That's not too far from what I was budgeting for a nice 39 M5 if I were to go that route. I'll...

Title fixed--thanks.

Yup, these would be rare animals. I may have to buy a stock ZHP and add the goodies myself. An E46 M3 would be nice but I need 4 doors.

Thinking about business school? Hilarious video

Who says b-school is all work and no play?

Agreed. That is very expensive for that car. Low mileage is nice, but the 4yr/50k warranty likely expires very soon on a 2008 (often sold in late 2007 or early 2008).

For comparison, I'll soon be...

Not sure whether this helps, but I always need to give my car a little more gas to start off when the car is hot and loaded (a/c on, other accessories on, possible luggage and/or people).
