2002 Member Rewards

I just saw a posting from Carlos Diaz-Estrada
saying that the new BMWCCA Member rewards program has been expanded to include M-cars for 2002. And........ my local dealer has an available M5 which I could pick up instead of my 330i this week. Hmmmmmmm.

If you can afford it, the M5 is worth every penny and some...

M5 vs 330

Yeah, but then I couldn't afford to feed my M3 track habit.

Unhappy

Is the member rewards program that significant in determining whether to get an M3 or 330i? I hope you buy the car which pleases you and that you can buy without regret.

I currently have an E36 M3. The question at hand was whether to stretch for the new M5 instead of the 330i I have ordered. The M3 stays! Considering that the 330 will be a daily driver, it will probably get the nod.

Both get a rebate.

Brakes won't cut it on the track

Based on the experience of a local track junkie, they kill front rotors very quickly. Not to mention the fact that I'm not willing to put a $70K+ car on the track, and you certainly can't really enjoy one on the street legally!

I just checked the BMW CCA website and it says that after 01/01/02 M3's will get a $500 discount, while M5's will get a $1000 discount. It's not alot, but it more than pays for the membership. When I had an E30 M3 they did a mailing offering a reward to purchase the E36 M3, otherwise I don't think they've offered the reward for M cars.
