Why not?

Folks are gaga about the fwd mini . . .

So even though I know that God intended for any decent car to have power at its rear wheels, my expectations as to what can be sold to folks who will buy...

I know that loyalty and enhanced loyalty can be used for any car, but are the "extra special" factory to dealer incentives available for M3s?

I ask since a lot of the BMW incentives seem to be...

M3 is 24 Month Only

Not sure, but did you notice that the 0.9 financing for the M3 is only for a 24 month loan (at least in the MidAtlantic region) and it goes up to 3.9 for longer term. I am not sure how much benefit...

Seems like a decent, if not fantastic deal

It is a little hard to tell without knowing the exact invoice, but it seems like you are paying about $1500 above invoice, before taking into consideration the $1000 cash incentive (which is coming...

I Don't Get It

I currently drive a 2008 M3 (manny tranny, since I live in the stone age and don't care if a dual clutch may or may not be better -- like to do it myself), and my wife has a 2010 S4 with the dual...

3 weeks in shop for fuel pressure and it needs to go back again!

If cost is the concern, keep the 335i

As someone who has a 2008 M3 and whose wife drives (for now) a 2007 335i, I have to say that worrying about the reliability of the 335i as a reason to switch to an M3 seems questionable to me. Don't...

Trunk $ and Auto Trans Credit?

Folks --

The BMW Website lists a "free" auto transmission in both its finance and lease sections for the 2009 3 series. I understand that there is also $4500 in trunk money IF you pay cash and do...

Weight and Run Flats

I basically agree with what you are saying. However, since run flats tend to weigh more (somewhere around 15-20% more) than regular tires, and since this is really a safety issue, I certainly hope...

Tested an S4

Ok, I drive a 2008 M3, and my wife has a 2007 335i with the sport package. Her lease is coming up soon, so we thought that we would take a look at the S4.

I truly love the two cars that we have,...

Not true

Each dealership can, to a limited extent, markup the money factor, but they are by no means required to do so. Typically, they argue that this is a separate portion of the business that has to make...

M3 Vert and 335i Sedan

Re my comparison of my M3 Vert to my wife's 335i:

Yes, the 335i has the sport package (would not buy a regular 3 series without it).

And as for "vastly smoother", it is so many things, but I...

M3 in a heartbeat
