Service Engine Soon light

Mine just came on, but with only 50,300 miles on my 02 540i. Isn't it a bit early for Inspection 2? Anything else it could be?

I think paying any lease markup isn't a good deal. It's just padding the 1250 they are already making.

Panache

I think the 5-series is also a more "sophisticated" automobile and is viewed as a higher echelon car by folks. There is definitely an image difference between the two, and I think that has much more...

Most people don't drive 45k in 3 years as another poster alluded to, which makes the benefit even less.

btw, the M3 would kill my previous Boxster S in a straight line, but not handle as good or be the "ultimate" driving experience.

In all seriousness, BMWs aren't sports cars (well, Z8 possibly). The M3, while a superb automobile, is a GT. It's "sporty" but not a sports car ala 911, Vette, etc.

And I had an M3 on order, so...

6 months in an 03 bmw is hardly "suffering" either. Just wait it out...who knows 335i comes or something else, and you will be glad you did.

I agree. I prefer the shorter throw on the new E90 compared to my 540i. Also think the car may be too big for a manual.

A 1/2 to 1 second is a huge difference in performance. Go drive an E46 M3 vs. E90 330i and you will see.

Fact is the E90 really doesn't outperform its predecessor (330i) which sucks. Just like a...
