Vastly Superior in Every Way
I purchased a Genesis Coupe 3.8 6M a few years ago. I live in a fairly rural area and I am afforded the leway to cruise the back roads as I please...within reason. The Genesis is fairly unique and seemed reasonably quick. Everything I like(d) about it is gone. I was having my girlfriends Jeep serviced and my buddy gave me a loaner 135i for the better part of a week. It was a 2008.
It matters not what magazines, forums, etc. Say, the old 135 is superior in every way to the Genesis. It is insanely fast. Genesis is to 1 or 335 as my beater 2002 Civic is to Genesis. I have been living a lie.
I want a 335i but this 135i has 56k and is going for $20k. My concern is no warranty. The Genesis may feel substandard now, however, for another 60,000 miles all I can address any problem with the car by picking up the phone, they bring me a loaner and bring my car back when they are done.
That said, the BMW is awesome in every respect but not at twice the price for new with a warranty. What to do?
