: Dumping the 2007 525i for 2004 545i Sport

I am considering doing a lease swap on my 525 premium cold weather. There are many services out there and i negotiated a great lease IMHO. I am pretty sure someone would take this via a lease broker. I would in turn purchase a 545i sport premium cold weather, etc...with under 35k miles.

Am i nuts?? The power is just not there and i feel a little loose without the sport package.

It is a great car, but something is missing from my ride...

Any thoughts...

Thanks to all

The torque of the V8 is the greatest thing going! I picked up my 2003 540i Sport on a lease assumption and it worked out well for me.

I now have an 2008 550i Sport on order and the lease cost looks like it will be similar......

the 545 is a great car esp when compared to a 525. are you nuts , well maybe for buying the 525 but not for trading for the 545. but is it economical that you must determine.

Long story short...a friend of mine owns a 525...I have the 545...I let him drive my car and his comment was "dude I'm geedy"...gotta like the power!

I'm personally a power monger and can totally understand your need and want to go from a 525i to a 545i. I thought about buying one instead of my recent addition. I still may buy a E60 545i/550i/M5 in the next year or so. Only time will tell......they new look has been growing on me, especially with the aero kit! :thumbup:

The torque IS addictive, that's for sure! You'll love the 545, that's also for sure!
