P.S. When I jump back in the M3, it's like falling in love all over again haha.
I test drove a lot of cars older cars with higher milage before making this decision and my concern was exactly what you described - that I could pay less for something older with higher miles and out of warranty with the risk that the car would need greater maintenance at a greater cost down the road. That's why I went with this CPO. And like you said, I can get my dogs in there without worrying, and I can get my daughter in and out of the back seat more easily. It just seemed to make sense.

Also, sweet E30 in your sig pic.
