Mein Auto: 2011 335xi Coupe
Wow, my car is now 30 months old with 20k miles on it. The assistance I received here in buying my dream car was invaluable and is a story I've retold many times to perspective BMW owners. People love my fully loaded 2011 335 xi. My original plan had been to trade it in for an M6 after 2 years, but that has proven to be cost prohibitive, or just too decadent. I love my car and driving it into the ground for the next 5 years isn't a horrible prospect, but I also worry about losing leverage if I do decide to trade it in for maybe an M3. BMW started calling at 2 years to encourage me to trade it in, but their main incentive is to keep the same car payments, which is no incentive for me since I paid cash.

So, my question is, at 2.5 years, should I continue to try to keep the mileage low for a future trade-in, or has that ship passed? 6 months ago I stopped driving it to work, so I've only put 1000 miles on it in the past 6 months. Watching it go over the 19,500 mark was tough. :-)
