Here is my problem.. Used M3 or New 335i/is
So, title kinda spells is out.
I will soon be in the market for a new car and I am stuck between these two options. For me, I prefer to lease, but I am considering a used (2008/2009) M3. I did some rough calculations and it looks like the used M3 (purchased) will cost about the same as a new 335i / 335is (leased).
So, now I am having my own internal struggle. Ideally, I would like to lease new, but I am considering the used M3.
My concern with a used M3 is potenial abuse, costly repairs (once warranty expires), etc. Are there any issues with the 08 / 09? If I grab a CPO 09, I would have between 3-4 years of warrant depending on when the car was registered.
Also, I do drive about 18k per year. So, while gas mileage is not a huge concern, it does cross my mind.
