceeding it
Not matter how much I want a GTR and it's been my dream car ever since I drove it in Tokyo 3 years ago....

I should be a more responsible financial advisor and follow my own advice and wait...
the GTR has upkeep while the m3 will have very little
Have to consider all of that as well

I will still email him

If he can do, say, 3500 drive off and 800/month on the GTR... you can consider me sold lol
considering the new GTR is coming out in a few months... o you know the extra power and all... they might be wanting these 'old' GTRs out hehe

strange how they are similar price, but one lease rate is much higher. um...

But I plan to either drive the Z4, or get a M3 for 800/month lease (I showed why leasing is better than buying in this scenario previously in this thread).
Unfortunately, neither the GTR or the Porsche have amazing lease rates like the m3.

For the lease rate of a GTR/Porsche (which I've been quoted at about 1300+ for) I can pay the mortgage on a decent investment property...

Thanks for everyone's input on everything

It's all the due to the residual and money factor as well as the holiday cash

I'm more than happy with the Z4 and my mom with her SLK (until the next few months when her lease finishes)

but if we can lock in these great rates on a 83k car... and trade her SLK in with only a negative equity of about $500, it's worth it.

Hell, if i can get a private seller I may not even have any negative equity trading her car in

Mods done so far:
SmartTop
SmartTV
V1 Hardwire
Wind Deflector (can't really call it a mod.. but it's a 100% necessity IMO)

Mods planned 100% once broken in/have time:
Alpine HIDs
Pulleys
Filter
Coding to remove front amber
Coding to remove annoying gong
OEM Gloss Black Kidney grills (should arrive in a few days)
M3 lip spoiler painted Mineral White
Alexshop Rear view Camera (once you have it...can't back up without it lol)
Rims (looking into HREs, but need to sell the DPEs from my 335i first)

Maybe:
Tune
Exhaust (either full, or just X-pipe)
Sway bars

Friends telling me I should but I probably wont:
A drop (coils or springs)
(I had bad experience with coils on my e93 335...handled great, looked great, but hurt my back after 45 minutes of driving; the M3 with Comfort setting is great for hour+ trips [which I have actually done quite frequently since I got her due to the traffic] and the MDM with Sport is great in the canyons [not broken in but I just had to take her up Malibu cayons and PCH])

65% Residual, with a .0086 (if I remember correctly) Money factor
$82,575 MSRP
$1000 over invoice

$2000 drive off, $811/month

added tire and wheel insurance into the payment, it went up to 847
damn insurance was $1240

but since he showed me in writing it covers aftermarket wheels and tires, I took it.
Knowing it'll cover any rims/tires is good; replacing DPEs/HREs/BBS or whatever i get would be a nightmare if they got damaged
