keep the ///M or get another car.

1. Its stupid to get a newer M3 for a lot more... (yes you are right) too much money for the same shit.

2. 1M still feels the same thing but just a tad bit smaller. i say nah pick another.

3. 2011 Corvette (NICE but so cheap on the inside all plactic cheap) well its american.

4. Caryman S. this was my 1st choice and glad did not get it. well heres why. (Coming from a 2 seater thought the cayman was a replacement to my old car... realized after test driving it, i just didnt feel it. nice and fast for a small car but im pretty sure you will regret it. i suggest getting the CAYMAN R a little more but i think its worth it.

5. CTS-V hmmmm, it is an eye candy piece also a very powerful car. no comments so far on this cause i have not test drove it yet. although i have seen the interior and damn, its probably got the best interior from all the list you have.

6. something to think about.... 2011 GTR not for everyone. from the selections you have it looks like you like cars that are nice to look at... doesnt seem like performance is what you are after. anyways thought id include this. (but i suggest to test drive one and see for yourself before making the decision its a long shot cause it seems like nissan is not in your blood of cars. LOL

1. Keep my 2008 M3
Pros: $33k, Love it, Handles great, Familiar
Cons: iDrive just went out ($??), Spendy maintenance, not new

2. 2011 M3
Pros: Love it, Maintenance and Warranty, handles great, possible collector car, new
Cons: $68k, A lot of $ for the same car I've had the last 3 years

3. 2011 Corvette Grand Sport
Pros: Fast, Looks good (imho), cheap to maintain
Cons: $68k decently equipped, old man car stigma

4. 2008 Corvette
Pros: $36k, Fast, cheap to make stupid fast
Cons: pre-owned, old man car stigma

5. 2011 CTS-V Coupe
Pros: Looks Great (imho), Different, stupid fast
Cons: $68k, Not sure about handling, cadillac

6. 2011 Cayman S
Pros: Looks good, Handles great, different
Cons: $66k, slow, douche stigma

7. 2008 Cayman S
Pros: Price, Looks good, handles great, different
Cons: spendy to maintain, slow, douche stigma

8. 2012 1M Coupe
Pros: Price, Handles well, different
Cons: slow, ugly

What do you guys think? I'm open to other suggestions also.
$33k to buy your M3? WOOOOW. Its a $40k+ car. Buy it.

Keep your M3 and end this thread. its madness to consider those 2 porches, much less a 1M! My friend was about to consider getting one, needless to say he is thankful for me talking him out of it and putting him back on the path of an M3.

Solution: Used 2010 or 2011 M3 with under 9k miles, there out there. Save 20gs and be happy with warranty and new ride. Or keep your car for that 33k, cant go wrong with the M.

Either The 2011 Cayman S or the 2011Corvette Grand Sport, or the 2011 CTS-V. Can't go wrong with any of these.

Silly comment OP about the 1M being slow. Sorry.

For $500, the 1M tuned is faster than the M3 and Cayman S.
