2011 M3 vs 2011 335is

looked and drive this 2011 M3 nearby. $47K, nearly 50K miles, no warranty

I love my 335is w/ jb4, CAI, DP's, etc, but the handling of the M3 is phenomenal.
advertised with competition package.

Should I be considering this?

My 335is has 60K miles, no issues, great car!
Any car I buy will be a daily driver.

335 with no issues? That's a shocker.

Why NO Warranty?

Its at a BMW dealer and only 3 years old, it should be CPO, ask them why not.

I traded my 335is with dinan Stage 2 for my M3 so that's a no brainer but I wouldn't buy it without warranty.

I would insist that they CPO it. Then your good to go.

You should be able to find one with half the mileage for that price. I bought my 2011, loaded, with 12,000 miles three months ago for $53K.

Competition package? That seems to be key.

Cool, so I need to look for a better candidate?

I traded a 2012 Dinan 335is for a 2013 M3 DCT ZCP. I couldn't stand the is throttle response and the harsh suspension on the car. I guess I'm not a twin-turbo I-6 kinda guy.

335is


M3

Yes, every option except the electric rear sunshade. And I have seen similar cars in the last month in the $49k range.

I will keep my eyes open for a better candidate or modify my 335is suspension. Already have the power albeit not V8.

Have to say, I have a HUGE respect for the M3 feel and suspension! You guys have great cars!!

Lots of us came from modded 335's. Keep looking for a comp package DCT...there's a lot out there coming off lease that will be good CPO candidates.

Of course go for the M3. But I would ask why no warranty.

Wow how/where did you find that deal?? And was it CPO? I almost bought a CPO 2011 w/ 40k miles for $56k but decided to hold off. Thinking about doing lease takeover now

I just scored a 2008, fully loaded, 6MT with 42,000km on it (26,000miles) for $39,000 CDN. There are deals o' plenty out there for these equistite machines.

I also came from an 11.5 @ 123 mph highly modified 135i and there is no comparison, sure the M is slower but it totally outclasses the 135i in every other way. The V8 is just so ridiculous too, I love it.

I came from a FBO (- downpipes + Tune) 2009 135i that was stupid fast in a straight line, but the M3 is far superior in every aspect, not to mention the V8 sound with an aftermarket exhaust > BOV.
