Dude, how can the 5er be too small for a 30 year old? Do you already have a big family? Do you tote around big wig clients on a regular basis? You should do a two year lease on a new 550 and then when that's up you can pick up a new ///M5.

Personally, I can't imagine a 30 y.o. driving anything bigger than a 3er.
If your young and enjoy your 7, go for it!

When I was in my 30's, I had a 750i, 40 it was a MB SL (keeping it), now that I'm 50 it' a 640i GC.

To me, it cool to drive an older person car when your young, because your young. When your older, you may not want to drive ther older person wheels, getting the sports car makes you feel younger.

So maybe I'll revert back to a 750 or then M7, in my 60's.
