Possibly making the switch!

Gentlemen,

I live over at 5 post due to me owning a 2012 535i M Sport. My work requires me to leave the country for extended periods of time and when I'm not at work I'm obsessing over cars. Back in August I went back to Florida on vacation and picked up my 535. While there I suffered a "drivetrain malfunction" and was forced to bring my car to BMW for service and while there they let me go for a spin in one of the M3's they had on the lot. Now I'm back overseas and that drive I took in the M3 haunts my nightmares..... Now don't get me wrong, the 535 is an amazing luxury machine but it seriously lacks power and when I take a corner at speed I need to clutch the wheel for dear life. Anyway, I contacted my guy over at BMW and he found a Alpine White 2011 E90 with black and red interior loaded with 14k miles. If I trade in the car (and give them an additional 4 grand) I'll be a proud new M3 owner. Basically I'm looking for all of you to tell me this is a great idea, I should stop thinking about it and just DO IT.

Wait. So you're willing to trade in on an older car in which you have no idea how it was taken care of? I would say pass. You already have a great car and that deal doesn't sound too good to me.

Well do you track your car or just drive it out on the streets?

Hey Rob can you explain what those rebates are?

Do you have to currently have a BMW to qualify for those rebates?

Thanks bro
