Only thing that would "force" me to sell is to put myself in a better situation financially for my family. (i.e. losing a job, living paycheck to paycheck, medical expense, etc...)

Obviously, these are, for the most part, depreciating assets. The real value in the car is purely the enjoyment and the people you've gotten to meet along ownership.

Most of us aren't in financial situations where we would be forced to sell, but if you are in that situation, I hope you choose the right path. You can always buy another E9X M3.

You can sleep in a car but you can't race in a house. There's nothing that'll make me sell my M's.

Jesus fucking Christ. Get well soon.

As much as this is so cringy, I shed tears when I watched my M3 drive away with its new owner. That car left an impression on me like no other car ever has. But like anything else material, I got over it. There is always another one out there with your name on it - especially when you have other pressing matters to take care of. A car is just a car.

If I needed the extra $ to buy an F40 Ferarri.

Ummm what am I saying, if I 'could' afford an F40 with their prices I probably would still be able to keep the E92 hehe

Probably the only reason I would sell would be if I ended up in a major financial crisis and needed the funds quickly. There is no other N/A v8 car out there that has a true DCT transmission in this price range.

Thank you. I'm a fighter and will get through this. One of the first of many things I regretted was obsessing over this car and not driving it, only has 86000 miles! I actually bought a Crown Victoria Police Interceptor so I didnt havent to use it all the time. By the way, those CVPI are awesome. Needless to say, the Vic is parked and the M3 it is being driven and enjoyed without a single care now
