If the sound and feel of that magical NA V8 doesn't truly pull at your heart and soul then go ahead sell the M3 now.

It all comes down to opportunity cost. And as such, there are a few aspects.

If driving the M3 still holds thrill and excitement, there's your opportunity. The cost is the proceeds you could invest and gain yearly returns. Keeping it purely for monetary purpose is simply not a good idea. But if the vehicle evokes emotion, that's a very powerful thing that perhaps can not be matched by numbers in a bank account.

Keep in mind, buying a car is a lot like dating. At first you go through the "honeymoon stage" where everything is just perfect. You fall in love. Once in love, things may progress and become stagnant, where things just feel normal. Right now you are in the "honeymoon phase" with your Tesla.

When you first bought your M3 I bet you felt like it was the most incredible machine, every drive put a smile on your face. After some time, it becomes normal. The same thing will happen with the Tesla. As this new technology progresses -- faster, better looking, and more advanced electric cars will enter the market and you will soon get bored of the Tesla. At that point, will you miss the M3?

Just some food for thought. Whatever you may choose, you can't really go wrong. Congrats on the Tesla!

My wife has been driving a Model S for the last few years, and while it is a great daily, it is sooooo boring to drive compared to my e92. Keep both.

If I had to sell my M3 for a Tesla it would have to be a 100D.
The Model 3 sucks, the interior is like an entry-level Korean car.
Sure it feels great to drive, the torque is instantaneous but the car is just damn ugly.

Keep the e93. It's your summer convertible.

Sell the ugly, lame Tesla and drive the M3. Also feel good knowing you aren't contributing the the future problem of battery disposal.

Derp

- you have the same volume of oil disposal (recycling really, see below) to deal with on an M3, plus low value lead acid batteries that are not particularly attractive to recycle because lead is cheap, as is sulfuric acid;

- gasoline vapor (look up what causes smog - nox plus stray (mostly from vehicle refueling and incomplete combustion and imperfect HC catalysis) hydrocarbons

- exporting emissions to power stations far away from population is a good thing for human health even if you’re using coal, and in CA, you’re mostly not;

- lifepo battery recycling is economically viable and happening now; and,

- Tesla batteries already reach 200,000 miles in fleet use, and that's the old design
