Your car was one of the cars that inspired me to trade my E92 M3 for my 435. However, I have already decided that my next ride in 2 years (or less) will be a F82 M4 in alpine white over black...

Carbon build up in 2014 F32 435D

Agreed. Once the Diesel engine issues started becoming known, I dumped my 335d with 15k miles and swore I would not buy another BMW diesel.

Opinions on Reeves BMW Tampa?

I can't stress this enough. Please call Adrian Avila and see what he can do to help you or call John Weltzien and see what he can do for you. If either of these guys can't make it happen, it is not...

No. But it allows you to buy from a dealer outside of your area and oftentimes good fest sponsors are outside of our area. Adrian and Greg are two perfect examples. However, with Adrian it is quicker...

So what that Adrian is an 8 hour drive. I drove 8 hours one way 2 times last year to buy from Adrian because he is that good. Many Floridians do the same.

It is quite likely that, when you purchased in 2013, the M3's were all gone.

Good move. Why not spec out a new one and see if the 1500 incentive this month makes a new one fit the budget? I am sure Greg or Jon can make you a great deal.

Select Financing - Early Vehicle Trade Up?

Being in CA means you have access to some great fest dealer sponsors. The two most popular in CA are Greg Poland and Jon Shafer. You have a very expensive 335 and a less than optimal deal/financing....

Anyone else bugged by the smallish gas tank?

How you got 330 miles per tank on the E92 is beyond me. Doing mostly freeway miles, my best tank was 285 miles before I hit 30 miles remaining warning. The only reason I am considering the M4 is the...

M Sport brake noise

Ditto. Mine do sometimes squeak when they get dirty and hosing off the brake pads (after the rotors are cold) to get buildup of dust off will make the squeak go away. If your wheels are dirty, I...

I bet you could get it with a fest sponsor who knows how to make a call and make stuff like this happen. Melbourne red is actually a good looking color and our 335 is Melbourne red.
